Misadventures with Mama

After a long, exhausting day, we were still on the road well past my midnight deadline. Mama had an afternoon appointment in Santa Clara (about a two-hour drive south across the Bay Area); after which, we visited her good friend Julie at her gorgeous downtown San Jose apartment. The two of them got a chance to catch up while I rested up for the drive home. Aren’t they adorable?

We watched the sun set out of Julie’s floor-to-ceiling living room windows. And then we enjoyed some delicious Caribbean takeout dinner with Julie and her daughter Rose, who is home from college in Denver. We got on the road late so we could avoid any traffic, though it was later than we’d even planned.

Mama and I had some misadventures attempting to find a gas station and then a wrong turn attempting to resume the trip, but we kept awake by laughing while we recounted some of our most historic and hilarious travel misadventures. Also, singing. Oh yeah, it was epic. I’m not sure there’s anything better than singing your heart out with your Mama in the middle of the night as we cheered the appearance of each new county sign.

Yesterday’s #OneGoodThing was misadventures with Mama!
