On Friday afternoon, I said, “See you later,” to the place I have called home for the past 3 years. Of course, not before stopping by The Mason Jar one last time. I stopped in Wenatchee for the weekend for one of my best friends, Keisha’s, wedding. Sunday morning I drove 6 hours to Bend, Oregon where I stayed the night to rest, order takeout, and watch Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
While driving on my way to Oregon, the GPS on my phone took me on an unexpected route where I stumbled upon this beautiful location.
When I arrived in Oregon, I immediately ordered take out and put on the game. I worked on Monday’s blog post, “What’s On Face” which you can see here and stressed out over Sunday night’s episode of Game of Thrones.
On Monday afternoon, I was off on my next adventure and my final destination was California. It was roughly about an 8 hour drive until I reached my destination. This was my 4th time driving this route. If you have never taken a long road trip by yourself, you should. I highly recommend it. There is nothing more freeing than driving with your windows rolled down blasting Lemonade and singing at the top of your lungs.
When I finally made it into town, I was greeted by a beautiful California sunset and homemade tacos. “Home is where the tacos are.” I am so happy to be back in California for awhile until I start my next adventure in Virginia.
