After the always eventful air travel, I made it to the west coast right as the clock struck midnight. Phew! Brianna, Emerson, and family greeted me with smiles and we headed straight for midnight Chinese food. Who doesn’t love eating at midnight? I feel like it’s become a tradition (see here and here).
The next morning we headed straight for UC Berkeley graduation – complete with a inspirational speech from Steve Wozniak and a seriously red sunburn. I forget how drastic the temperature change can be from night to day in California! After grad we celebrated with some yummy food at Marica in Oakland. WOW. Highly recommended! I sneaked away after I ordered because the light was oh. so. pretty. and I had to go play. 🙂
The next morning we woke up at 4 a.m. and drove to Napa Valley in time for a sunrise engagement session. It was totally worth it! After our session we ate breakfast at Brix then wandered around St. Helena. A quick stop at Blue Bottle Coffee Co. and back to the airport we went. Bri and Emerson to Southern California and me to Sacramento to meet my hubby. 🙂
