My brother's youngest son was being Bar Mitzvahed in Palm Desert, CA and it was a command performance for me. We had decided earlier in the year to not stay on the west coast and make the trek across country in late January (like we had done the prior year), it was too cold and we were really anxious to get back to Cedar Key. So this meant we would be flying back to California for the event. We were going for a week, though, so it wasn't going to be that difficult.

grueling 3 hour mammogram!

Along with my personal agenda we were really there for a celebration! And celebrate we did - my nephew Izak is the cutest kid with a huge personality. He's smart, confident, athletic and has style - what can I say, I'm a little biased. He did an awesome job and my brother and his wife know how to throw a party. He even made sure we had plenty to eat, plant-based.

The best thing we did on this trip was, after five days with my parents, all the running around and celebrating, we booked a couples massage at our favorite little hideaway in Desert Hot Springs where we could unwind and relax. From there we drove into Ontario, CA where I had a tax class the following day before we flew back "home". Needless to say we were pretty exhausted by the time we got back to Tampa and the 2+ hour drive to Cedar Key. We were both anxious for our own bed and specifically, our own pillows!
