You may have already seen on my Instagram story that on Wednesday morning, I headed to Northern California for a quick work project. The opportunity happened to be just an hour outside of Mill Valley where I grew up, so I decided to turn it into a hybrid work-girls' trip with my mom. We stayed in a hotel room together, ordered (way too much) room service, watched movies, and had some long-overdue bonding time, just the two of us. We hadn't done anything like this in over ten years—not since she drove me to college—and it was so nice to reconnect in that way. As excited I am to return back to my daughter today, it was nice to spend two days with my own mom.
