My Mom: Los Angeles, CA

The main reason for my trips to Southern California is to visit my family, who moved there from Montreal over 20 years ago. We’ve kept in touch, and I do my best to visit them once a year if I can. This time around, it was for a very special occasion as my cousin Bram was getting married.

To my surprise, my Mom agreed to come with me to this event. While I felt that she should attend, given her historical disinterest in travel, I was sure she would say no. Not only did she say yes, but she was also in pretty good spirits the whole trip. I did my best to take care of her and coordinate the weekend and at no point did she complain and went along with all plans. I have to admit, I was expecting the worst and thought that it would be trying with both of us out of our comfort zones. I hadn’t spent this much full-time, mom-time in years.

When I got home and thought about our time together, I only had positive memories and was happy that I got a chance to spend that time with her. I know she appreciated it, and so did I.

She isn’t a fan of having her photograph taken (like me!), but I think this is a nice shot of the old woman!
