Weekend Blog Roundup: Surprise Visit From California

This article was written by in Link Sharing. Add a comment.

Today was the first time my mother has visited me in New Jersey after moving out to California 10 years ago. The apartment in which I now live, my eighth apartment in ten years, was the first to be visited by my west coast family. I’m more than happy to travel to California twice a year to visit them, but it was nice to spend time with them and visit some of my mother’s “favorite” New Jersey spots like the grounds of the Institute for Advanced Study and Mastoris Diner.

The visit was a surprise. They called on Friday to let me know that they were in the state and we made plans to spend Sunday together.

While I was spending the day with family, you could have been reading these fine articles from The Money Blog Network.
