We spent Wednesday driving around South OC exploring our old neighborhood. We saw the school I used to work at, we had coffee with a friend, drove past our old apartment & [@robertsapunarich](https://micro.blog/robertsapunarich)’s childhood home, lunch at our favorite place – Board and Brew, bought some Trader Joe’s brand liquor to bring back with us, drove through Trabuco Canyon, and walked Lake RSM. Then, an evening by the fire with friends. Catching up has been so nice! We all remarked on how natural it felt to chat after years apart. Sometimes it’s nice to skip the “so… tell me, what have you been up to for the past two years?” and just skip to the familiar companionship of being old friends. It’s been cold and wet here, but in the afternoon it was so clear we could see all the way to Catalina Island.
