Being a week away from it and with my cold now in full swing, now seems as good a time as any for a mini report on my time at APE in San Francisco. It's a little hard to believe I was across the U.S. last weekend bumpin' around with full days helping Matt Madden and Jess Able with their daughter Aldara but my jet lag on Monday and burgeoning cold could not refute it. It seemed to rain the whole time we were there but despite that and the busy schedule Matt and Jess had, I had a good time. I always get a little nervous traveling with people who aren't my family but that's only until I remember that other people's trips are amazingly less stressful (is my family really that crazy..?!)
I was able to see some familiar faces as well as meet a couple new ones who I had only spoken with via phone/internet which really made the journey worth while. Also, seeing Matt and Jess function as family and work partners was kinda a treat for me. I know how my family works, so it's really nice to see how others go about it especially when they're working and successful in the same profession I'm in.
