It was nice to finally meet some of Brandon's extended family and especially his Mamaw! I have never met a guy that seems to be as close with his grandmother as Brandon. When he would talk on the phone with her I would laugh silently because her accent is so cute. Before I ever saw a picture of her, I imagined she would look like my Grandma Karm had. Short, pleasantly plump and white haired. I was way off. Brandon's Mamaw is petite,thin but shapely and pretty stylish with brown hair. She is a beauty.
I wish that I could have made my first trip to Alabama under better circumstances, but the experience was overall pretty good. I will say that my New Year's resolution was very tested through the short trip, but I tried to get out of my self imposed box and go with the flow. It was tough, but at least I tried!
