"all my bags are packed..."
I definitely like packing for summer trips more than for winter trips. Because in the summer? I can fit two pairs of pants, two skirts, nine shirts, three pairs of sandals, one pair of sneakers, a swimsuit, a pair of pajamas, and plenty of undies - along with my cosmetics and toiletries, my hair dryer, and other items - in one small suitcase quite easily.
Add a backpack and camera bag, and I'm ready to go on vacation! I even have Bear along for the ride - so stay tuned for a documentary of his trip when we return.
(Oh, that blue tote box? That's stuff for my layover at Mom & Dad's before and after our trip. Because I'm organized like that, and because I didn't want to fool with packing up toiletries at 5 am.)
Something else to stay tuned for? My experience with my new camera tote. From a packing perspective, I'm already thrilled with it - look at how neatly everything fits in there! Can't wait to see how it does while I'm traveling.
"No, Gru-kitty, I can't take you with me. But thanks for lying on my clothes to make sure I carry some cat hair with me." This was the only sad part of my trip preparations - because he definitely seems to know I'm going away, and I am sad that I won't get to cuddle with him for a while.
Where I am: en route to Cuba!
