Packing...

I always love the anticipation of a journey...thinking of all the places we'll go and all the people we'll see...it's exciting! Since I am a list maker, I have been systematically trying to take care of all the loose ends and get ready to go. I am getting down to the packing and trying to figure a nice capsule that will travel well with minimal wrinkles and will not take up alot of room. I need room in the suitcase to take presents for our little man. Gram is way behind on spoiling that little guy! Actually I am taking things to put together the advent stockings for the kids since it is so close to the holiday. Sewing lately? Not so much, unless you count hemming pants for my Hunny, last minute gifts and repair jobs. The Pippa bodice hangs pinned to Valentine, but all indicators point to a beautiful dress. I hope to buy some fabric while on holiday (can you say "Liberty" friends?), but most of all I plan to cheer for my marathon girl, hug my soldier and love my little grandson! I don't even think I will take any knitting...well maybe not. Flights can be rather long and monotonous. I do have my Kindle loaded up with some great books to read and there's always Scrabble to play with Tom! Well, better get back at the list...see you soon little Man!

The little guy's adorable! Have a glorious vacation!

PS: I always pack separates. A black skirt plus 10 tops is good for a week, in my book. And no one ever notices that it's the same skirt, hand washed and ironed in the hotel room when necessary. Just sayin'.

Enjoy your trip!

I have a general packing list that I adapt to each trip, but the clothes are always the hardest part.
