Less is more, pack light
Once again I am getting ready to take a trip across the country to get some well needed rest and sun...and remind myself that when packing, "less is more."
Over the years I have had a tendency to over pack and have gotten a case of the "what ifs. What if it rains, what if it's cold etc.
I have decided to throw caution to the wind this summer and take only those items that I will want and have the desire to wear,the bare essentials.
Why schlep all those clothes that I will just unpack unused when I have returned. I have even found the lightest of suitcases that can be lifted empty with one finger and rolls in every direction. This year I am making it very easy on myself.
When we are young, we need to pack many accessories just in case we may want or need them, not any more.. I am sticking to my mantra this time, less is more.
Now watch it rain and be cold this time and I will be freezing, lol...
I remember one year we went to Hawai'i and they had record 60 mph winds that week. We lived in our light jackets we brought along..
