The Sun is Shining Again

And with that, dear friends, I think that we are finished here.

For a lot of tiny little reasons and out of a hope for a new year with more time and experiences spent away from in front of a laptop screen. (Now and again, I may pop back in with an especially inspiring find or an art journal page that is sort of a blog post on its own. We'll see!)

Adios, best wishes and blessings to you all!  

(This little hope needs all the help it can get! Already I'm dreaming about what project to cook up next... :) )

On Traveling Light (And Warm)

We made it! We have survived the airport terminals, flown in a plane, been witness to a sweet wedding (love you, Clara and Levi!) and returned safe and sound. Wanting to travel with as little fuss as possible, Laura and I each tried to pack only a carry-on and purse.

It worked.

I was amazed.

In fact, I think there were even a few things in my suitcase that I didn't even pull out!

So this is the grand voice of one-time experience making note of 
How To Pack for 3 Very Cold Days in 1 Very Small Carry-on

{This is what I had planned to wear.} 

At the last minute, after another glance at the weather forecast dipping below the teens, I put a few more layers into the mix (aka - all the warm tops I own), as well as a warm green wool hoodie that Mama and Daddy gave me. Additions and changes are *ed below.

Everything was warm and comfortable, fitting snuggly into the bag which fit easily into the overhead compartment. The 3-1-1 ziplocs went into the little purple backpack with other essentials and room to spare. I was so thankful for that green hoodie! And for the extra tops...the thermometer dipped below zero more than once! 

We were blessed with good flights and great friends! In fact, I'm looking forward to doing this again...anyone want to get married in say...Maui?
