Two little blue passports arrived in the mail the other day, and I think they look mighty fine sitting there next to mine, although it breaks my heart majorly, knowing that Will's maroon-colored passport isn't thrown in the mix - he will be severely missed during the time that we're gone!
Other than stocking Louisa May (that would be my Kindle) with mass quantities of LM Montgomery, and getting my itsy-bitsy baby's kindergarten registration stuff in order, I haven't done much to prep for this trip. I should probably think about what to pack besides the books ... yeah, that might be something to think about so I don't show up in only t-shirts and skirts and sundresses, like I did the last time we went to the UK and Sweden in the summer, only to be smacked in the face with cold weather and rain. Whoops.
But YOU GUYS, have you seen the article, from the New York Times, broken down by the Everyday Minimalist, in which a flight attendant demonstrates how to fit enormous amounts of stuff - enough for a 10-day trip - into a carry-on? (thanks for the link, Pinterest!)
I can't wait to try it.
Also, why the Grand European Adventure title, unlike the previous Grand UK Adventure title? Because we're going to a whole bunch of places!
*faints dead away from excitement*
Gracie's heart has been set on visiting Paris someday, so I figured while we're so close, let's pop over for a visit with the Eiffel Tower and the Mona Lisa. I talked to my MIL and she said, "Let's totes do it! In fact, let's road trip our way to Sweden and go all over the place!"*
*(not an exact quote)
Have I mentioned that I ADORE road trips? I think I need to get about a million extra memory cards for my camera...
And I think it's time I finished my Grand Spring Cleaning Adventure because the last couple months went by too fast for me to even remember to blog about them, and I know the next month will go by even faster. Yikes!
Happy Wednesday, folks!
