It’s that time! Summer has arrived with a bang and we are all anxiously packing our bags to go visit loved ones, explore an exciting new destination or just simply chill out in a home away from home. I was definitely one of those ‘over packers’ once upon a time, like a total diva I would literally take almost everything I owned even for a short weekend trip! After some enlightened wisdom and three kids later, I’ve learned to pack more efficiently and take the essentials along with me. Plus we need to leave room for shopping, right?
