I have been neglecting my blog a bit, so it is time to catch up. I will start with a quick post about our recent trip to visit family in Indiana and Ohio. We only used carry-on luggage for this 10 day trip. We were staying with family, so we had access to washers and dryers. The grandparents also had books and toys to entertain the 5-year-old. In addition, we borrowed some clothes to wear to a wedding. (Thank you Mom and Dad!)
Still, it was not easy to pack in just backpacks and my tote bag. I read some helpful posts online to get started:
The Art of Simple Travel
Be More with Less
I did manage to squeeze in a few craft supplies to make a card for my cousin on the trip. (I may have strategically sent my mom a paper trimmer to help with this...) I packed precut card stock, 2 ink pads, a few stamps with an acrylic block, twine and a glue stick.
The real challenge will be only using carry-on luggage for winter travel. Challenge accepted! Do you have any packing tips to share?
