We’re mostly packed for our trip. I say mostly because hubby has this wonderful fly by the seat of his pants mentality and is packing his stuff piecemeal.
I, on the other hand, have lists for my lists, and have been packed since Sunday. Packing for both Boogie and I brings about a sense of urgency to make sure that I’m not leaving anything behind. The last thing I want is to get to the airport and realize something essential was left behind.
The truth is, I’ve always been like this when it comes to traveling and in general. I hate feeling unprepared for anything, and make sure to check and double check before heading out.
As we get closer to leaving, I find myself getting more excited for our time away. This will be out first vacation as a family, and I’m hoping that it’s the start of a new tradition.
My family didn’t do a lot of traveling when I was a child, and that is something that I want to change for Boogie. I want him to be able to see and experience different places. Hubby and I are hopeful that we will be able to take 2-3 trips a year going forward. We plan to start small, with short trips, and once Boogie has gotten a little older we will start to spread our wings, so to speak.
Here’s hoping that things go as planned and that we make many wonderful memories along the way
