17 days to go ...

It is the first day of March.  We have seventeen days (17!!) until we leave for Basel, Switzerland.
I am at a stand still because I don't know what I should pack. eek.  I'm also a terrible packer.  I usually get to where I am going and ask myself if someone drugged me while I was packing. 
 (* aside from  a quick reprieve in July for Thee Leavitt Wedding*) 
What would you pack if you were moving to Europa for 8 months?!


  1. I must preface this by saying I always over pack. I am learning to be a better packer by doing the following:
    I would pack things I could layer, in case the weather is unpredictable.
    I also think of any situation that could come up & have at least one option for it.
    Try not to have duplicates. I tell myself I don't need to bring every black cardigan I own or every pair of black heels. Choose 1 & stick to it.

    Have a safe & fun trip. You will be missed.

  2. Thanks for these great tips Alexis! You and i most likely have (collectively) the largest black sweater collection known to man.

    Hope your thesis is going great!!

  3. My thesis work is moving very slowly. I did not get that internship (I found out earlier this week) :( so the job search has begun. I'm very nervous about it.

    I'm hoping the best for you!

  4. That's too bad about the internship. their loss. Don't worry about the job search too much. Who wouldn't hire you??!! I know you'll find something great.


I love hearing from you (:
