|The lone Travel Pro|
I thought I could manage it all in one big suitcase and one cosmetic bag from the TRAVELPRO company. The big suitcase is a bit battered, but it can hold a lot of stuff.
|My shoe dilemma|
I always begin packing by making a comprehensive list. This time I had a mini-travel-to-VA list as well. That meant casual clothes along with fancy clothes and professional clothes. And all the shoes to go with the various outfits for both parts of my trip.
|Purses and bling.|
|My new shoes in center!|
Didn't work. I just couldn't fit all the clothes for both parts of the trip as well as the shoes into one big suitcase. So up the stairs I went to get a small suitcase to use for the VA part of the trip. Sigh. I had to unpack everything, then repack it all and that worked.
|My shoes all fit!|
I guess I'll be shipping books back to Alabama because the shoes took up all my extra space!
|Two suitcases packed!|
And here's a confession: I left out a pair that I really wanted to bring, too.
P.S. I did pack my tiara. If you can guess where I put it based on this picture, I'll send you a Starbucks gift card!!
