Surprise. The great procrastinator that dwells within me is loving life at this moment. We leave for the great Chicago trip in just two more days and there is such a silly amount of stuff we still have to prepare. A major list must be made soon! Last year we went to Chicago on the cheap and packed what we could into what we would carry---each of us had a backpack a piece. This year I have been harvesting a new and improved wardrobe. The freshest my closet has seen in many seasons. It also means we are taking real adult luggage. Note: there are two grey shirts above---but they are blouses instead of t-shirts:).
