It’s Sunday. We just sat in a car for nine hours. We’ve been in four countries in the last three days. And it has been AWESOME.

I can’t possibly ever put into words exactly how amazing it feels to see friends and family after being away for a while. In fact, it could just be a few weeks – hell even a few days – and I’m ecstatic. Especially my family. If you don’t know them, you’re missing out. I have some of the most incredible individuals to claim as my own and I appreciate them more and more each time I see them. I am unbelievably lucky!

A comedy of errors

The start to my trip was a series of small issues that I figured you would all enjoy. So I got to Logan early to check my bag because I bring my Swiss army knife with me everywhere, and while I have been allowed on 7 (yes, SEVEN) flights without security noticing it in my purse I decided not to risk it and just check the bag. The copilot on my flight was late because his bus broke down on the highway. We waited for him, and then when we pulled away from the gate we had to de-ice the plane because Boston is part of the frigid arctic tundra and these things happen. We finally left an hour and fifteen minutes late. You would think I would’ve been nervous about missing my connection in Miami, but no. I just slept the whole time instead.

Packing and what not

I’ve had so many people ask me how I can pack for a 6-week trip, so here’s the breakdown…

First and foremost, figure out the difference between want and need. Pack what you think you need, and then unpack it and take things out. That shirt that looks cute with that one pair of jeans you have that you think you’ll wear out at night? Yeah, pull that out. You can wear the other shirt that you wore last night because nobody actually remembers what you were wearing nor do they care that you’re wearing it again. Seriously. It’s true. Ask someone what you wore yesterday and see if they remember.
