‘Tis the start of a wonderful week. My husband and I (our first Christmas together!) are headed over to my parents’ house where we’ll spend the next few days taking part in all of the Christmas festivities. We’ll take Thursday to relax (maybe a movie?) and do some packing, and then we’re headed to Harbour Island bright and early on Friday morning. Sounds pretty great, doesn’t it?

Since I really don’t want to be stressing over my suitcase (and that’s usually what I’m doing the night before a big trip) on Thursday, I’ve started the packing process earlier than usual. The good thing about Harbour Island is that it’s one of those places that doesn’t require too much effort. It’s all easy-breezy dresses, sandals, and swimsuits. And you won’t find one pair of heels (besides a little one like this) in my suitcase.  During the day, I’ll probably be in my swimsuit and something like these. For cocktails and dinner, I’ll switch into a dress like this, a pair of wrap-up sandals, and my very favorite arm of bangles. A sparkly pair of earrings is about as dressy as I’ll get. That’s it! Now you’ve got my packing list.

On that note, I want to download some great books. Send me your recommendations, pretty please!
