Early to Bed - Early to RISE!!

Vacation is only a wake up away!!! I am just about ready to go to bed - EARLY!
Louis Dean has already been in the guest room sleeping for a couple of hours now.

I packed my traveling clothes and they will be comfortable enough to sleep in -
which is exactly what I will be doing once we get past the metroplex.
It takes BOTH of us to navigate until then!
I love traveling in denim.

For YEARS I have worn this denim shirt when we head out on road trips.
It was a tradition for over 25 years!
You can see this is a much worn - much loved shirt!
It was brand new - still with tags on - when I bought it at a Goodwill for a couple of dollars.
It was a heavy shirt then. Now it is as light as a feather!
While I am not starting out in this shirt - it WILL be going with me!

I am only taking comfortable clothes that will layer well.
Mostly denim and black.

Packed and ready to load!
Dawn, do you recognize the small fall bag sitting on the suitcase?
That is holding my book, lotion, sunglasses and a travel cup for tea.

The car is packed and ready to go!
I have cleaned the house and finished up the laundry.
All that is left before I go in to shower and climb into bed is to water the front yard flowers.

I can't wait to get on the road again!!!!


  1. You will be on the road before you know it! I always get so excited the night before we leave for a trip. Have safe travels friend!

  13. Linda, I have always loved denim too. I have decided to go with lots of black clothes and pops of color....just to be more simple in my attire. Good trip and be safe. xoxo,Susie
