There comes a time in every woman’s life when she has to look closely, inspect dimensions, and declare “There’s NO WAY that will fit!”
Which is exactly what I did when I stared at the pile of clothes and presents I want to bring to Sweden with me next to the suitcase it all has to fit into.
Quite frankly, I’m more than skeptical that it will all fit.
I’m in disbelief.
It’s just not going to happen folks.
And of course, as is my way, instead of getting rid of the wine or the presents or the makeup, I’m eliminating my clothes.
Who needs clothes anyway?
All I need is a fresh pair of underwear and I’m good to go.
One dress, one sweater, one jacket, warm leggings and VOILÁ!
You have yourself packed for Sweden.
I’d like to say that this time around I’m flying by the seat of my pants, but no.
I’m packed a week ahead of time and I have an inventory.
Because I’m neurotic that way.
The good news is that when I come back, I will be 5 bottles of wine and 2 bottles of champagne lighter than when I left.’
I fully intend to drink and gift the wine to The Swede and his friends and family.
Just in case I meet any of them, I’m prepared.
California wine FOR YOU!
AND FOR YOU!
AND CALIFORNIA SPARKLING WINE FOR YOU!
Happy faces, all around!
