My favorite time of the year has finally come: Summer, birthday month, and our annual week on Sanibel Island! My soul NEEDS this like my lungs need air...salty, ocean air! I have been visiting the island with my family since I was about 15, except for a few foolish years where I thought it was a better idea to stay behind with friends or boyfriends. Foolishness.
Even with all of this experience...even though I know I won't really need anything beside bathing suits, T-shirts, and shorts, and flip-flops, and maybe a sundress...I have to really try to curb my packing. I usually end up bringing way more than I use...just in case.
Above is a snapshot of what I'm taking in the art bag. Whittled way down. A sketchbook, colored pencils, sharpener, black ink pens, scissors, glue, watercolors, and cameras. That's it. And that is for Leila and I (although I think she has her personal stash of coloring books/crayons).
I won't even show you the book bag!
If I can get wi-fi, I'll post. If not, I'll see ya in a week!
