The Thoughtful Packer

I love it when you have nothing but time to pack for a trip. I got lucky this time around when I had to pack for the vacation I'm currently enjoying. Normally, I have to plan what I'm going to pack while I am at work or on the move, then come home and get it all done with very little time to spare before we head for the airport. This time, I had the whole day off before we left, and got to stand in front of the mirror and make considered choices about what I should bring. In the end, I managed to get all my evening clothes in and only packed 2 pairs of heels and one pair of sandals. Plus workout shoes, but they don't count.

Brand New Bug Eyes


Having worn cheap sunglasses for most of my life, lately I've decided that I need to do a little better by my eyeballs as I get older. I spend a lot of time squinting into the sun on the tennis court, the slopes, and all manner of other places, and you really do notice a difference when you have a pair of sub-par sunglasses.

These are the Jackie Ohh II sunglasses by Ray Ban. I love a big, oversized pair of shades, and these will do nicely. Super lightweight and big enough to provide adequate protection, these are my new go-to shades.
