Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

I haven't even left and I'm already exhausted!!!
Packing overwhelms me!
It's not what to's what to leave that I need help with!
I know that I only ever wear a couple of things over and over, but it's the comfort of looking at all the lovelies lying there just in case!
I just can't pack light! Even when I packed for my kayaking trips you would think I was going
on an expedition to Everest!
I need a packing elf to come in and rescue me...Help!
Hopefully by the morning a miracle will happen and I will have everything neatly packed into one tiny suitcase...are you laughing Sis?...I think I can hear you
Anyway, wish me well and keep the blog going darling sister while I'm away...I'll post when I can.

Ok...I think I can squeeze just one more pair of shoes in here...did I just say that out loud?


  1. Oh...I can just see you! Visions of our trip to Italy and you dragging that ENORMOUS suitcase over the cobblestones on the way to the train station.
    "...everything packed into one tiny suitcase..." LOL!

  2. Ah Victoria!

    A fellow "over-packing soul"! Ask Holley about the 4' long wheeled duffle I took to Prague - a human could have lived in it! It was very quickly "retired" after that trip!

    I know I'm laughed at with all the things I take "just in case", but who else will have the puffs/cough drops/extra leggings/etc which are usually very appreciated when forgotten/needed by others?

    When you find a "cure", PLEASE share it with me! ;)

    Happy Travels - will miss your imput until you return!


  3. Remind me never to travel with both of you at the same time. I'll just meet you 'there'!

  4. J. you live and travel with a man who packs wooden tree supports for all his shoes!!
    oh by the way...just arrived at destination...guess what....
    they lost my luggage!!!!!
    Ha ha ha ha wah wah wah!!!
    talk about no 'baggage' coming with me on this trip!

    Lili...I knew we had a connection!!!

  5. Couldn't stop laughing...hope your luggage arrives soon!


Go on...make my day...
