Sometimes a weekend getaway is much needed! After being back at work full-time the last few weeks, a long four-day weekend is much needed.
We are traveling about four hours to upstate, New York. To survive the road trip and probably a bunch of traffic, we (my amazing husband since I was at work all week) packed a bunch of snacks and sandwiches for the car ride.
This week has been hectic because I have been working all week and my husband has had off. Keeping the house clean every day and getting laundry, dusting, vacuuming, dishes, etc. done is exhausting, but I like to come home to a clean house after a getaway!
What I thought would be an easy travel, meaning we wouldn’t have to pack a crazy amount like we did for our cruise over the summer, turned into packing a crazy amount.
We are meeting my whole family up at a lake house. We brought camping chairs, yard games, and a bunch of clothes for the warmer days and really cold nights, rain boots, Uggs, sneakers, flip-flops! Oh, and I can’t forget Lucy, our dog! We have her bed, bowls, toys, and food for her!
I cannot wait to be away though and sit out near the lake in sweats and relax! I am hoping the leaves are changing colors up there because it will be a really pretty backdrop for some pictures! I’m actually packing my camera for this!
Morale of the story… I wanted to pack light, but for some reason I never can! Please share your tips for packing light below. I am always worried I will need something.
