I wish I looked like this while traveling- so cute and romantic.  Fact is I'm dressed for combat comfort not for looks and my bags are not half as cute as these minty ones.  You can see what my travel essentials are here. Plus I will have my four and a half year old on a very long flight.  I have my posts all scheduled and ready to go...I will be checking in here and there but hopefully you won't know I'm even gone.  In the meantime, pretend I look like this at the airport :)
