We leave for our trip in less than a week! I'm so excited.
We decided to cut out Vegas and Los Angeles. The new plan is that we're flying into San Francisco, spending a couple of days there. Then we'll spend the rest of our vacation relaxing in Carmel.
I tell ya, I am so ready for this! Especially after all of that preparation for the Paris Flea.
I have a project that I want to do before we leave on our trip. I bought this "naked book" by 7 Gypsies. I'm going to decorate each envelope page and mark it to indicate the day of our trip. For all of the wonderful suggestions y'all gave me for our trip (do you have any more?) I'm going to make little cards. The cards will have pictures of the destination, directions, and a description. I will tuck these cards in each day's envelope. Once we are there, we can choose from the cards to plan the day ahead of us. Or move cards from one envelope to the next.
The book will also serve as a catch-all for mementos, receipts, etc. for each day. That way when I get home, I'll already have a "scrapbook" made to preserve our memories. I'll be able to tuck in photos once we print them out and stash them in the corresponding envelope. Or I could make a separate envelope for photos.
This is the project I'm making for the travel swap too.
