    Unexpected One Week Trip to CA

    I love to plan my packing for trips well in advance and my mind has been in my next trip to London. But, I will be heading out to CA shortly to lend a hand to one of the most important people in my life -- my cousin, best friend, and role model -- as she begins her battle against cancer. Her prognosis is very good and I feel honored that she asked me to be there to provide support.

    Here is what I've thrown together (I'm sure I can do laundry, but I don't want to have to think about it):
    In large WF cube:
    7 shirts
    1 thin hoodie
    1 pair of pants
    2 skirts
    1 pair of shorts
    PJs
    Unmentionables
    Socks

    PCSB:
    3 sets of workout clothes
    Belt
    Hair clip
    Face wipes
    Antibacterial wipes
    Baseball cap
    Hipsister band (to hold my phone/ID while working out)

    3-1-1 bag
    Tumi accessor bag with makeup, brush
    Sonicare toothbrush
    Small Nordic pouch meds kit
    Mini UV pouch with earbuds
    Medium Azalea DOP with notes, pens, paperwork
    Size 1 Iberian TSS with power adapters
    ETA: slippahs (flip flops) in the lavender bag

    Not pictured all spread out is my 11" MBA but you'll see it all packed. I think that's it, but my mind is fuzzy today.

    Pokilani my very best wishes and all the healthy vibes I can send via the WWW for you to take to your cousin.

    (Great pictures and packing-list and LOVE the Nordic but can not press like on a post with cancer in it.)

    Pokilani, I hope the beautifully packed WF helps your travels go smoothly, and that your cousin's battle against cancer also goes smoothly. I'll be sending thoughts of good health, too.

    @Pokilani, All the best to your cousin. I'll be sending good thoughts both your ways. And it's great that she has strong support from you, to see her through, and help her to a rapid recovery.

    I'm on my way back home with the amazing WF! I think I love this bag more than my A30, especially in needing my laptop for this trip.

    My cousin is doing amazingly well! So well, in fact, that she raved about my shop bag when we were on a little outing last night. Wanting to share the SB love, I left her with my lovely Steel SB. Now I have to add one to my back order!

    Thanks again for all the warm wishes and positive vibes for my cousin (and me). I'm really just stunned by her quick recovery. It mostly felt like a vacation!

    Pokilani so glad to hear about your cousin being all better. What a very great way to be able to get around that bag ban. That Shop Bag will be like a seed that will grow into a beautiful dynemma-colord plant :-).
