Oh my gosh.
So I’m totally doing this whole 40 bags in 40 days thing being hosted by White House Black Shutters (That link will take you to the week one update that has links to the original post and everything else, including the Facebook group.)

Vacation is this amazing blessing and curse all wrapped into one.
