Last minute packing frenzy......!

Ok so this is it....tomorrow this time I will be on my way to New York, and then on to DC for The Big Day...my son's wedding on the 5th of September, followed by a reception in Seattle and one in San Jose!! I am so excited, I am bursting out of my seams!!! Its been a chaotic week, to say the least....things always come down to the last minute no matter how much you organize and intend to get it all done ahead of time. For me anyway, I need the pressure of the last minute to get me moving!

I will be off the blog radar for a while, but hope to make up for it with gusto after I get back, with my new computer at my new blogging station. I will be reading YOUR blogs though...have to stay abreast of that! I am especially excited because I am hoping to meet Anu of My Dream Canvas in Seattle, and Priya of OUATT in San Jose! So wonderful to meet two people who were my very early inspirations to start blogging!

Here are some last minute shots taken over the past 2 days....the utter madness of packing for an overseas trip, and a wedding to boot!!!
Bearing gifts for all....

Trying to decide what jewellery to take....
Bangles galore....
And more....
And more...
Lucy trying to sabotage my packing
Aided and abetted by Junglee....
Travel documents
Medical insurance papers
Snacks, useful sustenance during those long layovers....
See you all back here on the 17th or 18th....as soon as I get over jet lag, I'll be blogging again! In the meantime, have a fabulous awesome September all of you!
