Brand New Motivation

Nothing quite motivates me more for a trip than buying Brand New Luggage! Packing was never so much fun! The smell of the newness is intoxicating! We went to the mall in São José dos Campos about 150km from here and bought two new suitcases and one carry-on. This week will be a piece of cake when it comes to preparing our move and getting ready for our departure.

Guillaume & Thibault leaving the mall…


As soon as we got home this afternoon, I started separating clothes and objects – books, toys for the 11hr. airplane ride, toys for the 3 month hotel stay, &c. and getting things ready. I prepared the carry-on with all our important papers and oh-so-many passports. In the next couple of days I will try to get all the suitcases packed. We will have six total to be checked and four carry-ons, not counting the strollers and car-seats. It will be quite an expedition! The movers arrive Thursday to pack up our belongings. I am finally getting excited to ‘head home’ though leaving will be filled with sorrow.
