TEN FOR THE WEEKEND

In my mind, I'm vacationing in the tropical paradise of Turks and Caicos, lounging near the pool, awaiting my next margarita under a massive umbrella. In reality, I'm stranded in a generic airport hotel by my airline, which cited weather/goats/days-ending-in-day/mechanicals/pollen/and ocean currents as the reasons for cancellation. At least it wasn't sun spots. Or a pirate attack! ("If your cutlass will not fit in the overhead compartment, please press the attendant call button. In the event of a water exit, do not attempt to take your chests of gold with you.")

So enough about my ACTUAL trip. Actual things, as Anne of Green Gables pointed out so many decades ago, are rarely as fun as imagined things. And my imagined trip is marvelous. And of course, I packed well - here's what I'm wearing and carrying this weekend!

Air travel. If only we could get to our vacation destinations as quickly as we could dream up our outfits ;)

Hope you've made it there and it's fabulous....

In my mind I'm back in St. Thomas with your umbrella, suit and the beach towel...okay Chanel sunglasses and a lovely ankle bracelet.

I hope your flight eventually left and you are now enjoying a relaxing weekend! I too almost didn't make it on my trip to London because of the volcanic ash cloud. Your packing list is fabulous!
