Need I say more! Unforgettable!

The Trial Pack

So I'm about to leave for Spain . . . for 10 months! I really can't believe it. I'm so excited and so terrified all at the same time. Why terrified you might ask? Well I coerced my father into helping me do a trial pack. For those of you who know him, just imagine Carl sitting on my bed calmly and rationally discussing the needed amount of tank tops and accessories. I wanted to make sure my 50 pairs of shoes would make it in my allotted luggage space. Needless to say, they do not fit. After many groans and cries of frustration I resigned myself to 10 pairs and only half of my clothes. It was a rough start, but hey that means more shopping in Spain. Right? Getting my booty home? I'm not thinking about that yet. That's almost a year away.

Here I'll be recording my adventures from time to time. I can't promise that I'll be faithful or interesting, but I will try my best. Next time I write I will be in SPAIN! Woohoo! May the tapas, bullfighting, and espanol begin!

p.s. - As for the title of the blog . . . yes it's from My Fair Lady! I could never forget Audrey Hepburn's hat in that movie. A classic. Although for the record, it was Adrienne Chaudoin's idea. Brilliant!
