We planned a little mountain getaway back in the spring, but had to reschedule – mainly because it just wouldn’t stop raining here in Colorado. But we finally headed up to the mountains this past weekend, and had an awesome time!
I am usually a terrible packer. Terrible. Sometimes I think there might be a snow storm at the beach, so bringing multiple sweaters seems reasonable to me. Even though, every time I have ever been to the beach, it’s been nothing but shorts and tanks and a swimsuit. But I was determined to pack light for this mountain weekend getaway. And, although it takes me time, the only way I’ve found that I can actually pack light is by creating outfits.
Planning outfits was easier for this trip because we knew what we were going to be doing; which I now think is a necessity when traveling with a little one. Planning things around a nap kept the weekend fun for everyone. And we did have a fun weekend!
As we were driving towards the mountains, my husband literally said “why does it seem like we have less stuff in our car?” Oh my darling, it’s because my entire closet wasn’t shoved into random bags all over the car. I packed light for our mountain weekend getaway!
