But for this month-long trip to Vancouver, I really tried to pack light. I filled one large suitcase, and one small suitcase, then shipped one medium sized box full of cold-weather gear (we're going to be doing a lot of night shooting), a medicine ball and a couple yoga DVDs. Oh. And a pair of cute boots.
For a month, that's packing light, right?
("Yes" is the correct answer. Any other answer will be disagreed with adamantly. Remember: this is FOR A MONTH.)
Anyway. As I was getting dressed this morning, I realized: There's something seriously great about having a severely limited wardrobe.
I didn't stand in front of the closet, stressing out for ten minutes. I didn't try on multiple outfits. I didn't work myself into a sweat running up and down the stairs to review my choices in the full-length mirror. (Which reminds me. Must get full-length mirror upstairs.)
I just got dressed.
Easy as pie.
As someone who's been working on reducing the amount of stress in her life, turning something stressful into something as easy as pie feels like a great accomplishment.
Just one more thing to love about Canada.
