Can you already tell that I am in a better mood than last week (sorry about that)?! I am!! I was in a real funk being stuck inside when our weather was so beautiful and fally - thank you to a wonderful friend for convincing me to head up to the mountains this past weekend and breathe our fresh mountain air. The leaves are just a little past their peek and still absolutely stunning. I feel so lucky to live in this beautiful place.
I am excited that Jonny and I will be heading back up this weekend, which got me thinking: we have quite a bit of travel coming up... Vail this weekend, my sisters wedding the following, and a fun trip abroad in November!! I don't know about you, but I have been lugging around my giant pink suitcase that my parents got me in college (that I can curl up and fit in btw) in hopes that no one would notice: 1) the sheer, ridiculous size 2) the interesting pink color 3) the holes and scuff marks all over (yikes!). And Jonny is in a similar luggage situation, minus the pink and monograms ;).
On our last trip I was so embarrassed at the condition of our luggage we did our very best to squeeze a weeks worth of clothing into Jonny's weekender, the only suitable piece of luggage that we had... I am sure you can guess how well that went. I have since realized the importance of investing in grown up and professional looking travel pieces.
The mall that I spend maybe too much time at ;)... has gone through a recent renovation and all of the new stores are beautiful and fresh, bright and pretty; Ghurka being one of them and I was instantly drawn to the quality and work that goes into each of their pieces. Which I learned are all handmade in Connecticut - I think that is really amazing!!
I love how each piece fits seamlessly together and so much thought has been put into the construction and design. (When you have been rolling around with a one trick pony, these are things you appreciate). I instantly knew I wanted the Kilburn because of the versatility, but have been going back and forth between the Cavalier I and Express II as its buddy.... suggestions/thoughts/comments would be greatly appreciated!
Hope the rest of your week is wonderful and you get the chance to enjoy some leaf peeping where you are!
