WINTER TRAVEL PACKING

HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS
TO GRANDMOTHER’S HOUSE WE GO
I love this time of the year because this is when my family near and far all gather and stay at my grandparents house in Kentucky to celebrate Christmas. This year is extra special because it will be Aneesa’s first Christmas and the first time the great-grands will meet her!
Aneesa and I are flying because I’ve paid my dues to the 9 hour road trip and I just want to get there especially with her in tow. I don’t know about you, but when visiting the grands I only pack comfy clothes because we just lounge, watch holiday classics and and eat all day. All though leggins and a big t-shirt in the house is my jam, respectfully I dress it up a bit around my elders who are more conservative. So I’m swapping out my leggins for some really stretchy jeans and t-shirts for soft and oversized sweaters.
Between the grandparents, my parents, aunts and her dad, I’m pretty sure I wont see much of my baby while we’re there. Fine by me because I’m going to reclaim my time as Aunty Maxine says and do some much needed self-care. I plan on doing a couple of face masks, paint my nails and hopefully read a couple chapters. I’ve been dying to get into mutha Michelle’s book.
