It's funny the things that keep popping into my mind about being on the road.
I've been listening to favorite playlists while I work and when a certain song comes on, I find myself smiling as I recall that stretch of I-95 lined with trees that weren't quite ready to change. There were a lot of songs belted out at the tippy top of my range that day, you guys. It may or may not have been pretty, but I suppose that's just one of the perks of traveling solo, right?
I've also been digging through business cards, postcards and pamphlets I picked up along the way to remind myself of cool people, shops, art galleries and towns. As you might guess, I've been smiling a lot at those as well.
The one thing that I can't stop thinking about, however, is just how little I needed while I was traveling. My trunk was full, but I really lived out of a carry-on bag for much of the trip. I basically rotated the same items of clothing and washed them along the way. It was simple, no-fuss and—quite frankly—easier than having an abundance of options.
So, when I got home and was presented with an opportunity to team up with my friends at Clementine Daily and Glad's Glad to Give campaign, I couldn't wait to start going through my closet, to let go of my "maybe I'll wear it someday" clothes and to give certain items a new home.
You can read the full post here, my friends, and I hope you'll join me in paring things down a bit this fall. I must admit, it feels pretty darn great.
