Hi there, friends! To say I could not be more excited about what me and John are up to today would be, literally, the understatement of the year. Earlier this year, I quizzed him for what felt like ages on what he wanted for his birthday celebration. It was like pulling teeth. He’s literally the least fussy person I know and not the type to want to make much of himself. He’s had the Ibiza trip with his guy friends planned for awhile so I figured maybe he wouldn’t want to go away so soon after but, when I suggested maybe going away for a weekend somewhere beautiful, he seemed really into it! His mom was so kind in offering to watch Louie for us so, that is what we are up to today. We are off to Corfu, one of the Greek islands!
As y’all know, I absolutely love a getaway so I’ve been so looking forward to packing up and heading out. Although, I will say, it’s much harder to leave when you’re leaving a huge part of your heart. Leaving my little Louie and our fur babies is always hard. But, just like when I left him with my Dad, I just had to trust that he was in the absolute best hands. John’s mom and her partner are going to spoil him rotten so we know he’ll be fine without us!
Okay, let’s talk what I packed [aside from these essentials]! This isn’t everything because you know I like options but it’s a start at least! If you have a Summer getaway coming up, I hope this provides you with a bit of inspo!
• This red bikini is probably the one I’m most excited about and it’s the one that might not make it in time. It was supposed to be delivered in 2-4 days with the last possible day of delivery being today so, ha … we will see how lucky I get. Being that this is a very adult vacation and I want to get as much sun as possible, I went with bathing suits with low rise bottoms. Other bathing suits I’m bringing are:
• I’m excited to see how this dress fits. It looks like a dress that could work for evening but could also be worn as a cover-up. What do you think?
• I had to buy this dress for our dinner on John’s actual birthday! It’s gorgeous and has a sassy feel to it which you absolutely should have with some of your outfits when you’re away on vacation with just your person. I think I’ll be wearing these sandals with it – they’re currently on major sale with an additional 20% off with code EXTRA20 at checkout!
• Y’all .. the level of excitement I have to just read by the pool is truly off the charts. I’m definitely bringing my Kindle so I can hopefully get through more than one!
Alright, ladies! Don’t forget to check out the widget below for some of the other items in my suitcase. Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to follow along on stories to see what we get up to and if you have any must-do’s in Corfu – leave them in the comments below! xo.
