We took a rare family trip to Cleveland this weekend for 4 hockey games for the boy. I say “rare” because it’s not very often we take these trips as a family as one of us will stay home to care for the animals especially in the winter when everything is more work because of the cold and snow. We were only gone for 1 night.
I took these pictures of the things I had packed for an overnight stay and the “baggage” the tween queen packed. She had more packed for one night then the rest of the family combined. This picture does not include her purse, blanket, pillow and 2 favorite stuffed animals.
I remember those days being a teen and into my 20’s and early 30’s thinking I needed all of my “stuff”, yearning for more stuff that others had, and always thinking this stuff is good, but I need a few more things for my “stuff” collection to be complete.
Funny how as you get older the needs and desires for more stuff starts to fade away. The stuff I need now does not store in bags or drawers. My stuff consists of my family, clothing, and a good book.
I no longer yearn for better stuff. I am content with the stuff I have. I think I am growing up 🙂
