You, my dear, are far to kind. And um, my panic is beginning because WHAT DO I WRITE ON YOUR BLOG THAT WON'T BE UBER STUPID?

See, I share your panic just a tic.

Miriam

I still can't believe you're going to be gone in Italy! for two!whole!weeks!

I'm so jealous.

La

Awww... that was so sweet!

Let the blog stuff go (responding, reading, etc.) Sometimes I do that and it's very freeing. We'll all still be here when you come back. I promise!

I hope I don't run off your readers, by the way, when it's my day. ;)

Operation Pink Herring

Mark all as read... doooo it.

As for the backlog that will surely await when you return... if you post a list of all the blogs you follow, I'll summarize all the ones we have in common while you're away so you can "mark all as read" without worrying you've missed anything!

Oh boy, I do the same thing when I am leaving for a trip.

Make a list and cross things off as you go along - that's what helps me.

Oh, and I'm SO jealous. I want to sip (gulp) chianti and stuff my face with mozz!

Michelle & the City

don't have a meltdown! :)

i'm sure you'll get everything done in time. it always seems to work like that.

Jenn

I hope you have a fabulous trip!

I'd say something reassuring except I'm too busy being jealous.

I started freaking out Monday morning, thinking, Is this it? Is today the day I'm on call? When does she leave? I had nothing, NOTHING to say. I was totally going to steal a meme.

As for packing,

1. Don't stress. Italy has become really very civilized in the last 400 years - there's little you can't buy there (and your hotel might have a hair dryer - call housekeeping). And if you can't, how bloggably exciting!

2. Leave your bag half empty if you can, or at least fold in a duffle bag so you can return with all the souvenirs and new foods and clothes you WILL buy.

As I blow dust off my wonderful and beautiful Mac, I just wanted to drop by and say how much you will be missed, but that I hope you have the most wonderful time in Italy with Colby! I can't wait to hear and see all about it :) Cherish every moment, take lots of pictures, drink yummy wine, eat lots of food and enjoy your long-waited honeymoon! xoxo

I completely understand the anxiety attached to travel plans. I'm ONLY going out of state for a couple of days and I've been meticulously planning everything for 2 weeks.

Good luck w/all that and I wish you a safe trip!

Also? Press "mark all as read"

seriously. no need to let the blogosphere add to the craziness.

Thanks for the lovely article

katelin

man i am so jealous you're going to italy for so long! ah! but i am right there with you, i hate the packing process like no other, oy.

Girl, Dislocated

You are tooooo sweet!

I know the craziness you describe, but you did a hell of a job planning and getting everything done for your wedding, so I know you'll soon have all of this under control!

e.p.

Don't freak out. It'll all get done. I remember I didn't pack for my entire SUMMER in Italy until the morning OF. Yeah. But somehow, I managed to get everything in my bag. *shrugs*

Have a great time! I cannot wait to hear all about it! I hope you manage to pass some of my old haunts along your way!
