It's official. I'm getting nervous for my trip. I feel like its so soon, and I have so much to do before I leave! I am also a planner, and this is very unlike me to just go without a plan. I am taming the nerves with cozy wardrobes and pretty gift wrapping ideas, and its helping slightly. I am in love with the Thread Sence winter collection, and I want everything. These are my favorites though (above). I am also downloading all of my CDs onto my iPod to get my music ready today. I think music is one of the most important parts of a trip because every time I listen to my songs, it takes me back to wherever I was when I was listening to it. There are two albums that I never tire of, no matter how many times I listen to them. Ace of Base: The Sign and Lady Gaga: The Fame. I'm sure my friends are so sick of these because I have them on repeat in my car all the time. Smell is another one of those senses that can instantly take me back to a time in my life. I am planning on getting a new perfume so that whenever I put it on it will remind me of Australia.
