My Life in 3 Suitcases

Just some of what I've packed
Ladies and Gentlemen, I have packed my belongings into two suitcases and one carryon for the next year! It was easier than I thought it was going to be, but I better not jinx it until I at least get to Atlanta.

I packed some of my heavier things in the carryon, which weighs in at 23 pounds!!! My entire family (including my 13 year old sister) can lift the bag over their heads, but I sadly cannot. Hopefully I will be able to find enough kind strangers stronger than I to lift my bag safely into the overhead bin.  

Below is a general list of what is in each bag. [More for future LC’s than other readers J]
