What you can leave behind

No matter how much you pack, you are probably going to miss something. However, there are a few things you can leave behind:

  • Work

Enjoy a few intimate days with the love of your life. Focus on them, not your work 

  • Stress 

Stress about how much you spent on your wedding, about how many people you have to thank for their presence and gifts, about work. Leave any stress behind, you can pick it up when you go back. 

  • Frustration 

Were there things you wanted to discuss with your partner? About the wedding or about how someone got too drunk during your dance?
