Will and I are in major honeymoon packing mode over here and I’ve basically become an online stalker of anything titled “safari packing list” (…sometimes I find myself on page 12 of Google search results and have to reel myself in). We leave on Thursday so if you have any packing tips to share before then, both of us are all ears! I told myself I’d do all our safari wardrobe shopping right after our wedding and yet I found myself placing several orders with overnight shipping as recently as yesterday. Nothing like a firm deadline to help me get my act together! 😉
One thing we know we’re bringing with us is a set of workout clothes, especially for all the walking we plan on doing during our three days in Cape Town. I’ve long been a fan of Zella tops and leggings (available exclusively at Nordstrom) and recently ordered a few of their items for Will when he asked me to help him pick out a new pair of sneakers. We haven’t been the best about getting into a workout routine together since we moved to Connecticut (I usually work out in the afternoons with my mom when she gets out of work) but we loved working out with a trainer together in Dallas and are hoping to get back into the swing of things when we get back from Africa. And dare I say I might even commit to taking a tennis lesson or two? Will played in college and is intimidatingly good but I know he’d make a very patient instructor so we’ll see. And we all know there’s no better motivator than a cute new workout outfit! Ali snapped these photos on Nantucket a few days before our wedding and looking at them takes me right back to the last minute jitters before our big day. While I’ll forever treasure our engagement pictures and am counting down the seconds until we see our wedding photos, there’s something fun about seeing pictures of us in more everyday weekend attire!
