lifestyle || summer packing essentials

What better way to pretend like it’s the summer than to revisit my packing list from last month’s trip to Punta Cana and start thinking about my next traveling adventure? Yesterday we were visited by our usual April snowstorm, with really strong wind and biting cold. I wasn’t too happy, but as Willy Loman (from Death of a Salesman) very well knows, living in your imagination can help you forget reality for the time being.
