Merry Christmas to you!
Among lots of great things that I received for Christmas so far this year, my mom and dad got together and both bought me luggage for my travels! It's navy blue and a nice set of 2 pcs (one carry-on size, the other larger), and I was told tonight my mom got me a 3rd one that is on the way! My mom also got me luggage tags - they are big circles with pink tropical flowers on so that they're noticeable.
So, that's one thing down on my list!
I also got some christmas money, so hopefully that will help with other purchases for the trip - including the plane tickets themselves!
