In the last round of east coast visiting in July, my wonderful suitcase finally gave up the ghost. The zippers had been failing one by one (you can see that the front pockets are held closed with safety pins), and the main compartment zipper gave its last zip when we got home (you have to admire the courtesy of that timing).
My parents offered me new luggage as a birthday present over the summer. When I found out that I’d be flying back to my college on the east coast to talk about my job at the end of the week, I got a bit more active about looking.
After many successes with their backpacks and bags over the years, I decided to go with LL Bean. The suitcase and flight bag showed up last night — they’re so pretty! Shiny and new! And they are dripping with pockets, which I think is so useful. There’s even one on the back!
I’ll be so stylish for my flight on Saturday! 🙂
Also, LL Bean sent yet another copy of their Christmas catalog. I was kind of miffed, since it still seems really early for Christmas and they’ve sent three already, until I turned it over and saw the cover.
Awwww. 🙂 Forgiven.
