This weekend I’m winging my way to Arizona to play Auntie Camellia to an adorable niece and a brand new nephew. I can’t wait to cuddle that new baby boy, build bunk-bed forts with the imaginative little girl, and spend time catching up with my brother and his wife. I plan to do some serious lounging by the pool as well, because when you’re in AZ in late August you just must. Here are a few things necessary for a trip to see family in the sun. My bags are packed and I’m off! Happy weekend.
