Bride 3_.jpeg

My friend Laura and I went to Napa Valley for a girls trip and one last hurrah before her July  wedding to her boyfriend of nine years—a true fairytale romance!

 

Since Laura and I needed to be at the rehearsal as the bride-to-be and bridesmaid, our plan was to return the following day, which was the night before the wedding. We would land and go immediately from the airport to her rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. However, while in California, we monitored the weather and noticed that there were storms rolling in, and worried that if we didn’t come home early, we might not make the rehearsal or even the wedding.

Being an Employee in the airline industry should make me an expert packer, but judging by number of times I’ve had to pack and repack my bags to make everything fit just right, I’m far from that. As the saying goes, practice makes perfect, and sometimes a few tips friends or the internet can help.

It’s not a secret that here at Southwest Airlines, we are a Company that has always shown love, support, and admiration for our Military.

Toddler Jeep.jpg

In California over the holidays, my toddler son received a power wheels Jeep as a gift from family. My mother thought we could easily return it to the store and have it reshipped to our home in Washington due to the large size, but that was sadly not the case.

 

As a last resort, we attempted to pack it up to ship as oversized baggage for our return trip home only to discover that wasn’t going to work. A wonderful Southwest Employee heard our dilemma and was determined to reunite us with my son’s holiday gift. In all honesty, I never expected to hear from him again...
