From Donna:

As I mentioned last week, we’re shipping luggage to our upcoming Seabourn Sojourn cruse using Luggage Forward. Well, the bags have been picked up. The next time we’ll see them is in our Sojourn suite. It’s a wonderful feeling to be packed and ready to go so far ahead of time. Relaxing, actually. What will I do with all that found time? Write like crazy so that you have something to read while I’m cruising in Asia and Alaska.
