This weekend I am heading back home to Bakersfield, CA to visit family and close friends. It’s been 3 years (almost to the date) since I’ve been back home, so I’m really looking forward to reconnecting with my extended family. I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve been back there, but with my parents living only 30 minutes from me here in Colorado, I’ve been fortunate to not have to travel too far to see them.
One thing I can count on without a doubt is that Bakersfield is going to be HOT, so I’m packing the bare minimum on this trip. It was strange as I started to pack because I packed so little that it really felt weird to me! Below are a few travel basics I’m bringing in tow.
