"When taking a trip, my husband is the planner of all things.  I wanted to surprise him with a weekend away.  When I started to look into places to go and things to do, I was getting very stressed out.  I am SO glad that Pack Up + Go was able to take that stress away from me.  My friends and family thought I was crazy not knowing where we were going, especially since I hate surprises.  We were both pleasantly surprised at how stress-free and fun our weekend was!  Thank you, Pack Up + Go"
