I love back to school. I love how it always feels like a brand new, fresh start. I love all the opportunities ahead; opportunities to learn and achieve and succeed. I even love back to school shopping. I love the chance to start fresh while looking your best. I love getting and then saving that one outfit to make a first impression with. I love fresh, crisp, and empty notebooks that hold so much possibility. I love long, pointy-tipped pencils and pens full of ink that are just waiting to be useful.
I love all of this even now that I’m not going to school anymore. I love it for my kids, especially after watching my oldest learn and grow during his first year of school. I still love picking out school supplies too and getting him dressed for that first day back, but I admit that it is a little harder to get as excited when all that back to school stuff is coming out of my wallet….
