make-believe: back to school.

August 23, 2012
i’m not one to rush seasons along, but the end of august has always gotten me excited for school to start, whether i was actually ready to kiss summer goodbye or no. we’ve been having slightly cooler temperatures in the morning and evening around here lately and i won’t deny that a little breeze feels awfully nice. there’s no school for me this fall, thank goodness, but james is headed back to teaching (full time, go guy!) next week. here, a few favorites for shifting gears from summer to fall, whenever it is that i’m ready to.

    I'm all about the pencil, too, never (okay, hardly ever) the pen!

    Loving that lunch bag, I've actually been needing something to keep my lunch from getting squished in my tote on the way to work, that might be the answer. Thank you!

    I remembered back in high school, the first day of class was always anticipated. It didn't matter that summer was officially over for me, but the excitement always made me restless! This post brought me back to those far away memories, and shopping for school supplies. Best part, love the notebooks!

    Im not going back to school this year either but I love when I get to go shopping with the lovies to get school supplies. I tend to pick up a few things for myself lol! I love it. I now have 20 packs of my fave pens… they will probably dry up before I can use them.

    We also have 40 boxes of crayons…them seem to go through them at school so fast and the teachers only like the Crayola ones! I love to open up the drawer they are in and take a deep breath to inhale their lovely smell. Brings back some great memories.

    Good luck James on your new school year!!!

    Those are some awesome notebooks! If I hadn't stocked up on moleskines, I'd be getting some asap! šŸ˜›

    YES. I don't have to go back to school either (sigh); BUT, I want to play! It is my MOST favorite time of year. Okay. Except real fall. And Christmas. And my birthday. But other than that!

    That jacket is perfection! As is that necklace. And fall is always my favourite season. I'm ready to curl back up into m y sweaters. And to experience a French fall. My excited face is in place.
