Back-to-school special

Happy Monday everyone! And if you are like the kids in my neck of the woods, happy first day of school!

There was such a fun energy today. The traffic was heavier this morning, kids filled the sidewalks, all the stores have been featuring their colorful and organized school supply merchandise–so fun!

OK, the excess traffic wasn’t quite “fun.” 😉

But it does make me wish I was stocking up on cute folders, getting a new backpack, meeting new friends and learning new things all day. But, I’m not.

So instead, I thought I’d would do a little linky round-up of my favorite school preparation info lately. Hopefully it’ll inspire you to conquer another school year, or just send you down memory lane. 🙂
