The summer has FLOWN by and, although we have a few weeks left in August, many of you will preparing your children for the new school year. From back to school clothes shopping, to stacks of new school supplies, to the smell of a freshly-packed lunchbox, I have always loved this time of year. Many of you know that I am crazy for office supplies and can spend a whole lot of time and money in the pen and notebook aisles at our local office supply store.
Having grown up in a large family, my parents used to shop for our supplies in bulk and I used to love the big box of colored folders and new pencils and a pack of wide-ruled loose leaf notebook paper.... Heaven! Because this is my holiday season of choice, I'm celebrating by sharing my favorite back to school ideas, teachers gifts and lunchbox must haves. Enjoy!
