Can I just gripe here a little? I love back to school. The new books and supplies are awesome. I love a brand-new outfit and planning what I will wear is fantastic (and I would usually get TWO new outfits because I’d get one for my August birthday). But, what happened to just loving that? Now I’m seeing pumpkin spice things pop up already? I’ve seen loads of fall pins on Pinterest. I think many people got a “pass” on putting up their Christmas lights early last year because of covid – but, let’s just love the last fading days of summer, of hearing the ice cream truck and of jumping in the lake. Now if you’ll excuse me so I can go back-to-school shopping and score some great deals!
