I wanted to say thank you to all of you who commented on my Friday post! Andrew read it and said something "Oh! You did a real post!" Meaning, I wrote something from the heart, something "real." It made me smile. You all contributed to the post, adding your wisdom, your thoughts, your input! Happiness is tricky. It's more than just a magnet on your fridge or a sentiment in a card. You added to my happiness, affirming my thoughts on the subject!
Today is the first day of school for the kiddos here in Madison. I used to love the beginning of school each year. I loved the feeling of a fresh notebook and newly sharpened pencils (still do, actually). I loved the way my new school clothes felt, stiff and fresh! Of course, during college, this would be a week of intense syllabi-overload, complete with cold sweats and shaking :) But, I loved that too, in a weird way. I was always more productive at the beginning of the school year, invigorated by the amount of stuff to do. In memory of the delights of school starting, here are a number of my favorite school supplies from Broadway Paper!
