Listen, I’m not going back to school, and there are years yet before Fabes is all dolled up and headed out to Kindergarten (thank the Lord in heaven), but that doesn’t mean I’m not dreaming of school supplies. What’s in your fantasy back to school shopping bag? Here’s mine:
Completely impractical, irresistible tablets.
Pencils with a sense of adventure…
…and a pouch to house them with the appropriate amount of humility.
The coziest notebook.
And a few more just in case.
Get it all packed to perfection.
Don’t forget your lunch!
Put on your most studious, adorable shoes.
The bus is waiting.
I can smell graphite and old books and new leather. I am watching for chimney smoke spirals. I have my eye on you, leaves.
