Back to Life, Back to Reality...

....and Back to School!  The first day of school was always so much fun for me as a kid.  I loved school and all the fresh notebooks to doodle on, sharp pencils and erasers, new shoes without scuff marks on them, new teachers and old friends.  What's not to love?!  Today I dropped off my 2nd grader at school.  Its a pretty exciting day, even if he wouldn't admit it. As a 2nd grader, this "first day of school" stuff is old hat.  He posed for a picture, just for his momma.  How sweet!  As we were dropping him off, we had to swerve around all the other parents trying to get first-day-of-school pictures.  Maybe its a bigger deal for the parents than the kids?! My baby starts preschool tomorrow, it's his last year of preschool.  I'll process that later. I'm happy and sad all at the same time if that makes any sense....

We are back into routine and parts of that are sure are nice.  Its great to have a schedule and be able to count on things being the same for awhile.  After moving and starting a new job, routine sounds just splendid!

In honor of all our kids going back to school I have a special promo in my shop.  FREE SHIPPING!  Yes you read that right, free shipping on all domestic orders with the promo code BACK2SCHOOLSHIP, now thru Sunday night, 9/11/11.  

In closing, in honor of back to school, I organized the shoes in our entryway closet.  Adding a shelf to put them on made all the difference in the world.  Here's to getting organized one drawer, room or closet at a time.  What are you organizing today?
