Did anyone else wake up and smell that tiny whiff of autumn in the air? I swear, no matter how old I get, that particular smell will remind me of school. Of crisp pieces of Big Chief tablet paper, boxes of 24 number-two pencils, Trapper Keepers, rubber erasers, and ham-and-cheese sandwiches on whole wheat with mayo. Of a butterflies-in-the-stomach excitement (and a little apprehension) to meet new friends and wear new fall shoes.
Anyone else thinking fall thoughts? Are you starting to make plans for an autumn getaway or anything cool like that?
