When the seasons change, the bathing-suits get packed away, and the kids head back to school it always brings me back to that “new school year feeling”.
When I was in school, I would always get so excited to wear a new outfit on the first day, see my friends again, and secretly, I always got giddy excited about learning something new. I loved the smell of new parchment paper and the must of an old textbook that you would get to write your name in because you “owned it” from 2008-2009. (I don’t even know if they still use these anymore.. But still! It was the best.)
There was something magical about a new beginning and the unknown.
