It begins again

Today is September. Wow. I can't believe that school has started, that the summer is over and that the leaves are going to start falling soon. Hmm, maybe that's a bit melodramatic. The first week of school is actually one of my favorite weeks of the year. Students are excited and there is still so much anticipation for the unknown.

When I was growing up my mom would take off from work on the first day of school and she'd make sure the house was deep-cleaned and bake something delicious with apple pie for dessert. When I started grad school I started doing this for myself. Although my house won't be as clean as it was growing up, I think I might make a pie for the first day of class. And I might take a day off from scoring and folding cards.

Sounds like my mum. I'm going to be a senior in high school and she has yet to miss a first day.

Oh, and your cards come from Rochester, NY. Have you ever been there?

Sarah, glad to hear your mom does the same things. I always love it. I live in Rochester and I do all of my printing in a studio downtown.

That's funny, I live in the suburbs of Rochester. I'm tempted to look up the studio you use for printing myself :)
