Back to School
Tomorrow is the first day of school here in Nashville/Davidson County, and I’m dreading it! Not because I am attending, but because the traffic, especially during August and September, is crazy! Parents are adjusting to new schedules, and everyone seems to be running late. I’ll be glad when October rolls around and the traffic gets better.
For others, the start of school is a fun time, full of freshly sharpened pencils and new clothing. I love school supplies and always anticipated packing my booksack (a term JD tells me is only used in Louisiana) full of items in preparation of the first day. My favorites were the clean white notebooks, spiral-bound of course! Nothing would disappoint me more than when a teacher requested we used binders with looseleaf instead.
Getting caught up a little bit in back-to-school mode, I looked around for notebooks that a big kid like me would use, even though I’m not a student. Here are a few that I love:
I’m sorry to mention it again but I. love. this. notebook. These SusyJack notebooks are wonderful: unique and pretty. And only $12! I’m on my second one, and it fits perfectly next to my calendar inside my purse.
I also own this Dozi pocket notebook ($9) which is smaller than the SusyJack but perfect for jotting down ideas or other random thoughts.
This little guy from Small Square Design is the size of the Dozi notebook above but is spiral-bound. If you click the link to the product, you can see the litte details inside the journal, which I think make it. ($6)
