Just Because…

With all my friends buying school supplies for their littles, I am reminded of the joy I felt when going with my mom to buy new crayons, notebooks, pencils and the other necessities to begin school in the fall.

It was something about the unused, undisturbed, colorful objects that were mine… that were going to help me succeed that year. Not because they made me better at my school work, but because of how they made me feel!

I loved new school supplies!

 I have yet to see one in real life, maybe one day I can go to Larimer Square in Denver and see several artists all in one weekend! Definately adding that trip to the bucket list!
