Hello, friends!  Thanks for coming by!


Here we are…. Labor Day!
The “final” day of summer with fall’s official arrival in a mere 17 days. 

As you look back on your summer… was it a good one?  Or did it seem to zoom in and zoom out?

Tomorrow is the first day of school in my neck of the woods.  I know, some of you have been in the throes of of back-to-school for a good month.  But for those of you who are struggling to get your head out of summer and back in the routine, I think you’re going be inspired by some pretty creative back-to-school ideas from last week’s Project Inspire{d}.  After linking up at the party, be sure to grab a beverage and sit down for some fabulous inspiration.   Be prepared to fill up your Pinterest board with all these clever and creative ideas!

I needed its loving, healing balm on the day after.
