It's Fall, Y'all!
It’s my favorite time of year. School is back in session! It’s been a few years since I’ve been in school, but I can still smell the sharpened pencils and the mystery meat lunch special.

I remember the anticipation, anxiety, and excitement of the first day of school. Read more about back to school.
