Fave Five: Back to (pre)School!

Fall is in the air! I absolutely love this time of year & I’ve recently started being a little more intentional with N’s activities throughout the week.

The original idea was an attempt to “hold on to [her] daughters’ childhoods” as she discarded/gave away/donated old books & memorabilia and I think I can empathize with that feeling.
