Back to school is finally here! 

Whether you are a student, a parent, or just an innocent bystander, it is always an exciting time of year. I love the idea of fresh starts, new books, and clean spiral notebooks. It is the kick off to my favorite time of year—fall. 

To celebrate the new school year I am giving away a $25 Target gift card and $10 Starbucks gift card to one lucky reader so they can shop and caffeinate their way into the new school year.

Giveaway ends Saturday August 13th at 3pm PST.

Winner will be announced on Sunday August 14th at 6pm PST.

  3. My favorite part is shopping for school supplies.

  4. My favorite part is getting to go shopping with my kids one on one. It's fun to see how their tastes change (or stay the same) year after year. Plus to them it feels less like a chore and more of an adventure so they're willing to try things on!

  5. My favorite part of kids going back to school is that the zoo and usual toddler friendly places will no longer be overruled with big kids!

  6. I love seeing my son excited for a new year and new experience. Now that he's in high school it will be a change. I love that my daughter will be going to preschool and that she will learn even more! And as a teacher I love that my year round kids will be at school more now that their friends will be back in school.
