We shared a tongue-in-cheek guide to writing to advice columns for this month's letter writing series. We also shared both books about mail and mail about books, and, for those of you who thinking mail is for the birds- we always have this post of feathery-fine stationary!
Number one on this month's Why Don't You... List was to start a new job, and that's exactly what I've been busy with! For those of you out of the loop, I took a position teaching gifted and talented elementary students; there were a few weeks of prep and meetings, then I welcome kids into my classroom last week. That may be why the beautiful except from this month's Dog Eared Page rang so especially true for me. Just because I love my new job doesn't mean there's not a daydream or two about summer still lingering, especially when oohing and aahing over the Continental looks showcased by these Americans-in-Rome with the film Three Coins in the Fountain. And as busy as things have been, we can tell they are about to rev up more, so Thanks September, and here's to you October with your Harvest events, Halloween and Homecoming Games.
