    backpacks and back to school
    always makes me feel a little bittersweet,
    like this old song called “Try to Remember”
    about a time in September
    and it’s so melancholy and tinged with goodbye
    and also with new beginnings and adventure
    and smells like green apples and little snickers bars:)
    I love it all……awesome backpacks….my kids would’ve loved:)
