I was born and raised in Richmond, VA and back to school was always the day after Labor Day.
I always looked forward to the 1st day back and then by the 2nd day was ready for summer again. The excitement was over pretty fast. I think the build up of getting new clothes, new supplies, and telling myself that I would be more organized and apply myself was what made it all so great. I never had a problem waking up for the 1st day and would get dressed and go downstairs to eat a big breakfast. That of course would slowly dwindle away as the days passed. I would end up getting out of bed 5 minutes before I had to leave, throw something on, and run out the door. Oh well. Nothing like the 1st day.
Since it is officially the 1st week of school I decided to pick up some new things just for old times sake.......

And Last but not least.....a new outfit. I always wore a dress to school on the 1st day (no reason...just always did). This one might be a bit short especially with heels but since I am a grown up now I can get away with it. Then I can go out after for drinks to celebrate a fabulous 1st day.

Did you have any 1st day of school traditions when you were growing up? Were you excited to go back to school after a long hot summer or did you dread it?
