Hi From Carissa

August 30, 2019

Happy Friday Richmond friends! Labor Day weekend, wow, that went fast! NO denying that we will be seeing pumpkins and costumes in the stores in a second! UGH! I am determined to maximize this weekend, maybe some beach/pool time and some picnics along with way. I will not be buying any school supplies, we did sneakers this week- I am done!  Are you guys ready? I know many are back already and I hope you are all getting acclimated to the schedules!  We have some really great articles this week including back to school printables and some fun dates you don't want to miss in September. Wishing everyone a safe and happy back to school week. 

This picture is after we went to FEE DAY and got registered for school! We have some great articles for you this week and a packed calendar of family fun in Richmond! Wishing you all a safe and happy Labor Day weekend. Make the most out of the beautiful weather headed our way!

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. ~Herm Albright, quoted in Reader's Digest, June 1995

If you don't get everything you want, think of the things you don't get that you don't want. ~Oscar Wilde

Find something you love to do, and you'll never have to work a day in your life.~Harvey Mackay
