Confession: I am a little bit jealous of the little ones, the college kids and the lovely teachers out there who are preparing to start school. Even though I’ve been out of school for a while, I still get butterflies about the exciting things to come this time of year. I also get the itch to buy new school supplies. These days, I keep a grown-up back-to-school wishlist to suit my whims.
Something about freshly sharpened pencils and a new notebook makes me feel like a kid again. At the very least, new desk accessories always inspire me to straighten up my desk. (Am I alone in this?!) I’ve got zero plans to go back to school anytime soon, but here are a few things that would definitely spruce up my office. What’s on your grown-up back-to-school wishlist? // susannah
