For many families, the past few weeks have been all about going back to school.  With backpacks and lunch boxes and colored pencils in hand, we embark upon the promise of a new school year.  Whether you held the hand of a scared kindergartner or loaded up a teen’s most prized possessions for the trip to college, starting school is a sure sign that summer is ending and fall is just around the corner.  Formerly carefree evenings must now be shared with homework, studying and (sadly, for the kids in my house) bedtimes.

glassybaby have become the gift of choice for teachers and school administrators that have had a special impact on my children and their education.  Each gift is accompanied by a note of gratitude and an explanation of why the color was chosen especially for them.  This year we decided not to wait for the end of the year or for teacher appreciation week.  Instead of an apple or flowers, my son chose to gift his teachers with a vibrant, lime green glassybaby and this message:  “Thank you for the great year that lies ahead.”  The glassybaby color choice:  ‘imagine’.  To purchase ‘imagine’, click here.

Happy back to school!  Here’s to the promise of a new school year:  discovery, growth and learning around every corner.
