no. 2 pencils - watercolor (print here)
I love pencils. Not mechanical pencils -- for some reason they are like fingernails on a chalkboard to me -- but good old-fashioned, yellow, No. 2 pencils. And I have them everywhere: on the coffee table, scattered around my desk, hiding at the bottom of every bag, in my car... They are classic.
These pencils also remind me of the anticipation and preparation that went into starting a new school year. School clothes shopping, book bags, new supplies, volleyball practice. And a fresh start. I still miss that feeling and it has me thinking that maybe I should sign up for a class this fall. If I do, you can bet my No. 2 pencils will definitely go with me.
It would be a good excuse to get some new school clothes too...
