I love the movie You’ve Got Mail. It is such a sweet film filled with glorious sets (don’t you just want to live in the Shop Around the Corner?! and her apartment!) and really fabulous lines. This quote by Tom Hanks as Joe Fox has stuck with me for years as one of my all-time favorite Fall quotes. He begins with “Don’t you love New York in the Fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies… I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.” With so many students going back to school this week, I thought this was a good quote to share. Regardless of whether or not you are heeding the toll of the school bell, I hope you enjoy this ‘virtual’ bouquet of newly sharpened pencils and are able to enjoy these last few moments of yet another golden summer.
