Brown Paper Bags

I was staring at my fridge yesterday and rummaging through my pantry looking for something to put together for lunch. I ended up making peanut butter and jelly on crackers (pb and j on saltines instead of bread). I used to have this for lunch all the time when I was younger. It made me think back to a time when my wonderful mother packed my lunch every single day of school, from kindergarten to 12th grade. That is a lot of lunches. A lot of thermoses of milk and juice boxes, sandwiches with the crusts cut off, mini dole peach cups, egg salad, carrot sticks, cookies and jello.

And a lot of brown paper bags with my name written on every single one of them.

One day I hope to do this for my kids. Thank you mom!
