Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

As I mentioned last week, I started a new job a few days ago. And I love it! But that’s not what I want to talk about here.

I used to love this time of year. Why? For the “Back to School” shopping of course! New clothes, new pencils and notebooks—I loved it all.

So, I did go shopping for some new clothes last weekend and it felt so good. I felt like a kid again mixing and matching all of my different options. I even laid them out the night before my first day.

The icing on the cake was finding all sorts of new office supplies on my new desk when I arrived for work the first day. Pens and notebooks and Post Its, oh my!

Yep, it’s the little things.

I’ll stop blathering on—there are so many cool things to do in Detroit this weekend. Get out there and enjoy it!
