It sneaks up on me every year, and this year is no exception: the first day of school is almost here. I realized just the other day that the kids will be back at school in just a couple of weeks. Where did the summer go?
I was all set to start stressing about back-to-school shopping when my daughter asked if she could go on a last-minute trip to Gulf Shores & Orange Beach with one of her friends and her friend’s family. Her main motivation for wanting to go (besides, of course, going to the beach): shopping.
I certainly don’t blame her for wanting to do her shopping down there. Between the various shopping locations like SanRoc Cay, The Wharf, and the Tanger Outlet Center, she should be able to find some fun new fashions to start the school year—and have fun in the process.
I’m a little jealous, actually. I love shopping in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach. Maybe I could convince my husband to take one more quick summer trip to the Gulf—if I promise that I’ll do the shopping while he plays golf, I think I can sell the idea. And the tax-free weekend is coming up on August 6th and 7th. Sounds like a good time for some Gulf shopping to me!
