Labor Day is on its way!
This holiday weekend is about taking a much needed break from working all year round. We, Americans, are workaholics and sometimes we forget to take time for ourselves to reenergize and destress from all the pressure we have from our jobs. With the hints of fall just around the corner, the seasonably temperate days filled with fluffy clouds and bright sunlight will make you want to take advantage of the break to come with these activities below!
Spend the day shopping for the freshest fruits and veggies, produced locally by your neighborhood farmer’s market. There are always those great vendors with the lavender scented soap and cider doughnuts. Try not to spend all your money in one place!
Gather your family together for a backyard barbecue. You can even check our other blog for tips on how to throw the best cookout in town! It covers everything from what decorations to use, to the items to put on the menu items, to even what options you have for entertainment.

The only way to have a picnic in the park is to do it the old fashioned way: with a brown woven basket full of pre-cut sandwiches with chips and watermelon, a Gingham picnic blanket, and your closest friends (oh and don’t forget the bug repellent)!
Yard Sale Spree
Go from neighborhood to neighborhood in search the best yard sales. You can make a day out of finding some of the gems people are willing to give away, and even try your hand at haggling! One man’s trash is another man’s treasure– there is more truth in that statement than you think.
Take a day trip to a big city you’ve never be to before, and do every touristy thing the city has to offer. It’ll be an action packed weekend, so don’t plan on sleeping until you get home! Do something you’ve never done before, because every good memory begins with “Hey, remember that time we…”
