Summer’s Fleeting Rays

August 29, 2018

With Labor Day fast approaching, so is the end of summer.  It is easy to let Labor Day weekend pass by without planning anything.  All around you can see posts about the “Top Labor Day Destinations” but then you have to fight the travel jam and all the crowds.  It is only three days after all.



On the other hand, the kids are going back to school and this is the last opportunity for some family time until November.  Those to-do lists are long, but they will get done despite some play.




This Labor Day, get out and explore your local region.  Whether you decide to go on a hike, make a camp fire and roast s’mores, enjoy outdoor music, or go pick fruit, the options are endless.  By staying close to home, you are able to get much of those list items done while still squeezing in those final sunshine rays.  





This coming holiday weekend will pose as a great challenge for myself.  As I must admit I am longing for fall.  The cool crisp air, the beautiful colors, and who could mention fall without correlating pumpkin doughnuts?!  




 Ok, ok, I’ve snapped back from my daydream (well evening dream)!  Although maybe not all the way, as all I have in mind right now is baking an apple caramel galette.  Maybe I should quit while I’m ahead!  




 Do not be like me.  Summer enjoys a great final moment, to not just pitter out due to the allure of a new season.  Dare to make memories!




Oh darlings, adventure ahead!
