labor day weekend

at Yosemite National Park – too afraid to let go of the railing

Labor Day is Monday, September 5th, and for many of us that means a glorious 3 day weekend is ahead!

According to the Department of Labor, Labor Day is a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.  So cheers to you working women and men!  How are we going to celebrate?  I’ve got some ideas…

Shopping!  Who doesn’t love a good sale?  And there will be no shortage of stores having them.  Grab some girlfriends for a morning brunch, then hit up your favorite stores for some retail therapy.  News outlets are already reporting on sales to come, and stay tuned for a Juniper Lemons labor day sales post!

Hike.  Fall is sneaking up on us fast, so enjoy what’s left of summer by getting out in the nature.  Not sure where to go walk around?  Check out All Trails for some ideas!  Simply enter a city, park, or trail name and voila – happy trails!

Picnic.  Similar to the hiking option, but a bit less athletic.  Step 1: go to Trader Joe’s and load up on cheese, salami, grapes, wine, and a baguette.  Step 2: load the items in a cute picnic basket (because presentation matters) with any necessary utensils, cups, and napkins.  Step 3:  gather your family, friends, and/or dog and find a sunny spot with a view and let the celebrating begin.

BBQ.  The quintessential summer gathering.  Whether hosting at your home or meeting up in a park, BBQs are the best.  I can almost smell the chicken, burgers, and corn on the grill.  Call some friends and fire it up!

Have a great long weekend!
