I don’t know what it is about that one extra day, but I just can’t sit still on a long weekend, especially Labor Day weekend. A road trip or a home improvement task or craft project that I would never consider squeezing into a normal two-day weekend now seems totally doable. This weekend my boyfriend and I are packing up the car and taking one last summer-style road trip to D.C. to visit some friends. With that being said, I’m dubbing myself an official Holiday Road Trip Warrior. (I’m really liking that road map pendant light. A lot. Perhaps I could multitask, boyfriend drives while I craft…)

    I am afraid my "to-do" list is quickly outgrowing the long weekend! Needless to say, I am sticking close to home.

    The garage cleaning and reorganization of camping/canoeing gear can can wait one more weekend just before fall weather comes in. It's Labor Day Weekend. Everyone enjoy and be safe! :D

    I'm definitely a holiday road trip warrior. I'll cram as much as I can into my week just to take that weekend trip.
