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…)
