This weekend here in the states is Labor Day weekend; first recognized in 1894 and every first Monday in September since. It is a federal holiday which means a lot of us get the day off with pay; a three day weekend! Woot! It is meant to celebrate the economic and social contributions of workers. It also sadly marks the unofficial end of summer.
I’m not quite ready to give up summer yet and have no idea what we are going to do this weekend other than eat some traditional summer foods like barbeque, potato salad and slaw with some peach ice cream for desert. But truth be told, I’d rather be at the beach like I was when these pictures were taken at Manchester by the Sea, Massachusetts (more about that lovely town in a future post). Have a great weekend everyone and be careful if you are driving or boating.
