Although we technically have almost three weeks left, Labor Day is considered the last official day of summer here in the states. And as sad as that makes this summer girl, I have a special place in my heart for this day, because it serves as a great reminder to me to get outside and enjoy one of the final days of the beautiful summer weather in all its glory. Truthfully, it's been a mix of cloudy/rainy and brutally warm in the Chicago area for the last week - but I'll take gray, wet, hot days over the cold, dark, and painfully short days of winter any time.
I'm also a fan of Labor Day because of what it stands for - a day to recognize and celebrate the social and economic accomplishments and contributions of American workers by giving us a day off of work. Admittedly, a lot of people don't get to have the day off anymore (and that's no fun), but I still appreciate the premise behind it. As I said in my 'life lesson' post last week, making the time to enjoy life outside of work has become one of my greatest priorities. So for those of you working, I hope that you have a little time to relax and enjoy the rest of the day once you're done. I'm gonna miss you, summertime.
