Labor Day

Labor Day always marks the end of summer for me . . . (yes, I know the official end of summer comes on Sept. 21 with the Autumn Equinox) but for me Labor Day is the end of summer.  When I was growing up in Ohio we always started school the Tuesday after Labor Day, and it is the same here in Virginia.  It's a bittersweet moment . . . knowing that the alarm clocks will go off early tomorrow and the bustle of the school year will begin.  Our lazy, hazy days will recede into memory. 

For this blog, it will become more difficult to keep that beach feeling with me as Autumn rolls around.  I will just have to take some time out of my day to play some Jimmy Buffett, pour a Margarita, and pretend there is sand between my toes.


  1. Ditto! We can dream of beaches in crisp fall weather!
