The sun is setting on another summer, and the long lazy days are fading into the rush of our autumn schedules. It seems fitting that the season ends with the Labor Day three-day weekend, when we can steal away an extra day of travel fun before settling into the routine of school, work, and extracurricular activities. So how did you use your extra time this Labor Day?
Time to Plan Our Next Adventure
Since so many people can’t think “summer” without thinking “vacation,” we may think the coming of autumn means the end of our travel time. But don’t forget – Columbus Day is just next month, giving us another long weekend for fun and adventure. We should make the most of these opportunities for travel – written right into the calendar – all year long. What’s the best way to use and enjoy our three-day weekends? That’s what we’re talking about during our special Labor Day Twitter party.
Let’s take an hour to chat about best practices. Should you plan every minute to make the most of your long weekend? Is a short spontaneous vacation the way to go? Should you make it a three day learning experience, or a day trip to a fun attraction? How far should you go on a road trip? How much is too much when it comes to packing for a short jaunt? We’ll talk about it all – and maybe even share some summer memories – at the next party.
To kick it off, I’ll share my personal Labor Day secret – we always do our summer vacation at the Jersey shore the week heading into the Labor Day holiday. That way, I have that extra Monday to recover, settle in, and get all that laundry done before we have to hit the ground running at work and school on Tuesday.
Now what’s your secret? Please share over at #TMOM as the summer comes to an end this Monday. After all, we have plans to make!
