Hey, everyone. Today is Labor Day here in America, a holiday originally created to celebrate America's workforce. In more recent years, it's more of an "End of Summer" event. Whether you're enjoying a cookout with friends, spending time at the beach or poolside, camping with your family, or just relaxing, I hope you enjoy the … Continue reading Labor Day
The "official" day was yesterday, but this is a Monday holiday here in America. Whether you're attending a parade, having a barbecue, going to a fireworks show, or just staying home, I hope you enjoy the day.

It's been a rough year with unprecedented happenings. Maybe this Christmas season will be different for you. (I know it is for me.) Many of us won't be celebrating with family.

I was on vacation last week, or rather “staycation.” We didn’t even do a day trip, but I enjoyed relaxing at home. It’s … Continue reading Blogging and Writing
