Labor Day Weekend Adventure

Myriad Botanical Gardens

Labor Day Adventure

Stroll through a wooded park in the heart of the city.

Watch the sun set below a meandering blue river.

Take advantage of the last few drops of summer, focusing on the present moment and not on what comes next.

Labor Day Weekend serves as a transitory time, a time when summer begins to fade into fall, the season we once knew giving way to something fresh. This is when we reflect and relax together, gearing up for what’s next on the journey ahead.

By all these lovely tokens September days are here, with summer’s best of weather and autumn’s best of cheer.– Helen Hunt Jackson

This Time Around

Sometimes it’s important to work for that pot of gold. But other times it’s essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow.– Douglas Pagels
