The Best Labor Day Sales + Weekend Reading

 photo IMG_5373_zpsxob5kkfc.jpg

I honestly forgot that Labor Day was this weekend until a couple of days ago. Funny how time flies – and how Monday holidays lose meaning when you work for yourself. Whoops. Safe to say I don't have plans. Labor Day is a big one up here for tourism, so I'll likely be laying low and working on some projects in and around the house with a short kayak excursion planned for Sunday. This week ended on a high note, with coffee and breakfast at Tandem with Jill of Better, Happier St. Sebastian. She and I worked together at Free People at the same time, and it was great to see her and talk freelance, blogging, etc. Actually, I didn't quite realize how much I needed some connection with another creative person – especially another creative woman. I have a particularly bad habit of sequestering myself and not straying from my routine - something I'd like to get better at. Anyway, what are you up to this weekend? Sharing a few of the sales I'll be shopping and links from the week below. Enjoy it, friends.
