Happy Labor Day!

Only a few more hours until summer’s last long weekend commences! Whether you’ll be lounging on the beach or vegging in front of a Law and Order: SVU, perhaps give a thought to how much working conditions have improved in this country. Labor Day came about in 1894, after the Pullman Strike drew attention to unfair practices. At its peak, the strike involved 250,000 workers. After it was over, President Cleveland made labor and union related issues top priority; the first Labor Day was celebrated 6 days after the strike ended.

OK, history lesson over! Where are you headed this weekend? Let us know in the comments section! If you’re not going anywhere, soak in some dreamy pictures of destination, close your eyes and imagine yourself there for a minute. Give yourself a special treat this weekend, like a massage, or some me time to catch up on your favorite trashy novel.

Get your beachside pool lounging going on at The Blue Diamond Riviera Maya in Cancun, Mexico

Now that’s what I call glamping! These luxury tends are at the Hintok River Camp at Hellfire Pass, Thailand (along the River Kwai)

Perhaps a preppy New England in and some wild dunes on Block Island are more your speed? Photo from The Inn at Old Harbor

The Sea Ranch Lodge in California is very high up on my bucket list; I’m not sure why I haven’t made it there yet! Could this room be any groovier?

Well my friends, I’ll be sweatin’ it out in Atlanta over the long weekend, so please share your dream destinations with me, I could use a little pick-me-up!
