lovely labor day reads :: bridget’s favorite books

labor day reads1

For most people Labor Day probably means a day on the lake or beach or maybe a big barbecue with family and friends. My family will be coming over for dinner but it won’t be a big shin-dig. We might make some ice cream and play some board games (because we’re wild and crazy like that). But the thing I look forward to the most on holidays like Labor Day is that we don’t have to get up and start {Read More}
