Labor Day is nearly here. For many, myself included, Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer. Here in Michigan, Labor Day is the last day before school starts. It is followed by cooler temperatures, fall storms, the changing of leaves… My family throws a big party to celebrate Labor Day Weekend, but once that passes I am finally ready to embrace the slow arrival of fall. To be honest, fall is quite possibly my favorite season, I just wish it didn’t mean that winter is on it’s way.
Anyhow, before I move onto fall projects I want to share one last summer DIY. Not to say that this has to be a summer project, but our American Flag always feels like summer to me. It brings to mind Memorial Day, Labor Day, and of course, the Fourth of July. Obviously it has a much deeper meaning and signifies so many important things, but it also makes me think of fireworks, hot dogs, family cookouts and late nights around the bonfire.
