Happy Hour Time

Happy Labor Day Weekend, which we all know means a three-day weekend! Light up the grill, cook some delicious hamburgers or BBQ, have a cold drink, and enjoy the last official weekend of summer! 

“You have a unique gift to offer this world. Be true to yourself, be kind to yourself, read and learn about everything that interests you, and keep away from people who bring you down. When you treat yourself kindly and respect the uniqueness of those around you, you will be giving this world an amazing gift…YOU!
~Dr. Steve Maraboli

  1. That drink looks good, but I'm not one for a strong drink! I'm more of a wine girl myself! Happy labor day weekend!
    Sincerely, Sara

    1. I'm more of a white wine girl and I love prosecco, but I really like a cocktail every now and then, they are so much fun!

  2. What a great end of the summer drink... that gin could get me in some trouble though.... haha!

    1. Haha gin does have that tendency with a lot of people! I can't believe this is the last official weekend of summer! Hope you have a great Labor Day Weekend!

  3. That cocktail sounds delish! Happy Valentine's Day!
