It’s rare for us to be in town for a whole weekend, let alone a long weekend.
But this Labor Day, we made a deliberate decision to avoid the traffic, avoid the mountain crowds, and avoid the stress of planning a trip. We stayed home, and it was just what the doctor ordered.
We accomplished some longstanding to-do’s, and also found there were plenty of adventures to be had, right in our own town.

More carpentry! Havin’ a little too much fun with the nail gun while helping build a friend’s fence in exchange for some delicious bbq and camaraderie.
Ok, this one is kind of a cheat because it happened on Tuesday, but there’s something to be said for rounding out a great weekend at home with a sweet “Appalachian Soul” concert at a local dive bar with friends.
