I’m crawling out from the rock I’ve been under for the past, well, for all of 2013. LOL.
Just this past week I turned in my book, Pleasing the Pirate, to my editor and wow, I feel like a 335 page book has been lifted from my shoulders.
I really have no more words left in me right now and considering it’s Labor Day weekend I’m sure you all are standing around the grill enjoying summer’s last gasp. So today I will leave you with some Labor Day trivia.
Have a fun day!!!
-The first Labor Day parade to be held in the USA was on September 5, 1882 in New York City
-Grover Cleveland was the US President who signed the bill making it a national holiday
-Peter McGuire – founder of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America–is credited with first proposing the idea of Labor Day as a national holiday in 1882
