Happy Friday, Y'all! Labor Day weekend is a special time in my family because it's when we celebrate my daughter's birthday. Sidney is turning 5 this year, and we're planning a mermaid-themed swim celebration with close family at our home. There is rain in the forecast, so just like what we've already been experiencing in 2020, we'll likely be reverting to our back-up plan!
I hope you and your loved ones have a relaxing and meaningful Labor Day weekend. Looking for some ideas for fun? Keep reading! If you happen to need a new appliance, this is a great weekend to take advantage of Labor Day sales as well!

Labor Day Weekend looks a bit different this year, especially with many beloved events canceled due to the pandemic. But, all is not lost, my friends! There are still many ways to celebrate this holiday weekend.
Labor Day is all about kickin’ back and relaxing, and I am ready to do just that! With some safe social distancing, these fun ideas below are the perfect way to end this hot and crazy summer on a rested, high note!
Level-up your backyard cookout.
Can you ever really go wrong with a Labor Day cookout? I think not. Delicious food and backyard fun with family and friends is always a good time. But this year, try spicing up your cookout with a ramped-up menu! I love these new recipe ideas
from Brit & Co. The pineapple pulled pork tacos and mango salsa? Say no more.
Spend the afternoon at a brewpub.
The great thing about most brewpubs is that they are usually already set-up with lots of outdoor space to social distance, so you can safely enjoy some tasty grub and drinks outside of your home. Austin surely has no shortage of cool brewpubs worth discovering, so check out this list
to take your pick!
Take a hike and sleep under the stars.
Feel like you’ve been stuck inside too long? Now’s the ideal time to get outdoors. There are tons of beautiful hiking spots in our area, and many of them have excellent camping grounds as well. So if you want to enjoy the three-day weekend channeling your outdoorsy side, take a look at one of these must-see nearby spots.
Austin & Central Texas Market Report H1 2020
COVID-19 brought a brief slow down to the Austin residential real estate market earlier this year, but it quickly rebounded and with a vengeance. It’s been a notably busy summer with Austin remaining a

Compass agents are experts on the intricacies of Austin and its surrounding areas. The importance of being guided by an agent with deep market knowledge and expertise on every street, neighborhood and community is more essential now than ever before.
