To Working Women Who Play on Labor Day Weekend

Where the Wild Things Play! On Labor Day Weekend

An Open Letter to Our Adventurous Sisterhood

Labor Day… is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. —U.S. Department of Labor

Here’s to the women who put in 40 to 60 hours a week earning a living, supporting their children, making a difference in their community and changing the world for the better. Here’s to the doctors, teachers, nurses, firefighters, store clerks, line-workers, CEO’s, river guides, SAH moms, farmers and all of the women workers who are true change-makers in this country and around the world.

We, the founders of She Explores Life, celebrate you. The strong, smart women we meet and learn about every day constantly amaze us. The way you work to exhaustion and then find a way to summon the energy to chase your passions— whether they are found in the woods; on the water; overseas; in your kitchen; on the yoga mat; or while painting, writing and snapping photos— leaves us in awe.

We are proud to be part of this tribe: a community of women bound by a love for adventure, the courage to push boundaries and our thirst for exploration. A community of women who have the audacity to believe that our stories, skills and knowledge has value in the travel and adventure industries—and who are ready to claim our space.

May this weekend find you on the trials, beside cascading waterfalls, scaling rock walls, snapping photos in a new destination, or doing anything that fills you up and feeds your soul.

We all of our sisters-in-adventure and exploration the best on this Labor Day weekend.

Now go out there and find your adventure! Then tell us about it
