ESSENCE Poll: How Will You Be Spending Your Memorial Day Weekend?

Comments
I recall when one client told me her date took her to his family reunion and everyone asked when they were getting married. (#fail) No reunions, cousin’s cookouts, visits to Big Mama’s house, and Lord, please, no funerals. Yes, I’ve heard of first dates happening here.

Summertime is upon us and Memorial Day weekend is the kick-off!

Although the season doesn't officially start for another month or so, this weekend is a clear indication that we're moving on from a brutal winter and towards longer days and warmer nights. The pools are open, the grill is heating up and we can finally break out those summer clothes. 

Whether it's getting out of town, preparing your stomach for multiple cookouts or gearing up to shop for memorial day deals, we want to know what you're up to! What are your plans for this Memorial Day weekend?
