Social Activities

This year I am participating in Gretchen Rubin’s Happiness Project Experience. Each month has a theme and she posts resources to help you set goals and achieve them. April was all about friendships so I tried to be intentional about making plans with people I love to be around. Most of the plans involved going out somehow. My budget struggled a bit but my heart is very happy.

Here are some of the things I did with friends to foster deeper relationships.
