Have you ever done a trip with your in-laws? Maybe that sparks shivers down your spine? Ha ha ha kidding. I’m so grateful for great in-laws and to being able to laugh with them! (That’s not saying we haven’t had to work through times that were less than smooth-sailing! That’s normal, too! And our friendships and love for each other have increased.)
We’ve had some new additions with brothers getting married, and we had a great time this past week, on a much-needed girls’ trip. It’s been 8 years since we’ve done one, and it was so much fun.
Are there some people in your life that you want to strengthen your relationship with? Send a text to meet up for lunch, sneak away on a little trip if you can, or hang out at your house for a game night after kids are in bed! Relationships are something worth investing time into, and healthy relationships can benefit your health in many ways, especially mentally! ♡
