Today was all about building relationships.
Also, the beach. Because summer.
1. I got to hang out with a girl in my writers group who's new to RI and not yet been to the beach on a summer day. We were able to learn each other's stories.
2. There's something we say at Sanctuary about the types of topics and conversations we have in our home groups: "We go there." Today, "we went there," one of my earliest RI friends and me. I think we bonded in a new way, and I'm really thankful for the time we had to talk!
3. Thanks to technology--namely, snap chat and smart phones, I was able to hang out with my friend's 4 year old daughter and not be completely awkward. Victory!
plus, we now have a collection of really cute photos.
