Friendships Revisited

For the month of July, I focused on Friendship for My Happiness Project. I wanted to make friendship a priority in my life, something that has been difficult since the birth of my children.

I emailed her inquiring about doing a giveaway for her newest book, Happier at Home…never thinking in a million years that I would even hear back, let alone get a positive response from Gretchen herself!
