Last year I put together a Summer Fun (G)uide for Adults – 42 Ways to Enjoy the Season and it was a blast having a list to stretch myself and not do the same old same old. This year, I’m making a year-long list as a way to encourage me (and everyone else) to be intentional about building fun into our lives.
