Dirt Road Adventures-Girls Beach Trip and More

Happy Sunday, and welcome to Dirt Road Adventures – Hearts & Flowers, where we review all the exciting events behind the scenes, on the website, and the sources of inspiration I discovered online during the past week. This weekly recap ensures you don’t miss any of our adventures.

This past week was filled with ideas for entertaining and DIY projects to help get geared up for Fall.

In addition, I headed to the beach for a fun girl’s beach trip.

We are having the best time shopping and dining around the Wilmington area.

As with most trips, there has been so much laughter and reminiscing about all the fun times we’ve had over the years.

Importance of Girlfriend Time

Planning time away from your regular routine is so important.

I feel it’s essential for women to nurture themselves with girlfriend time.

I’ve read many studies that believe women need other supportive women in their lives. It is true that women who have girlfriends they socialize with regularly are mentally and physically healthier. 


In fact the Mayo Clinic has a list of friendship benefits which include
* Reduced Stress
*Improved self confidence
*Increased happiness, sense of belonging and purpose
*Help you cope with traumas, such as serious illness, death, job loss and divorce.
