Back-to-school means it’s time for new routines, but wouldn’t you love to have a fun girls’ night in to celebrate the changing of the seasons? Why not make time? There are all sorts of things to do with girlfriends, whether they’re long-time besties or new acquaintances. You might simply get together for a satisfying gab session and catch up on each other’s lives, but if you’d like to add an activity, here are a few of my favorite girls’ night in ideas:
