Things to Do in Frederick MD This Weekend
I don’t know about you, but getting myself back ‘out there’ after the past several years we’ve endured, has been so refreshing and enjoyable!
Recently, a Harvard study was published, indicating that one of the major keys to long-lasting happiness and well-being is strong relationships:
“One thing instead became irrefutable: strong relationships most accurately predicted people’s happiness throughout their lives. They are “intrinsic to everything we do and everything we are,” the authors write.”Fortune.com
So, why not take advantage of all the opportunities for getting out and about with some friends to enjoy all the fun things as well as family-friendly events that Frederick has to offer.
