In this episode, we reflect on what we would tell our 20, 25, and 30 year old selves. From prioritizing community, to no longer "suffocating from the shoulds," and extending grace to ourselves for the journey we're on, this is a discussion to which we hope many of you can connect and relate.

This is the Salt & Vinegar popcorn we mention. SO STINKING good.
A pic of us with our dear friend and future Bonus Mom, Brit. We mention her in the show for being a BOSS and such a huge help to us throughout this podcast endeavor. Oh, and this is the gorgeous patio/ivy wall we reference- isn't she a beaut?!
Mere has been digging the Head to Heart Podcast with Christa and Luke Gifford (@spirituallysexy / @masterheart.luke / @headtoheartpodcast on Instagram). It’s a podcast detailing their faith and marital journey (and how they came back stronger than ever after infidelity). The podcast episode Mere references is Episode 11 (she thinks…) Overall, she finds Head to Heart a really interesting listen with authentic (sometimes downright ballsy) conversation between this married duo.
Nic mentions the Liturgist podcast in reference to deconstruction of faith. Nic has found the topics and conversations on this podcast particularly interesting, thoughtful, and insightful during her own deconstruction journey.
What Nic is digging: Amazon Smile! If you order through this URL when you place a qualifying purchase, you can benefit a charity of your choice! WHAT A GREAT WAY TO SHOP AND GIVE BACK AT THE EXACT SAME TIME! Now THERE'S a reason to smile. #sorry #hadto
Also, any other HP lovers in the house?! Even after living with Nicole for four years, Mere JUST learned that Nicole reads all of the Harry Potter books every fall. We may need to do an episode on Harry Potter to honor Nic and her move to London.....
Ok. Moving right along. Remember the gal who told her client her kids "aren't that cute" ? This is her! Wendy Mogel, parenting expert and guest on the Armchair Expert podcast (hosted by Dax Shepherd). She looks too gentle to have told someone her kids weren't cute. Oh to live in such freedom...
Lastly, Mere recommends this restaurateur, yogi, business badass, and down-to-earth British gal, Ella Woodward, with whom Nic ABSOLUTELY MUST become bffs when she moves to London. I (Mere) act like I know the woman when really I'm just a BIG FAN. Her recipes and cookbooks and other endeavors are GORGEOUS people. Check this gem of a human out.
