    A *Real* Love Story... Imperfect & All | ft. My Parents

    A *Real* Love Story... Imperfect & All | ft. My Parents

    After Lee & I discussed our break up, I thought it would be helpful to hear from two people who have been together for 30 years, my sweet parents. They bring us through their journey together starting at a nightclub. We listen to how they've moved through difficult times, come to accept the other person's flaws and continue choosing each other every day. This is a *real* love story... imperfect & all.

Learn how having a deep passion for something can push you to your limits -like making 150 Youtube videos before making money- but ultimately, keep you going to achieve your goals and explore the world.

    Why We Broke Up & How is Quarantine Together? | ft. Lee Asher

    Why We Broke Up & How is Quarantine Together? | ft. Lee Asher

    Lee and I broke up a few months ago and we've been taking that time to work on ourselves separately to heal & grow as individuals. Since making the decision to quarantine together, we have been communicating things with each other that we never did while dating. We're learning how to talk more, be more effective when we do, & so much more. This week we share what lead to the break up, what we've learned since, & how we made the decision to isolate together in the first place. I hope you find this insightful, maybe helpful, & definitely raw.

Not about vanlife

There are a handful of episodes that provide valuable information about vanlife. Even the mental health focused ones can be helpful to anyone starting out. Unfortunately most of the rest are just this girl talking about herself, her relationships, and her friendships. There’s an entire episode where it’s just her arguing with her boyfriend and another one where she spends way too much time talking about haters. Maybe that’s appealing and “real” to some people but I had to turn it off.

Love

Thank you for being so raw, honest and an advocate for mental health. I still regret not going up to say hi to you when I went to see the Asher house. Hope to get the chance to talk to you again! I’ve never wanted to get into the van life more.
