Welcome to my new podcast - Auntie Nelly’s House! I’m so excited to share this podcast with you during this different and difficult time, 1. Because I miss you & I miss talking to people. 2. I wanted you to come over and sit in my living room by the fire or gather around my kitchen island for a cup of tea, but you can’t right now. So basically, I’ve mic’d myself up & decided to do the next best thing: ask everyone I know to virtually come over to Auntie Nelly’s house for a little conversation & connection. I’m so glad you’re here.
