    About Eryn:  I'm Eryn also known as Pumpkin to some.  In past lives I've been a professional baker, trauma counselor, parent educator, non-profit worker and advocate.  In my current life, I'm a mom by way of adoption to three incredible home-schooled kiddos, wife to an amazing man, podcast co-host and work from home entrepreneur.  It's my hope for you that this podcast, space and community is a place that inspires freedom with less, wellness, and self-love.

    About Heather: A little bit about me....In my former life I worked for a large commercial real estate company for many years.  I did everything from analytical work to training employees to managing a help desk team! I am so grateful for that time in my life.  I'm a wife to the best guy and mama to two awesome kids. I love to talk. Talking with friends over food and wine is just about my favorite thing and always has been (well, except for the wine part).  I am an on-again-off again cross fitter, lover of the mountains and ocean, podcast junkie, and bookworm.  Doing this podcast lights me up, and it's so much fun to get to do this with one of my favorite people on the planet (that's you Eryn!).

    Stephanie is a mom to many- mainly two tiny adorable humans but as you'll hear she also considers her pets- a dog, and 2 indoor pigs- her children as well. Stephanie shares about a hard time for her child and for her family. We discuss the importance of open communication with children and having honest dialogue. We also discuss the importance of therapy and doing what is best to help our kiddos and ourselves heal. Listen to the end when Stephanie flips the script and makes me answer HER ending question first. While this conversation touches on hard subjects, you'll see that as friends we can still have a good time too. I hope you enjoy listening in on this conversation and I hope that you hear us both when we say therapy is the best.

    Stephanie is:

    Watching- This is Us

    Reading- Are You There Vodka? It's me Chelsea

    Loving- being a parent to her children, pets, and plants!

    Eating- well in her case, drinking, Starbucks. Stephanie used to be a barista & her and her husband are the most frequent Starbucks drinkers I know. Starbucks in Knightdale, listen for your shout out because they all know her, very well.
