Lauren and Kamel are awesome!

Their conversations are so relatable and honest. I started reading her blog after it was recommended on another blog, then they started a podcast. So great!

I love listening this podcast. Whether Lauren and Kamel are talking child bedtimes, budgets, travel or anything in between, I enjoy their banter and advice. I feel like they are endearing, thoughtful friends, having a chat with my in my living room. Keep up the amazing podcasting.
