Hello Again! We are coming back.
Hello friends! Hang on a minute while we wipe the cobwebs off our studio just a bit... Seriously though, we are happy to be back on the mics. Well on the mics for this show that is. Let's kick things off with a little conversation about buisness and growing pains, and lessons we are still learning along the way. Take a listen wherever you are, whatever you are doing, and share your thoughts with us también.
I enjoy your show… it’s nice to listen to people who are like myself and my family. My husband and I joke around so much sometimes I am not sure if he is pulling my piñata or telling the truth. But despite all of that… we have mad love for each other.
Looking forward to your next episode.
Let him finish his sentence please…
I can listen anymore, I have kids here and they don’t need to hear her foul language.
Great for when you’re making breakfast
Especially now that we’re quarantined and I have limited interaction with other adults, I love listening to this podcast and eavesdropping on Angelica and Juan’s conversation. It makes me feel like I’m at Starbucks and the couple next to me is having an awesome conversation that I want to jump into. Highly recommend!
