    #167 - How to Make the Perfect Playlist

    Did y’all know I really dig playlists? Like so much. And I’ve been told, especially after my holiday playlists last year and my quarantine groove playlist this summer, that I’m really good at them. I will agree with you. This is not a space I choose to be overly humble. I learned from the best.
    Helpful Companion Links Playlists I’m proud of: nine curated Christmas playlists plus my Quarantine Groove list for the summer. My sister Hannah makes seasonal playlists for our patrons over on our Patreon show The Lazy Sisters. My buddy Bri McKoy is also a bomb playlist maker. Check her out on Instagram. Here’s my profile on Spotify for easy access. Download a transcript of this episode.

Refreshing, funny, relate able, and inspirational

Kendra is fun and relate able, while also being practical and inspirational. I love when she simplifies common things with a tiny perspective shift or bosses me around with the correct order to do things. She has brilliant ideas, but also gets that she doesn’t live our life and encourages us to figure what works well in our own life. She helps us ask the right questions. I can just hear her saying, “You do you and if this doesn’t work that’s cool. I’m not your boss, but seriously though, YOU NEED to try a laundry day.”

Not everyone has a real life friend with good advice

But Kendra is one of those people. I found Kendra almost a year ago through an article on TheKitchn.com and I’ve been hooked every since. We are in different stages of life as far as kids go, but she still gives great strategies for all sorts of things. And her recipes are awesome. She does have a book coming out next week and I can’t wait to get it.

Lazy genius for life

Kendra’s podcast has brought so much freedom to my life. Freedom to decide what matters & what doesn’t. I love so much of her content, and her dinner queue method of meal planning has relieved so much stress in my life. I’m so thankful to have found her show!
