So far, Brittany has managed to avoid this part of her life altogether…

This episode was a very happy surprise as it wasn’t planned at all! It turned out to be a very vulnerable chat that we allowed to take us where our emotions wanted to go (or grow, if you will...).

We think it’s safe to say we’ve all been at a point in our lives where we aren’t sure what direction to go, what will fulfill us the most, or what the right thing to do is.

We love these multi-topic “chit chat” episodes!! It’s a way for us to talk about WHATEVER comes to our brains on the day of recording and that is so fun for us.
