About 5 years ago I moved into my neighborhood. We liked that the house was near family and that it had a courtyard. What we did NOT know was that I was about to meet some of my closest friends- my new neighbors! Throughout the years we have had countless events ranging from very meaningful to remarkably silly. we have laughed, cried and everything in between.
This girl is just so much fun! She led out and started something years ago the rest of us (and the rest of her neighborhood) "meant" to do and just never found the time for. Well, once Kristin prioritized hospitality and getting to know her neighbors, lives started being impacted in a big way. You're going to learn so many practical hospitality tips that prove, once again, that having people over doesn't have to freak you out. Friendly warning: you're probably going to want a picnic table at the end of this episode.
Christy is a mom I met several years ago. Since then she has continued to be a source of encouragement and wisdom to me. She has two older daughters and I love asking her questions about what I need to expect here in the next couple years. You're really going to be encouraged to keep a realistic perspective on the shenanigans your kids are up to. I know I was!
Laura is a mom of 5 through birth, adoption, and fostering. She's an artist from Nashville (because that's where the artistic people are, right?) and I wanted to talk to her because of the amazing way I see her love her community with her kids. She's got some important wisdom regarding simplifying kindness and doing few things really well.
