  1. Maria…I can totally identify with your comment about Podcasts. I would love to be able to listen but after a very short time, I can’t focus. I really think it has to do with my learning style. I learn best when I see how to do something and actively participate rather than reading directions. I love to read  but listening to someone else read a novel or an adult book is next to impossible for me. 
    Josh…I am soooo ready for football. I live in New England and we have been beyond fortunate for so many years to have the  G.O.A.T but we all know that the end is coming and these last couple of years will be so precious and really need to be savored. Go PATS!!!

  2. hey y’all- great list! Maria that purse is so cute! And those dresses are so pretty! Have fun in Cali!

  3. I listen to the Bokd New Mom podcast with Judy Moore and absolutely love it! She trained under Brooke Castillo, and refers to her often. I will have to check out Brooke’s podcast too!
