Key Quotes:


“We’ve talked about it a couple times this year, we have been inspired by Gretchen Rubin and Liz Craft of the Happier Podcast and have created 19 for 2019 lists. The point of doing one of these lists is to make a vision for your year, and have something hopefully to look back on and celebrate all that you made happen in your life. It’s a great way to bring a little bit more intentionality to your year, which happens to be the ‘word of the year’ that Peg has selected, intention, and I have selected recreation, because I need to get more intentional about my downtime, and frankly, have more fun. Ironically, our word of the year seems to be the thing the other person is good at. So I am trying to be like Peg more, embrace adventure and take advantage of time to recharge. “ – Jenny  

“At some point in a woman’s life, she just gets tired of being ashamed all the time. After that, she is free to become whoever she truly is.” -Peggy quoting Elizabeth Gilbert from her new book: City of Girls.
