This is our episode about puppies. Not just one puppy. A basket FULL of puppies. Everyone loves puppies, right? Oh, yeah...and the two Staceys...but no one likes them.

Life has its fill of defining moments. Some (well, most) you just can't control. And it seems they can either break you down or build you up, but either way you end up with a tale to tell. This is the story of a morning that startled a sleeping mom and altered a daughter's life.

September 28, 2021

Everyone's story begins a little bit the same way, yet all of them are remarkably different. From the very start, the way we come into the world becomes part of the story our parents tell about us. In this week's episode, we explore three birth stories trying to outdo the other. Featuring a sweet conversation of life, loss, and "framily" with our lifelong friend, Lori.

2021 Ep.07 - Camping

August 17, 2021

Tents, campers, campgrounds, skits, and s'mores around the campfire. In another life, it seems, these were signs of summer. And almost all of them were accompanied by lifelong family friends Harry and Barb, their boys Steve and Kevin, and Biscuit the family dog.  Join us as we recount the fun (and sometimes not-so-fun) memories of camping trips gone by. And then, stayed tuned as we introduce you to "Uncle" Harry.
