As a follow-up to last week’s episode talking about love, today’s special guest (and the first that has joined me so far on the podcast!) is none other than my very own husband, Jon!
In this episode, we take a look back at how we met and the ways that our relationship has evolved through the years, including the struggles we’ve faced and how we’ve both learned to communicate and have our words heard by each other, and not the emotions.
Whatever point you and your partner are at in your own relationship journey, we hope what we share today about love and authentic communication helps you, and we would both be so happy to hear what part of this conversation resonated the most.

Until next time, keep on practicing and keep on being authentic and brave!
