I am trying something new today on the podcast.
I am sharing my first episode in what I am going to call my "mini disruptions" (I may change this, haha!)

It's frustrating when your clothes no longer fit!
For many, trying on clothes...

I did not know the questions ahead of time.
Before we dive into the questions, my guest Amanda and I do a deep dive into her new found joy in Tiktok and how she found a community of people (the "new coming out" lesbians community) that she can relate to. It's helped her to learn more about the community and herself as a late coming out lesbian.
Then we dive into the 20 questions.
I share what I've learned about being a wife, my biggest fears, my biggest...
In today's episode, I'm introducing a new series that you will be see throughout Season 2 where I share inspirational women and their lessons in life.
