Father’s Day has us thinking about our dads- what they’ve taught us, shown us, and embedded deep into our psyches.

Laura, Raquel & Shira share some of their best memories of their incredible dads and some favorite lessons learned along the way. Continue reading “Our Best Dad Memories”
Since last time we were in this space together, we’ve been feeling tired. Like really, exhausted, candle-at-both-ends, biting our tongues, sending ourselves to our rooms kind of tired. Right after a piece we wrote about self-care, you say? Hello irony, our old friend….
