2020 Midyear Check In & Backyard Junk
Back when 2020 was shiny and full of hope we shared our intentions for the year. Today we're checking in to see how those intentions have shaped our lives. We also share what we're recommitting to, what we're letting go, and what's helping us to reclaim this year that has felt so out of our control.We also want to let you know that we've decided to skip the book club episode on The Giver of Stars that we had planned to do this summer. Book club episodes takes a little more preparation and we're needing to keep things simple right now. We would still highly recommend reading or listening to the book.Mentioned on the show:Profit FirstBeyond the Bright SeaSomersaults snacks Connect with us on Instagram at @higirlsnextdoor and on Facebook.Sign up for our newsletter and see show notes on our website: girlnextdoorpodcast.comWe love to get your emails: higirlsnextdoor@gmail.comYour reviews on Apple Podcasts really help the show - thank you!
