Balancing act

Life lately

Sarah’s kids are now using her childhood bunk beds.

Abby gave herself a new spring look by cutting bangs into her hair.

Reading lately


Sarah listened to An American Marriage by Tayari Jones, which follows the marriage of Roy and Celestial before, during, and after Roy’s wrongful incarceration.

Abby loved Beartown by Frederick Backman, a novel about a small Swedish hockey town.


We chat about how we define balance, if our lives are balanced now, whether we feel over-scheduled, and favorite resources for getting back on track if we’ve gotten off balance. Listeners, we’d love to hear how you find the right balance in your life.

Eating lately

Abby is making her own chocolate mousse.

Sarah is eating whole chickpeas (gasp!), as part of a chickpea salad.
