Episode 64: Trying Easier

trying easier

To everything there is a season.

So simple, so true, and finally our podcast is also broken up into seasons too. When we looked back at the episodes we have done, springtime has naturally marked the end of our first 3 seasons.

I’m so lucky to have a creative partner who I can speak openly to about wanting to take a break — and even luckier that she felt the same way.

It’s easy to put a lot of pressure on our creativity, but we have both felt what it’s like to be on our game, and lately (with both of us moving and dealing with difficult things), it’s been hard.

Taking a break now, and busting into Season 4 later this summer is better for all of us, and we’re so excited to reunite, get inspired, and get brainstorming.

So long, Season 3, it’s been a slice.

Episode 63: Living Life When Things Get Hard

Living Life When Hard Things Happen >> Guinea Pigging Green

Hello friends,

Today on the show we’re talking about how to live life while you’re experiencing something difficult. You can listen to the episode using the player below or by subscribing to us on iTunes.

In the episode, Laura shares how her family has been going through a hard time during the last few weeks. Our conversation is about ideas and perspectives that we have found helpful in our lives whenever we are experiencing something tough.

Some helpful resources we mention in the show:

This is a personal episode, and we both realized that hard things are hard to talk about. But we also think it’s so important to get things out into the open and talk about the issues that don’t get discussed as much as they should. We appreciate you listening very, very much.



Episode 62: Time Tracking


What have you been doing for the last 15 minutes?


This week on the podcast, we discuss our latest experiment; Steph and I committed to tracking an entire week in 15 minute increments (inspired – as we often are – by a book. In this case, Laura Vanderkam’s 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think). Some of the results were quite surprising!
