Kristin & Laura-79.jpg

Hi we're Kristin and Laura!

We've been best friends since college and the best part is that our husbands are also best friends! NOBODY tells you that once you're married it is super hard to find "couple" best friends. We're talking about the friends where all four of you get along super well. Well enough that you want to go on road trips together and start crazy projects like a podcast.

We've seen each other struggle through deaths of loved ones, infertility, cancer and big changes like moves across the country.

We love to catch up each Tuesday and talk about how we can live life with more purpose, creativity and joy. We wanted to share our conversations and hopefully help you, yes you lovely person reading this, progress. We give each other plenty of support and encouragement along the way and will always remind you to do the same!


Kristin + Kenny and the twins

I’m Kristin, I live in Utah with my husband Kenny and our delightful, rambunctious twin toddlers, Elizabeth & Will.

I grew up in Utah but spent three years in California while Kenny was in law school. I loved it there (the weather, the coast, Disneyland!) but I’m so happy to be back home. I didn’t know how much I’d miss the mountains until I left them!

It took almost five years to get our babies here — after waiting so long and through the wonders of IVF, I was beyond grateful to become pregnant and jumpstart our family with two at once in 2015. I adore being a mom. It’s everything I ever dreamed it would be and more.

Besides working on this podcast (which is pretty much my dream job), I work as a photographer, a studio manager for a local videographer, and an office manager for my dad’s company. Luckily most of my work is done from home during nap times so I have plenty of mom-time too.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned so far in life, it’s that it’s possible to find contentment no matter your circumstances. I have found that life is most satisfying when you’re growing and evolving, in good times and bad.

I love reading, organizing, yoga, cookies, and really good TV. My two dreams are to write a book and to spend my summers living in the English countryside with my family.


Laura + Bryce and a love fern

Hey it’s me Laura! I currently live in Long Island, New York with my husband Bryce and our little Love Fern...which is just a nice big green plant that’s easy to take care of.

My husband and I are avid hikers who love anything adventurous outdoors. One day we’d love to be living in a tiny home on a mountain peak by a lake. Oh and a few kiddos, hiking dog and cow or llama would be an added bonus! But so far we’ve learned to enjoy wherever we live and learn from whatever life throws at us.

We traded mountains for sky scrapers while we lived in New York City for four years. Bryce was attending dental school and I became a nanny to an incredible family. With encouragement from family and friends I somehow found time to start my small business as a children’s photographer and piano teacher.

Life slowed down once I was diagnosed with a cancer called Lymphoma. I went through Chemotherapy treatments and thankfully was able to slowly recover from the hardest six months of my life. I’ve learned that life is way too short to not be with those you love and do what you love.

I currently run my small business, take walks on the beach with my husband looking for sea glass, Facetime my nieces and nephews and work on this podcast with the lovely Kristin Brown...Oh and sleep, I love to sleep!

Was that too much to read?
