Finding your people is a continuous, evolving process. 

 

In this episode, Jill and Nick paint a clear picture on how they define their “kind of people."  Making friends, keeping friends, letting go of friends can be a complex and somewhat challenging experience.

Time is the most precious, non-refundable gift we will ever receive.

More time as a couple, time with Lucille, time as a family, time to be, to rest, to explore, and to create.
