I’m still here, my friends

Hi! It’s me. I’m still here. First of all, thanks for being here. I know it’s been a minute since I’ve posted anything on the blog or podcast. I’m so happy to be releasing a new podcast episode and had a lot of fun chatting with my Texan-Bavarian guest. However, I felt like I needed […]
