5.8.16 - Who knew 10 years ago two small town pageant girls would be sitting down together one day to talk about motherhood and the relentless pursuit of honoring our teenage dreams despite all the sharp twists and turns of life? In this special Mother's Day episode, I get to sit down with the indelible Lauren Halcik (author of Monogrammed Mischief) and learn all about her last decade from promising opera singer to young mom, wife, feminist, business woman, and now, homeschool "crunchy" mom extraordinaire. Lauren's story proves that throughout all the detours of life, with enough grit, love, and determination, the road may always rise up to meet you.
