This Peach Cherry Smoothie Bowl is so summery it’ll have your tastebuds rocking shades and a mean bikini.
If you follow me on social media you might have seen me talk about how I was recently interviewed on Jenn and Hayley’s amazing podcast, Happiness Hour.
Interview might not be the right word because it felt much more like a long, deep, soul filling, conversation shared amongst old friends. The crazy part is, I’ve never met Jenn or Hayley in person, but I felt like I’d known them for years. They’re two kindred souls who have created a pretty spectacular podcast on conversations around happiness.
I’ve been a fan of both Jenn and Hayley for a while. I’m not quite sure how I stumbled across Jenn’s design work, but it’s totally stunning. From there, I remember seeing Jenn post about redesigning Hayley’s site. I then dove into that amazing rabbit hole. As a podcast junkie, when I saw that Jenn and Hayley had teamed up to create a podcast about happiness and raw, real conversations I was instantly a groupie.
The first episode I listened to was all about relationships. I immediately emailed Jenn after, to let her know how much her stories resonated with me. I won’t go into much detail, but their advice helped me close a door that didn’t serve me and open a new one that’s pretty spectacular. Subsequent episodes have had me throwing up metaphorical emoji preach hands, gasping out loud and running to my journal to take notes.
I was already a fan girl of Happiness Hour Podcast, so…
…when Jenn asked me if I’d be interested in being a guest I almost pooped myself with excitement. Normally I think I would have been nervous to be on an hour long podcast delving into sedative topics like recovering from anorexia and disordered eating, but I felt so safe in their hands.
This year especially has been truly transformational. I made some big changes earlier this year that have lead to incredible personal growth. While I considered myself recovered for the most part after college, this year I feel more free from old thoughts and behaviors than ever. It was exciting to talk about the joys of finding your identity after recovery. How relationships have blossomed, and my creativity has developed since becoming more of myself.
Jenn and Hayley had such amazing insights and stories to share. I think this conversation could be beneficial to anyone who’s struggled with disordered eating, depression, anxiety or even anyone who’s curious about what it’s like to go through any of those things.
To everyone who’s already listened and reached out with your kind words I couldn’t be more grateful. This communities openness, support and desire to become the best versions of ourselves together is humbling.
