Hey guys! We’re back with another podcast… this time we talk about gratitude.
What are we grateful for? What are we grateful for overcoming? What are we grateful to have on our horizons?
During our holiday party we ran off to the side to record a quick podcast together and reflect on the things we are grateful for.
We are joined by Cindy, our other Cindy, Dri, Nahjeera, Jonathan, and me- Eliza!
Check it out and let us know what you’re grateful for!
