    Hello!

    I’ve been a quiet listener for several of your episodes, and I feel like this episode is fate for me. I received Rituals for Living – Dreambook + Planner for Christmas, and I am excited to get to know and learn more about Peter and Briana. Thank you so much for sharing.

    xo, Carrie
