1. Galentine's Day: Celebrating Female Friendships and Joy in Midlife - Ep. 89 Tish & Ellen 32:57

Every year, as  February's chill begins to thaw for Ellen in California and Tish in South Carolina, we are reminded of the warmth found in the company of good friends—especially during Galentine's Day on February 13th which is a day to celebrate the remarkable women who make our Midlife a little brighter. 

This episode wraps you in the comfort, much like Tish's latest obsession, a snug white fleece blanket ideal for cool spring nights.  And Ellen chats about her obsession – the laugh-out-loud moments provided by an adult coloring book that melts stress away, and give a shout-out to friends like Ellen, whose thoughtful acts are rays of sunshine on a cloudy day.

For Galentines Day, Ellen shares her top pick  books on friendship which include the deep friendship narratives of “Firefly Lane” and “The Villa,” a book set in the 70s in an European villa, two books that perfectly encapsulate the journey of female friendships across the tapestry of time.

Come along as we share on our own Galentine's traditions (or future plans), whether it's a simple text or a festive bash, and uncover the secrets behind Laura Pauli's legendary Phenomenal Woman parties.  And for Tish, it's about celebrating the 'too much woman' in all of us, and cherishing our girl tribes in every creative way we can muster—so set your finest plates, choose a Moving poem, and let's feast on the joys of camaraderie and support.
