You know those people that are so full of life and easy to be around that you just feel lighter after spending time with them? That’s my neighbor Tina. And dang it, I miss her! We talk a lot in this episode about what it has done to our friendship to be on opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to sheltering in place. You’re going to love her and her stories about the foot she was going to use for Christmas and the finger she lost in menopause.
You can find Tina @themightydandelion on instagram. The story behind this name and Tina’s bloom where you are planted theory is this: The dandelion has grit, grows with just a little piece of dirt, rain, and a bit of sunshine. The mighty dandelion can bloom just about anywhere! Then, just when you think its life is finished; the seeds fly all over the world and begin again. Just like us. We are dandelions too. And we are MIGHTY.
