Figuring out Female Friendships
Welcome to Whine & Wine
Why do female friendships often seem to take so much work?
Are we doing this to ourselves with incorrect assumptions, over-scheduling, or putting too much weight on social media?
Or, are we just expecting too much from each other?
If there is one thing that all women have in common, it is having to fight each and every day for something. Turning on each other in the midst of that fight is, well, not great.
Instead:What if we lifted each other up? What if we stopped examining our interactions with a magnifying glass?
We also chat about boundaries, permission to say "no," growth via accountability, and getting back to in-person moments.
Kathy's Thought for the Episode: You can straighten another woman's crown without telling everyone.
Take a trip down relationship lane with us on this episode of Whine & Whine.
Spoiler alert: This is an epiphany-free podcast.

A Podcast in Progress
Did we just invite you to our planning meeting? Um. Yes.
Welcome to Whine & Wine - the "In Progress" episode.
When I printed my new business cards last year, I added "Podcaster" to my skill set in an effort to totally overshoot my abilities. I mean, it might have worked if:
a) I knew where the Podcast App was located
b) I knew anything at all about recording a podcast
c) I had a partner who knew anything at all about recording a podcast
Who better to engage than Kathy Crowley - a longtime friend who I had not spoken to in nearly a decade? Kathy Crowley - who also had no idea how to make a podcast. After a few months of "are we really doing this?" we opted to just push record and see what happened.
This podcast is what happened.
