In the latest episode from the Happy Hour series, we chat with Stacey Freeman. We are missing spending time socializing with girlfriends during this crazy COVID time, so we created this series to have a reason to chat with our friends, and we’re letting you listen in! Grab your drink of choice and join us as we talk about frivolous stuff, hard stuff, and everything in between.
