If it’s been said once, it’s been said a million times- 2020 was a dumpster fire of unprecedented times. In this episode, the Okayest Moms are reflecting on 2020 by breaking down the most memorable year in our lifetime. We talk about everything from starting our podcast on the brink of a pandemic, how it has affected our business, how our mental health has faired throughout the never-ending emotional rollercoaster, the political landscape of the year, as well as how our relationships changed.
WHAT TO LISTEN FOR: Reflecting on 2020
- The many good things that came from this year (really, there are tons!)
- How our business has shifted in light of this year
- Mom guilt
- The things we continue to struggle with
- Our struggles to keep the faith in humanity and believe there is plenty of good out there
OUR PODCAST SPONSOR
This episode was sponsored by Regency Centers.
Shopping in 2020 is a whole new experience. I’m leaving the house way more than I was in the Spring, but shopping is still a big day out on the town. It’s basically the only time I get dressed anymore and put on a real pair of pants. I’m still only doing half a face of makeup though since I’m wearing my mask. So, if you’re looking for a big day out in the East Bay, we recommend Persimmon Place in Dublin.
Persimmon Place features retailers such as Whole Foods, Sur La Table, Ethan Allen, and Nordstrom Rack. You can get your shopping done then relax in the spacious outdoor patios and integrated seating areas.
We love that they’ve considered sustainability as part of their model including solar panels and windmills help reduce the center’s overall energy consumption.

Tracie Carroll says
As a registered nurse who’s been working in two emergency rooms (one of which is one of the hardest hit in California) thank you! Taking care of COVID positive patients and seeing the surges, as well as how many people are “anti-mask,” I’m so appreciative of you two using your platform to share your views. It’s scary times. I’m terrified of bringing this virus home to my family. It’s enough to make anyone feel like they’re losing their minds. Again, thank you. I love being able to escape in your pod cast for a while.
Tracie, thank you so much for your kind words but you deserve all the thanks. Thank you for your sacrifice and all you do!
