In this special Thanksgiving episode, we chat about how we have tried to have an Attitude of Gratitude in 2019 even with the curveball we were thrown at the beginning of the year. We are thankful for each other, our families, our jobs and our new son, Lincoln. We hope to continue having an Attitude of Gratitude into 2020 no matter what life throws at us.

EP 58: Connecting To A City
We are lucky to live in the great city of Austin, Texas. People often ask us about Austin so we decided to dedicate an episode to the city. But the episode turned into one about how to get connected in a new city after speaking to a friend who is struggling to connect with people after moving away from Austin. This episode more than anything is about connection and moving towards something rather than away from something. What We Talked About In This Episode: We’ve been wanting to do an episode about Austin because we love our city and people ask us about it all the time We moved to Austin at different times We both found a way to get connected We are not music people or outdoorsy people or ACL or SXSW people We are not your typical weird Austinites, but we love the community here A friend just moved to a new city and is having trouble making friends We talk about how to get acquainted to a new city How we got connected in Austin Moving toward something rather than running away The overall theme of the episode Connection We are need to be in a place where we are connected We don't connect enough with poeple anymore
