So, why Peas in Progress?
Something we’ve dreamed of doing together since we got married has been to write a book about our journey to, “here.” This podcast is the beginning of that dream.
Coming full circle in many ways, we’ve faced challenges most people wouldn’t experience in a lifetime. Since moving to Colorado a little over a year ago, we’ve really gotten the opportunity to get to know ourselves & one another through challenges and what seems to be a life in transition.
Now, with the current social & political climate, we decided it is time we rise up & share our stories. Stories of pain, joy, and confusion are ones most of us can relate to, and we want to elaborate on what we’ve learned over this short, action-packed journey we’ve been on together... so far.
You’re going to hear about our personal backgrounds, how our relationship works, our experiences with racism and justice, what it’s like to go through personal transformation, and so much more. That means we’ll probably be making some of you fairly uncomfortable with our candidness & openness on various taboo topics. While we’re not “experts” by any means, we bring our professional and real-life experiences to the table.
Please know that we don’t believe there’s a point in this journey where we’ve fully arrived. We’re always learning, always growing, and always continuing to seek ways in which we can be better stewards of ourselves and the world around us.
That’s why we’re called Peas in Progress, because life is a process.
We’re not perfect individually, and neither is our marriage. Don’t let pretty pictures of us on social media fool you -- that goes for anyone you’re “following” for that matter. Nothing is as it seems, and honestly, there’s probably a lot going on behind closed doors than most of us like to admit.
With this podcast, we hope to inspire you and others to see that love is real and that we don’t have to accept things the way they are just because, “that’s how it’s always been.” We’re drawing the line in the sand as hope for others to hold onto, and we hope you come back again & again to learn with us.
