Emma: Yeah, and we had been taking a look at all of the dates and stuff, and you already know, we began in 2019, like a short while earlier than the pandemic. And when you concentrate on it in these phrases, I’m similar to, life has been so totally different. A lot has occurred on the earth and in our lives. I imply, what number of homes have we owned since we began this? I don’t know, it’s cool. 

Elsie: Greater than three?

Emma: Lower than 200, however yeah, I don’t know. We didn’t actually have like lots of massive plans. Once we began it, I really feel like most issues, we had been like, let’s simply do it like a yr or two I used to be like, we must always do a podcast. We must always do a podcast, after which I don’t actually really feel like we knew the place we had been going with it. We’ve simply been going. You already know what I imply? 

Elsie: True. I don’t know. I nonetheless really feel that manner. I imply, I loved doing it and I feel it’s been lots of enjoyable.

It’s positively extra of a bestie podcast, you already know what I imply? Like we’re not like up a pleasant finding out or something like that. 

Emma: Yeah. I really feel like now our podcast is what our weblog was once extra like again within the day ’trigger it was once there weren’t as many platforms as once we began running a blog 15 years in the past, 16 years in the past, no matter it was. I don’t know if there have been podcasts and if there have been positively wasn’t on my radar but. I didn’t even actually know easy methods to use my iPhone, you already know? So the world has modified. We didn’t actually have social media. So I feel like now I consider our podcast as like the best way to do private tales and private connections. And our weblog is extra the place the place we do like educating stuff, like a cocktail recipe that we’re most likely gonna discuss on this podcast. However the recipe is on the weblog, you already know what I imply? So, I like this outlet for that cause. And I additionally simply actually just like the longer type. I’ve by no means felt like I actually can say something on social media ’trigger it simply feels all actually quick and I’m simply positively an extended type individual. I feel that’s why I like running a blog and why I like podcasting.

Elsie: Yeah, longer type individual, that’s a t-shirt that we are able to put on.

Emma: And it has to wrap round the place you may’t even learn it. 

Elsie: Okay. So we’re gonna discuss a bit bit about our grandma transferring into the pink home, which has occurred, and thanks for all, We obtained so many messages and feedback from people who find themselves supporting and it was actually candy. So it’s been a really candy time for our household. However earlier than we chat about that, I have to put out the official name for October Ghost Tales.

You’ve gotten a one-week deadline from the time that this episode airs to ship us yours, and if you happen to’re a bit bit late, that’s nice too. However we have to have a deadline as a result of right here’s the factor, these tales take an unlimited period of time.

So, please ship us your ghost tales. So I’m gonna let you know what we’re on the lookout for particularly, if you happen to’re a brand new listener otherwise you haven’t heard one among these episodes, we often do it each October.

Emma: I don’t assume anybody’s mad if we’re like reducing out one paragraph. I feel folks get it. There’s solely a lot time we’re doing all of the tales, you already know, it’s cool. 

Elsie: Yeah. That is the opposite factor, don’t make your story too quick. I wanna hear each element that you just keep in mind, or that you just’ve heard, or that you already know, like each little sensory element. That’s the good things. So don’t simply be like, I noticed a person standing within the nook after which like, finish your story there. Describe each a part of it.

Ship us these ghost tales and we’ll do an episode, We’ve finished two earlier than I feel we’ll attempt to make it only one, however we’ll see what number of tales we obtain this yr, however that can be in October.

Emma: So anyway, grandma’s Pink Home. Sure. So in a earlier episode, simply in case anybody doesn’t know, Elsie shared how our grandma Norma, who’s our dad’s mom, is transferring into her pink home, which is like in her neighborhood. It was a home that Elsie and her household went to for the vacations whereas they lived in Nashville. However now that they lived in Springfield, she’s type of empty. So Grandma moved in and she or he used to reside 45 minutes to an hour away from our hometown Springfield in a city known as Buffalo. So it was just a bit bit tougher to see her, particularly within the winter when it’s like icy. And we additionally, she’s getting older and so it’s good that she’s nearer as a result of she’s gonna drive much less and simply be on the town and that’s actually comforting. So anyway, I’ll inform mine ’trigger it’s pretty quick. I’ve solely gone over there as soon as since she moved in, which as of recording, was simply final week, however I took Oscar after daycare, and we went over there for about an hour and a half. And what I did was, which I feel was a parenting mistake, I assumed I used to be so good, however I used to be not. I used to be like, I knew she would have just a few toys and issues, however I didn’t actually know if she would have lots of stuff that he can be taken with. And I actually needed him to get pleasure from her home and to be excited to come back again and for it to be a spot that he’s like wanting. It’s type of tough with toddlers, you by no means know in the event that they’re gonna refuse to hug somebody if you go away, issues like that. And it’s nice, it’s no massive deal. However you already know, I used to be simply making an attempt, so I used to be like, all proper, I’m gonna get these Paw Patrol toys, and he can open them once we get to grandma’s home. He didn’t know I had ’em and I open ’em at grandma’s home and the toys are gonna keep at grandma’s home. And so we obtained to grandma’s home and he obtained to open them and he was so excited. He loves Paw Patrol. After which my mistake although was, that when we had been leaving the home, he actually needed to take the toys with him. And I used to be like, no, they’re gonna keep at grandma’s and once we come again, we’ll get the toys once more, they’re gonna be at grandma’s each time we come. We will play with the Paw Patrol toys. But it surely was an enormous meltdown. I feel it was additionally getting near his bedtime and he refused to hug her, you already know, and didn’t wanna say goodbye. And I used to be simply carrying him out the door. And he’s nonetheless screaming a bit bit like a toddler. That wasn’t what I hoped for, nevertheless it was nonetheless a very good go to and also you had been proper. It smells like grandma in there. All her artwork from once we had been rising up, like in her home is now in that home and it does really feel like her home, like she has her chairs that we grew up with. She has lots of stuff that she preferred once we had been youngsters and she or he nonetheless has it. So it felt very nostalgic to me, and it additionally simply actually felt like an outdated woman lives right here. Yeah. Earlier than it felt extra like an acute Airbnb. I beloved it. And Oscar had a good time, he simply had a bit meltdown on the finish, however he’s two, in order that’s what life’s like. So I’m excited to take him over there, although much more this fall. So I’m actually comfortable that she’s moved.

Elsie: Yeah, it’s been actually magical. Now we have been over there type of always and it’s been great. Jeremy’s like helped her determine easy methods to, so, okay, that is her. She’s 89 years outdated and that is her first time to have web within the residence ever. Which is so like bizarre and funky. So she has discovered easy methods to watch Homicide She Wrote. Which is superb. Like one of many best, 90’s period reveals. And she or he discovered this different lawyer present, so all the things goes so nicely. She’s made me like so many containers of like my stuff that she didn’t need in there and like, so we’re all like, supported now. And yeah, she like walked with me to choose up the children from college someday. It’s been great. So we really feel like extraordinarily, extraordinarily fortunate and grateful and like, it’s simply the proper state of affairs for our household. 

Emma: Yep. In order that’s the replace on the pink home. 

Elsie: Sure. Yeah. I’m excited subsequent for Halloween as a result of we’ve type of warned her, however our neighborhood is just like the Halloween neighborhood. After which there’s three streets which can be like the primary streets, and she or he’s on the center avenue, so she’s on one of many important, important streets.

Emma: We must always simply purchase her lots of sweet. 

Elsie: Yeah. We positively have to assist her prep and assist her embellish and Yeah. However I’m excited. I feel she’ll be very energized by how the neighborhood’s very invested in Halloween. 

Emma: She loves youngsters. Clearly, she loves her grandkids and her great-grandkids, however you already know, youngsters are all enjoyable, and yeah, youngsters in costumes are simply magic. So I feel she’s gonna find it irresistible. Yeah, we must always purchase her a complete bunch of sweet. So she has sufficient. ’trigger she most likely gained’t have a superb idea of that as a result of it’s rather a lot. You want rather a lot as a result of it’s just like the neighborhood. 

Elsie: Sure. Cute. Okay, so that is our two hundredth episode. So we’re gonna discuss by way of a bunch of nostalgic issues. We don’t take lots of time in our profession to similar to, and replicate, and it’s one thing that I’ve all the time been weak at. And we’ve got not too long ago been making an attempt a bit bit extra, however, so that is like good for us. So the very first thing I had down was how podcasting has modified me. I feel that that is such an fascinating query as a result of, Emma needed to begin a podcast for years earlier than we did it, and I used to be extraordinarily resistant. I didn’t assume I might do it, and I didn’t assume I’d be good at it, and I assumed I might hate it, and I assumed folks can be imply, and it has been type of like the alternative expertise of what I anticipated it to be. It’s been essentially the most out of all the things we’ve ever finished, social media, running a blog, you already know, no matter else. I really feel like every little little bit of web influencer that we’ve finished, you already know what I imply? So that you identify it, we’ve tried it, besides for regardless of the new one’s known as that I’m not doing.

Emma: Threads. Yeah. I used to be like, TikTok Threads. What New factor? 

Elsie: The brand new one. TikTok. 

Emma: Be actual. 

Elsie: Okay. So I really feel just like the factor that has modified about me is that earlier than we began, I couldn’t actually discuss lengthy type with out being actually insecure or actually getting upset with myself. I obtained actually upset once we needed to do like reside interviews, even taped interviews, type of something. I needed to be on a podcast, sadly, I don’t do it that a lot anymore and I feel I might be manner higher at it now. It helped with that. It helped me learn to like sit back and similar to discuss extra candidly. I feel I’ve developed a giant kind of like arduous shell from all the a few years of like web trolls and imply little and issues like that, you already know? However truthfully, like our podcast expertise is much more peaceable than the remainder of the web experiences we’ve had. In order that’s what modified me. What about you? 

Emma: Yeah, I feel I felt related in that I positively haven’t skilled the identical stage of on-line bullying that you’ve got. Like for no matter cause, Elsie, in her complete life, not even simply the web, however as a child.

Elsie: The pink aura. 

Emma: Oh, is that what it’s? Yeah. You all the time simply have gotten extra bullied than me. And it doesn’t actually make any sense ’trigger we’re truly actually related and we’re additionally sisters and we grew up, you already know what I imply? It simply doesn’t make sense. However you’ve all the time gotten a lot greater than me, the web included. So I don’t assume I had the identical stage of shell, however I additionally assume my intuition isn’t as a lot to share my private life on the web as yours. Like each time we each began running a blog, we initially blogged individually. We had two totally different websites. Elsie had a fantastic mess, however I had my very own meals weblog and that’s simply it to me it was a meals weblog, like I used to be simply doing recipes, issues I used to be cooking. It wasn’t that I used to be hiding my private life. I might discuss if I made one thing for my boyfriend or no matter, prefer it by no means felt like I used to be hiding it simply isn’t my intuition to share rather a lot about myself on the web and generally in actual life too. I’m simply type of non-public, however I feel I’m additionally like, I simply assume my life isn’t fascinating, to be trustworthy. So anyway, I really feel just like the podcast has been a spot the place our readers and listeners have gotten to know me in a manner that I don’t assume they might’ve gotten to on the weblog, or if you happen to solely learn the weblog otherwise you solely observe us on Instagram, I don’t assume you already know me in the best way that our podcast listeners do. And that’s actually significant to me. I don’t know what it means to everybody else, nevertheless it means rather a lot to me as a result of it’s good to be identified. It feels actually good. And you already know, it’s the web. I clearly actually like figuring out folks in actual life as nicely, and I’ve my complete help system in that manner. However it is rather significant and good to have folks have an interest, and like, I don’t know, ask me questions on issues I’ve talked about on the podcast, like lengthy, you already know, episodes, months in the past folks will ship emails and it’s simply very nice. It feels good. 

Elsie: Yeah. That’s the very best. Okay, so what’s the greatest lesson we’ve realized from podcasting? I really like this query. Okay, so I feel for me, the lesson I’ve realized is that this totally different venue for sharing on the web Is extra private and I feel it’s extra forgiving. It’s the area that we discovered the place we could be essentially the most candid and we don’t should second guess and like give so many disclaimers and be truthfully similar to frightened. I feel the factor I assumed earlier than I podcasted is that like, and also you’d be on Instagram or on a weblog or no matter and you’d simply say a joke or say, you already know, one thing about you’re weak, after which somebody would take it actually incorrect as a result of there’s, from another perspective it might be you already know, or no matter, proper? However I’m not speaking about issues which can be actually unhealthy. I’m speaking about issues which can be within the center. The place it’s prefer it’s simply individual by individual proper? And issues like that may get actually blown out on typed-out media. So I feel the factor I realized is just like the typed-out media is kind of like not actual, and in a manner it’s like, I suppose possibly this can be a unhappy perspective, however for me, it’s type of not value it to attempt to share my life by way of typing anymore as a result of I’m similar to so uninterested in folks taking issues fully, not how I meant them, or like not likely with the ability to like to grasp my intention or my persona or no matter, you already know? Like not with the ability to inform a joke, there’s only a lot lacking there. And possibly it’s ’trigger I’m not an incredible author. Like possibly for another person there’s not that very same factor lacking. 

Emma: I feel social media doesn’t have lots of room for that type of stuff, sadly. As a result of I truly assume you’re an incredible author.

Elsie: Thanks. I feel the factor I realized is that there are totally different areas for various ranges of private connection. And similar to authenticity and actually similar to, the forms of issues that you’d wanna share, prefer to share an embarrassing story on Instagram, I severely assume wouldn’t be value it. Like folks would, would discover a method to be imply about it. However right here it’s like a lot enjoyable. So I feel it simply opened my thoughts to the probabilities as an alternative of feeling so slim. Like I generally is a know-it-all and assume I already know, you already know, all the things there may be to share on the web. However now I’ve realized that I don’t and I really like that.

Emma: Yeah. I suppose the factor that involves thoughts, and I knew we might discuss this sooner or later in our two a whole lot episode, is, that it’s a factor I say to Elsie rather a lot each time I learn our podcast emails, so individuals who write the podcast field, they’re simply all the time so good and useful and like I’ve gotten so many ebook suggestions. I’ve purchased so many books from thrift books, from issues our podcast despatched, nevertheless it additionally, like I’ve truthfully, lots of occasions through the years learn podcast emails from listeners and similar to cried as a result of they’re mainly like, oh, your podcast is the factor I flip to once I want one thing gentle and like a pleasant voice that’s simply gonna be encouraging. And it’s, you already know, not something that’s gonna be making me unhappy, you already know? ’trigger like generally persons are like, I’m going by way of a tough time, my mother handed away and I’m cleansing out her home. And I hearken to your podcast whereas I do this as a result of it’s like the sunshine factor that I can stand throughout this darkish time. And there are such a lot of occasions the place I really feel like I really like my profession and I’m very pleased with it, however I additionally, and I feel lots of people really feel this fashion too, particularly if you get into your center age, is you’re feeling type of like, what am I doing with life? What’s the purpose? What does all of it imply? You already know, I do a podcast about, you already know, what I’m as much as and adorning my home and recipes and our websites about recipes and crafts and I really like all that, however it’s, generally it doesn’t all the time really feel very significant. And so each time I learn these emails, it means rather a lot to me. And we’ve gotten so a lot of these through the years and it simply makes me really feel like, oh, okay, this foolish factor that I’m doing, you already know, as a job issues to somebody. And it doesn’t matter to me if it issues to thousands and thousands of individuals or no matter, nevertheless it means rather a lot when folks trip in and so they’re like, hey, your podcast helped me by way of a tough time. And I’m like, that’s so cool and makes me so comfortable and it simply makes me really feel like what I’m doing issues a bit bit to somebody and I actually admire it. 

Elsie: Yeah. Makes me comfortable that new listeners have a lot they’ll marathon by way of ’trigger lots of people like marathoning is how lots of people hearken to podcasts.

Emma: Binge. Binge. Adore it. 

Elsie: Sure. And yeah, it makes me so comfortable that it’s like simply gonna be there. Simply chilling, ready for whoever. 

Emma: Yeah. I’ve heard folks, they’re like if you took this summer time off? I simply began over. They’re like, nicely, cool. I hope it was good. Yeah, so it’s like nice. In a manner, it makes me really feel like we’re changing into the consolation rewatch, you already know what I imply? Like we’re a bit piece of that type of media, and there’s nothing that I might love extra, actually. 

Elsie: Yeah. Me both. That’s good. Okay, so our favourite half in regards to the podcast, I feel my favourite half is that it’s so totally different from the remainder of the work we do. So the times that we podcast, I’m like at Emma’s home proper now, We often have lunch afterward. It’s only a totally different type of day. And yeah, I actually get pleasure from that and I actually benefit from the consolation re-watches ’trigger I really feel prefer it’s type of like if I needed to make the podcast be similar to, one factor I might most likely decide that, do this. At this level, I feel it’s enjoyable skipping round, however like I do assume that that a part of it’s the most, like, I don’t know, I feel that extra persons are becoming a member of in on our re-watches than on our ebook membership thus far. I feel that it’s similar to a factor that you just, that’s cool. That could be very simple to affix in. It’s very accessible, and lots of the films we watch are household pleasant or, yeah, I suppose the road of family-friendly is totally different for various folks, I take into account most issues household pleasant so long as it’s not like, you already know.

Emma: Scary, scary horror?

Elsie: Yeah. 

Emma: Blood, violence, killing, intercourse.

Elsie: Lengthy because it’s type of for teenagers. However I’ve heard some folks say that like they don’t let their youngsters watch Dwelling Alone. And I’m positively not in that class of parenting. 

Emma: I want my child would watch Dwelling Alone. 

Elsie: Oh, it’ll occur. It’s so cute. It’ll be the best factor ever. 

Emma: Yeah. A few of my favourite elements are, I like seeing, that is so random, however I like seeing as themes emerge from the issues we discuss. ’trigger everyone type of has just like the issues that they return to, the issues they consider rather a lot, issues that matter to them. And so they often flip into hobbies or subjects of dialog that you just gravitate in the direction of with mates, issues like that. And I really feel like for us, one among ’em is like fascinated by the long run in a constructive manner as a result of the long run is getting older. ’trigger everyone ages except you’re a vampire. Then, you already know, so we’re type of like placing on the market that we’re enthusiastic about getting older and I like that message rather a lot for lots of causes. But when for no matter cause, for us, it comes up rather a lot. We’ve talked about second lives or second careers, and we love to speak about individuals who began new careers of their forties, fifties, sixties, and seventies. We discuss our outdated woman retirement residence dream of ours, and we’ve got a ready record. Not likely, It is a faux ready record, however folks have mentioned they wanna be on the ready record. So we all know that lots of listeners are trying into that too. So yeah, fascinated by the long run in a constructive manner is sort of a theme that we’re all the time on that I really like. Additionally skincare, additionally consolation meals, additionally enjoyable films. So these are lots of the themes that we return to. And I feel it’s lots of like simply having fun with the on a regular basis magic of life, the easy pleasures, and issues, and I like that about us. I feel it’s fairly sensible. 

Elsie: Yeah, I find it irresistible too. So our favourite episode. Favourite episode that we are able to keep in mind. So I’ve like a pair, however I’ll say my most memorable episode is certainly my Evangelical upbringing episode quantity 75. Yours was most likely quantity 76. 

Emma: They’re actually shut collectively. If folks return and wanna hearken to ’em if you happen to haven’t heard them. 

Elsie: It’s positively the time that we went off of our regular path essentially the most, and it was very rewarding. It was very value it, I assumed. I beloved the way it got here out and I considered doing one other one sooner or later, in order that’s a possibly, nevertheless it’s positively a topic that like, everybody has these topics within them the place you’re type of an skilled on one thing that’s actually obscure and actually area of interest and it’s not part of your on a regular basis life. And it’s not likely even one thing you get pleasure from speaking about nevertheless it’s one thing that if you happen to like, get round the proper individual or the proper folks, you may discuss it for hours. And that’s a kind of for us. 

Emma: Yeah, and I feel too, like particularly when you’re a younger baby after which like center college, highschool age, even early faculty, like mainly till you’re 25 and your mind stops growing. I feel that there are all these adolescence and the issues that occur to us in these adolescence make this enormous affect in comparison with some issues that occur later in life. And so I feel everyone, however positively myself included, I return to lots of that and take into consideration the way it formed me. And I’m additionally usually like, type of reshaping it, like type of analyzing it, like turning it over and taking a look at it in a unique gentle and being like, truly I like this half. And you already know what? This half is extra up than I assumed. And you already know, you’re simply type of like all the time weighing it and seeing the way it formed you and seeing what you may take from it that’s constructive and what you may study from it which may’ve been unfavorable with the intention to keep away from it or not repeat it or simply study from it in no matter manner. So I feel us rising up evangelical, for me, it’s that type of factor the place I’m returning to it rather a lot in my thoughts simply ’trigger I wanna weigh it simply because I wanna reexamine it. Mm-hmm. And I wanna see what good I can take and what different issues I can type of set down or course of by way of in order that I can set them down. And I feel in that manner, everybody has some issues like that of their previous, no matter it is perhaps. All various things, however that one’s a part of ours. So, I feel that for me it can positively come up in my artwork, most likely all all through my life in several methods. I don’t know if I actually need like make a complete model or discuss it on a regular basis, like with work, however I do assume it’s expressing it’s simply not for me. I feel there are folks doing that. That’s superior. I don’t have that a lot to say about it in that manner. However I do assume it’s one thing that can get expressed by way of inventive issues I do in my life, most likely my whole life. Simply because it was such a formative period and it’s a factor that I return to rather a lot in my thoughts as I tear it aside, you already know? Anyway, one among my favourite episodes was episode 48, which was about second lives. So we’re kinda speaking about second careers and like different issues, once more, returning to our theme of how getting older is superior. 

Elsie: I beloved that episode. 

Emma: Yeah, and it’s type of an oldie ’trigger that is episode 200, in order that’s like, type of early on in a manner. 

Elsie: Really the opposite one I had finished was quantity 49, which is simply the subsequent one after that, which is the time I interviewed Jonathan Adler. And we stopped doing interviews.
