This week, Maggie interviews Jacey about her European travels and they talk about the concept of "home."

 

What you'll hear:

  • Stories from Jacey's trip and an update on Maggie's life
  • What it's like to go on an overnight train
  • What "home" means to us
  • How to handle homesickness

Can I quote you on that?

  • "I feel like if the Skimm were to do a Louvre tour, that's what we did." Maggie
  • "Heaven is like this, all together around the table." Jacey
  • "How can you pay a euro thirty for the best cappuccino you've ever had, and if you want anything close to that here, it's $6 and served with a side of pretension?" Jacey, on how America is getting coffee wrong
  • "What lasts is not often the thing we spend most of our time trying to attain or give attention to. Money doesn't last. Fame doesn't last." Jacey
  • "Be all in on the things that matter." Jacey
  • "Three things make up  home: people, place and purpose." Maggie
  • "There is a distinction between homesickness and a longing to feel at home where you are." Maggie
  • "The sooner you have authentic, vulnerable relationships where you are, the easier it will be in the moments when you're really missing the ones that are far away." Maggie
  • "Home is where my microphone and my dog are." Jacey
