Today's episode is special for several reasons, but the main one is because the guest is my own sister! Ashlee went through something all too common in motherhood: postpartum anxiety (and depression). We thought it would be important to share her story while it's still fairly recent and fresh in her mind. In addition to being a new mom, Ashlee is reaching for her dreams to make a new album. She's crowdfunding the project on Kickstarter!

I hope you can gain insight or find comfort from listening to our conversation, or from listening to Ashlee's music!
