In this episode I have a lovely conversation with Marta. Marta has been a long time reader of the blog and we have exchanged emails, texts, instagram comments, but this was the first time I actually had the pleasure to chat in real life with her.
From the minute I spoke with her I could hear her love for her family and how she is using planning to make life easier for them.
