Description

Tova Leigh and Kristen Hewitt are two friends living an ocean apart with two common bonds: motherhood and wine. They are blunt, real, and sometimes their husbands call them bossy. But they also love to have fun and their mission is to make you smile and feel inspired, (or just a little bit better about the fact that you haven't slept in years.) Each week they discuss the ups and downs of parenting, relationships, trending topics, dirty diapers, ice cream, and everything in between.
