S2E2: The Imposter Syndrome of being a Hostess with Ana from Rosemary & Rye



Episode 2 of Season 2 and we've decided it's time for us to get real with y'all. Even though we've been hosting parties for years, it doesn't mean that we're not affected by imposter syndrome. (Which, in case you didn't know is when you feel like a fraud while you're doing it.) For this discussion we've brought in Ana from Rosemary and Rye to bring her own insight to the discussion. She's the most positive person, and you're going to love her. We're super excited to share the episode with you, enjoy!

Ana is the self taught chef, photographer, baguette lover, and blogger behind Rosemary + Rye. She lives in the beautiful state of Colorado and, naturally, enjoys craft brews and kombucha. If she's not making a huge mess cooking in the kitchen, she can be found snuggling with her rescue pup, Harper; hiking; or sneaking bites of home made ice cream out of the freezer.
