We are so excited for today’s episode! We are joined by our very close friend, Rachelle Tratt, who shares her love story of herself and her fiance, Tom.
We recorded this conversation just after Rachelle and Tom got engaged and have been saving it for the week of Valentine’s Day because it is such a powerful story on love, heartbreak, growth, and finding “the one” — all during a global pandemic.
Rachelle shares the twists, turns, and pleasant surprises in her love journey, the highs and the lows, the unexpected growth points, and everything that has led her to be in the right place and the right time to fall in love with “her person.” We also discuss online dating in general, past relationships, dating in the age of COVID-19, how to energetically manifest “your person,” and tangible tips for all; no matter your relationship status.
Whether you are single right now, searching for your person, or you’re in an incredible coupleship, Rachelle and Tom’s story is one to not miss.
