So we had the inspirational @lisafaulknercooks on the show this morning talking about her new book Meant to Be – My Journey to Motherhood – a sorrowful, hopeful, joyful story of trying, infertility, IVF and adoption. For anyone who is anywhere on or near that journey, these pages could help soak up some tears. I cried and I felt a flood of gratitude and I promised myself to take deep breaths and be more patient at 7pm – which is usually my breaking point. I also wanted to go straight home, take them out of school and just hold them. (Ps. yes that is the jardin en plastique vert – #astroturf almost finished!)
Recently, the duo is in gossip town for making a hesitant yet super lovely kiss on air.
While she was interviewing her husband, she leaned towards her husband and kissed on-a live recording.
