EP 50: SEMI'S ALL AROUND (HAPPY 50TH)
For a show that runs on pure heart, there's no better star for our semi-centennial than Ms. Ruth Langmore. For an episode that runs on pure adoration, there's no better endearment than calling a semi-centennial a bi-centennial when one means 50 and the other, 200 (doesn't bi-centennial sound more like 50..?). For the best podcast on earth, there's no better honor than timing as good as this. Welcome to 50, thank you for 50, and you're welcome for 50. May we keep creating a better and better and better world. Love, Anne // Intro by @snooze.music // Vlogbrothers video

Juno's dad would understand Malcolm & Marie. He knows "the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are.
