    The Happy Hour PodcastI'm Emma. I love cocktails with friends but I'm definitely no mixologist and I'm not exactly an interviewer. I'm Just a girl that went to a lot of happy hours and met a lot of friends along the way. For me a big way to keep a busy week of stress at bay is to meet up for some fun with friends and chat it out. I always leave feeling like I'm back to happy… back to me, taking their amazing advice, with the power to tackle anything life throws at me. Obviously, a glass of something bubbly helps too
