What we have (and want) to give to ourselves and to others is often clarified through time outside. At Lodged Out in the Adirondacks of New York, four women share how they spent the weekend through a giving lens.

And as a bonus, we start off the episode by talking with Cassie Abel about “Women-Led Wednesday” – a new initiative to support female-led businesses this holiday season and beyond.
