Podcast Episode 126: Moving to the Country with Paula Coop McCrory

Thanks so much for coming by to check out Episode 126 of The New Family Podcast where we talk to mom Paula Coop McCrory about making a big move to the country.

Ever been out of town and thought, “Let’s just see what houses go for around here?” That’s what happened when digital influencer Paula Coop McCrory, of Pinterest fame, was on a camping trip with her family. The result? Pulling up stakes and moving to the country! Paula is on the show to share what the transition has been like, as well as her advice for other families contemplating a big lifestyle change.

Paula’s Favourite Parenting Advice
“I’d have to say it’s from my mom. And my mom from the get-go, cause I remember being pregnant with our first and I was petrified, and my mom always me brought me back—she was like ‘just listen to your gut.’ Because you are laden with so much opinion all the time. Like you can start researching and Googling, and asking friends, overhearing other conversations of parents. I know from myself, I got to the point where I could hardly see straight. So that’s one thing that I’ve always used to pull myself back, is to just follow your gut.”
