One thing we know for sure is that we’d be lost without friendships in motherhood. In this podcast, Heather and Brittany speak to Danielle Kelly and Liz Franco, creators of MTHR Collective. We talk about the importance of cultivating friendships in motherhood, how to search for your village, how to grow new friendships, and mourning the loss of old friendships.
Liz Franco is first-time work-from-home mama + graphic designer who tends to wear many hats (literally and figuratively). An advocate for postpartum mental wellness, Liz is a firm believer in the notion of “it takes a village” applying to raising up children and mothers alike. Pinot noir and a bath bomb is her self-care love language. You can find her on Instagram here.
Danielle Kelley is a Bay Area based, fine-art photographer and mom of one. When she is not talking about herself in the third person, she is usually having a pizza eating contest with her husband, trying NOT to go to Target, and wondering if she can go just one more day without washing her hair. Current favorite mom quote: “You’re not doing it wrong, it’s just that hard”. You can find Danielle on Instagram here.
MTHR Collective is a four-day retreat in the Russian River Valley of California for the every mom who craves fresh air and inspiration. It is designed for mothers who have an unwavering passion to create, and who have been looking for the right space to share, collaborate, inspire/be inspired by others, with the end goal that we all leave feeling both creatively re-centered and majorly supported.
