And each week, we’ll talk about how.
The 3 Keys that Help Me Actually Enjoy the Holidays
Pumpkin patches, Friendsgiving, decorating gingerbread houses, shopping for Christmas presents - the holiday season is certainly not lacking in things to do! But sometimes... all of these fun things can lead to a stress-filled season! In this episode, I’m breaking down the 3 things I do each year to keep our holidays as joy-filled and as stress-free as possible.
MLMs and their Power to Support (and Hinder) our Friendships
Are MLMs a path to friendship? Or the end of it? Or perhaps something in-between? In this episode, we’re going to talk about how MLMs impact our connections. Both in how they can help create them and hinder them - and, in ways we maybe don’t always realize!

My Experience Working with a Personal Stylist
Do you ever walk into your closet and feel like you have nothing to wear despite the fact that it’s packed full of clothes? This was me almost every day. So last spring, I decided to invest (both in head space and in a personal stylist) to help me figure out a way to make getting dressed in the morning feel easier. In this episode, I’m sharing the lessons learned along the way!
How-to Make a Mom Friend through Daycare
Daycare can be one of THE BEST places to make mom friends. The kids already know each other, and it’s almost a guarantee you’re in a similar life-season and live nearby each other! The problem is, it often doesn’t just happen by passing each other during pick-ups and drop-offs. In this episode, I’ll share my number one strategy for getting contact info and using it to go from exchanging driveby smiles to full-blown friendship!
How Detaching Helped Me FINALLY Find My Circle (And How It Can Help You Too!)
It seems counterintuitive, but detaching has probably been one of the most sanity-saving strategies I have used (and continue to use) in my friend-making journey. In this episode, I’m sharing how detaching has helped me make faster + deeper connections, avoid awkward and desperate interactions, and confidently pursue friendship without feeling so crazy along the way!
Stop Counting Down the Minutes ‘til Bedtime with Allie Casazza
Survival mode happens. But we don’t want to set up camp there. There’s a better way to do motherhood. A lighter way. In this episode, I’m joined by author + speaker Allie Casazza who is on a mission to put a stop to hot-mess mom culture and give moms their joy back. Listen in because this is literally the pep talk you didn’t know you needed!
A true gift
I absolutely love this podcast and Emily. A lot of times, the advise you get on making new friends is very high level and not actionable. Often, it actually makes you feel worse since it makes it sound so easy, and you feel like you are failing. But Emily actually lays out what to do and what to say and I am so grateful I stumbled across her and her podcast.
Such incredible value!
I just listened to the episode where Emily is interviewing Brittany Bergman. I’m going to listen to the episode again because it was that valuable. It was such an authentic and connecting conversation where these two women shared vulnerably, openly, and in a way that gives anyone who listens a whole new set of tools to use so that we can honor ourselves as human beings and also be the most loving moms we can be too. I’m truly grateful to have found this conversation and your podcast, Emily.
Feels like chatting with a good friend
Emily feels so relatable and honest, giving you the kind of wisdom and perspective that you’d get from hashing things out with a trusted friend. A must listen for moms!
