Moms ISO Mom Friends

Moms ISO Mom Friends

I had my daughter in the middle of a very cold Chicago winter. Which meant we spent the first few months bundled up inside our home. And while I loved being with her, I felt lonely and isolated. I didn’t have mom friends to turn to for support or even just have an adult conversation. That’s why when I started Monica + Andy, I committed to making it more of a community than just a company.

Last month I had the pleasure of catching up with my newly-expecting (yay!) friend Danielle, the founder of The Everygirl, and I was reminded of a project she undertook on her personal blog. Every season she writes a post that serves as the catalyst to connect her readers where they live—in real life.

So starting today we are taking a page from her playbook and connecting moms with each other IRL. Whether you’re paralyzed by a cold winter or just aren’t great at making the first move (making mom friends is hard!) the comments section below is here to help.

Also, if you guys make a connection in a city where Monica + Andy is located, email us at storks@monicaandandy.com and write “Mom Meet-Up” in the subject line. You can use the Guideshop to get together—snacks and drinks on us!



  • Leave a comment below with your city IN CAPS and tell us a little bit about yourself + your baby also include a social handle so your mom match can get in touch.
  • Before leaving your comment scroll all the way down to see if someone else has mentioned your city.
  • If you do see your city (yay!), reply to that comment.
  • If you don’t see your city, start a new comment thread.

It’s that easy!


CHICAGO! Hi, I’m Monica. I’m an entrepreneur/mom with a seven year-old daughter and husband I adore. I spend most of my time in Lincoln Park, love testing out new vegan recipes and I'm always up for coffee dates. Follow me on Instagram @monicaandandy.
