Ep 12 | Getting to know Grandma Mari

We’ve been in Iowa these past couple of weeks.  Kelly and Sami were both born and raised here and so there is a lot of family here.

Getting to know where our famlies are from is an important thing for us so we thought having Mari on the podcast would be a great thing!

Elinor (daughter) and Sami (mom) were on vacation in Phoenix in March or 2019 when the concept of the mother-daughter podcast was born.

Sami, a digital marketing strategist, was working on her own podcast, when Elinor decided she needed one of her own.  When talking about concepts, the idea of having regular chats about life and recording them came up.

And with that, Conversations with My Daughter was born.

Each week, a new topic, and possible life lesson, are brought to you with the hopes it will make you smile, remember conversations with your own mom, and hopefully inspire new conversations with your own children.
