A day long experience for mothers and tween daughters to
build a strong foundation before entering the teen years.
This is for you if:
- You feel distance between you and your mother or daughter
- You find yourself reacting to her in ways that aren't helpful
- You want your daughter to turn to you when she's struggling
- You want to connect with your daughter before it's too late
- You want to feel closer and know exactly what your mother/daughter
needs from you
- As a mother you feel selfish putting yourself first and asking for what you need
Create deeper and healthier ways of interacting that honor you as mother and daughter.
We're in this together, and this day? It's all about you.

The Day's Events
SPEND A DAY TOGETHER IN NATURE
Chester County, Pennsylvania is known for its natural beauty. Join me (Hilary) and my mother (Nancy) in this historic stone home in Coatesville for a day long mother-daughter experience. Every detail is carefully curated with your enjoyment and growth in mind. The healing elements of nature are blended into our day. Creating art in the garden, enjoying a delicious dinner in the cool evening air all while being surrounded by the healing sights and sounds of nature.
ENJOY DELICIOUS MEALS THAT NURTURE YOUR BODY AND SOUL
Nancy (aka Hilary's Mama) is a culinary genius. A retired cooking school owner who created seasonal experiences for her students through her menu and table settings. She has developed a special menu for you to enjoy throughout the day. Keeping in mind picky eaters and dietary restrictions because delicious does not equal fancy. Spend time in the kitchen learning from this Midwestern woman who is Barefoot Contessa meets Martha Stewart. Mothers and daughters will learn a new seasonal menu that they can prepare together over and over this summer. Then we will all enjoy this delicious meal together as we reflect on our day.
UNDERSTANDING & BONDING
Mothers and daughters learn about the mother-daughter relationship throughout the day. Connect while having fun and learning about yourself and each other. Learn life changing tools that you will immediately open your eyes and benefit you for years to come. Improve the way you relate, listen and understand your daughter. Leave feeling loved with a strong plan in place to keep your bond strong through the teen years.
YOUR RETREAT HOSTS - IT'S A FAMILY AFFAIR
A therapist for teen girls and life coach for mothers and daughters with over thirteen years of experience. In a culture that tells us to accept the conflict between mothers and daughters, Hilary asks us to challenge this through nurturing, love and understanding.
I grew up watching my mother write her own recipes, design beautiful experiences and teach women how to feel confident in the kitchen. She has a knack for turning everyday occasions into special ones. With over forty years of entertaining and culinary expertise, Nancy joins us to teach mothers and daughters how to bond over these special moments at home in every season.
