The Acorns

Is your “free time” spent at playgrounds, sports fields or ballet lessons? Have you watched the same Disney cartoon more than 10 times? Are you constantly balancing your time between family, career, marriage, home, community, yourself, and any combination of those? If yes – you might be an Acorn.

We are cool (often exhausted) moms who want to hang out with other cool (equally exhausted) moms and do stuff together!

Meet the Acorn Co-Chairs

Brittany Seymour (left) moved to Boston in 2010 to pursue her dream job. A year later, her husband joined her and they started their family. As new parents living in a new city with new jobs, making new friends fell to the bottom of their to-do list. But when Brittany decided to join the Forum, everything changed, and she’s never looked back! In her down time, Brittany enjoys the simple things like coffee, wine, and family snuggles in her PJs. And of course, her fellow Acorns!

Sarah Papajohn (right) moved to Beacon Hill in 2015 with her husband and young daughter after selling their home in the suburbs to begin their new life raising their daughter in the city. Looking to meet new people, Sarah joined the Beacon Hill Women’s Forum. Shortly after, she began attending Beacon Hill Moms events, made lasting friendships, and the rest is history. In her spare time, Sarah enjoys running, cooking, and sewing anything from home décor to couture.
