Hello Blogging World!
We are two girls blogging about things that spark our interests, anything from fashion to food, traveling, books we love, and everything in between.
We met through family friends in Indiana when we were just 11 years old.
Before we were old enough to drive and before emails and the internet existed, we used to be pen pals. We would send each other cute little stickers and those half-heart necklaces that say “Best Friends”….you know….the ones where one side says BE FRI and the other says ST END. So it’s the real deal.
We’ve lived across the country from each other, in neighboring states, in the same state and have always kept in touch and have been in each other’s lives. True friendship is the best, isn’t it?
Come along on our adventures, we love meeting new people!

That’s awesome, I love your story. Very sweet. I’ve made a great friend thru WordPress Blogging. Alys lives in San Jose and writes at Gardening Nirvana dot WordPress. After many posts and messages back and forth, I’m so excited to be planning a trip to visit next spring. Nothing can compare to a best girlfriend, who knows your heart and supports your dreams. Lucky me. Lucky you
Thank you all so much for the continued love and support of our blog. We love blogging and we love the supportive and kind community that is WordPress.
Real friends are hard to find. More power to your friendship and may you have an awesome adventure ahead of you!
Agreed. Thank you for the kinds words! Gotta keep your friends close 🙂
Couldn’t agree more. True friends are hard to find these days, so if you find one don’t let them go.
Oh my gosh, I remember those friendship necklace : ) but instead of a necklace I’ve got my girly some friendship mood ring.
You guys have a lovely blog!

I love the story of your friendship! I have a friend like this…she lives in Rochester, NY and we have been friends in different states for longer than we ever lived near one another! Now we have “best friends” Alex and Ani bracelets…gotta bring the BFF love into this decade;)
Thanks! I LOVE that you guys have bracelets, that is so awesome 🙂
We used to live in the Midwest together in Chicago and Indiana, and then I moved to DC and California and she went to Arizona and back to Chicago again. We are all over the map but are still besties. 🙂
Love the bracelet idea! May have to steal that one myself. 🙂
Nice! I have a best friend that was exactly the same way – we met at summer camp while she grew up in OH and I in IL. We’re now states a part, but we’ll always stay close. 🙂 Looking forward to following your adventures!
I’m from IL too! Where did you grow up?! I’m from Brookfield, by the zoo! haha
Thanks so much for commenting, I found your blog today and will be following you too! 🙂
Nice! I’m from Barrington, while the bestie is from Oxford, OH. We both went to Miami University (MU is located in Oxford), but other than that we’ve always been in separate states, ha!
Now that I live in California, I realize how friendly and polite people from the Midwest are 🙂
Such a small world, love meeting other bloggers from Illinois!
Wooo! So fun! I’m out in Colorado, but almost everyone out here came from the Midwest. Guess I’m kind of cheating the system, baha!
Hah! My boyfriend and I have been trying to move to Colorado for years, but work keeps pulling us in different directions. We’ve lived in DC, California and are moving to Seattle next.
One day, Colorado! Fingers crossed. 🙂
Are you loving it out there??
Haha! I am! We were living in Chicago and I was going to quit my job anyways. Fiancé could move anywhere with his, so we just figured, why the heck not! It’s a TOTAL change of pace, but it was definitely a good move for us. 🙂 Though, be forewarned, everyone and their mom is moving out here right now, so it’s the hot thing to do, haha!
