Did you know that Mary & I have known each other for 30 years? January 2021 marked the 30th anniversary of us meeting!
In 1991, I transferred mid-school year from a private Catholic school to the local public school, because I wanted to go to school with the kids in my neighborhood. The 4th grade classroom I was placed in, didn’t have any of the neighborhood kids I knew, of course. But, there was a punky little girl with stonewashed jeans, a side ponytail and hot pink converse high tops, named Mary. She was as intrigued by my cable knit sweaters and penny loafers as I was with her Steve Miller Band T-shirts, and the rest is history.
We have weathered losing parents, living in separate countries, marriage, illness, childbirth, building a company and brand. And now a pandemic. We live on opposite sides of the country now, and I work remotely from my home in California.

Mary did my hair for our Senior Ball; I did hers for her wedding. We both have 1 daughter and 1 son. Our husbands are told they look like brothers.
