Most of my closest friendships have originated from my days back in elementary school and are still genuine after 31 years. In the past 10 years, I have established my “mommy friends.” I have bonded with these compelling women over the trials and tribulations of raising our children and surviving (thus far, at least)! Lastly, there is that one special friend that entered my life unexpectedly, when she started dating a friend from college. That friend is Jen. Our friendship was sealed when I realized I had found my permanent shopping partner! Jen, like myself, is an avid lover of fashion, and we instantly connected over kimonos and skinny jeans. Beyond the mall, our friendship grew deeper when we both became mothers and our husbands were called upon as the godfathers of our daughters. Endless phone chats, play dates, shopping escapades, and dinners have secured our friendship for life. Jen is more than just a friend, she is family.
She was an integral member in the development of my styling business and has proposed so many creative and useful ideas. I rely on her immensely, and have become more bothersome than I would like to admit! Her selflessness and generosity doesn’t end there. She also treats my girls like her own. There’s nothing she wouldn’t do for them. They are so lucky to have “Aunt” Jen is their lives.
