The One that Started it ALL!
When my friend Jen (@alittledoseofjen) and I met over 2 years ago on instagram we became instant friends! We were both starting our home decor accounts. We started following each other and commenting on each other’s posts and just became such good instagram friends. It’s funny because I’m from Utah, she’s from Chicago, so who knew we would actually become real life friends too?
One day she messaged me asking me if I would like to attend an Instagram conference in Waco that was put on by The Design Twins. I was a bit nervous to attend as I didn’t know anyone nor had I met Jennie in real life yet.
Can I just way I’m SO glad that I went? It changed my life forever! Not only did I learn so much about instagram but I also made so many new friends including Jen. She’s so awesome! I’d like to think we are like Lavern and Shirley or Anne with an E and Diana and that we are kindred spirits.
Throughout our journey the last couple of years we have been trying to brainstorm where we could start branching into other avenues besides instagram.
How the podcast came about.
So last spring we had a breakthrough and started talking about doing a podcast, but unfortunately that was put on hold for quite a few months as Jennie lost her sweet and courageous dad to cancer and her precious dog Wrigley passed away only a couple of months later. The timing just wasn’t right.
The start of 2020 we were finally ready to do this. It took a couple of months to get it all worked out and to my pleasant surprise I we hired my brother. He is now our producer of the show! It’s actually been so awesome!
Jen and I have loved working on this project together. I’m so excited for this new journey in podcasting and to see where this may take us. Maybe a talk show some day? Ok a girl can dream right?
In our first episode you really get to know Jennie and I. We really make each other laugh all the time and have so much in common. So I hope you take the time to listen to our very first podcast and that you’ll enjoy our friendship as we share tears, laughter, and inspiration along the way!
