The sheKC in Me. Why I'm doing this.
Written by: Brooke
I met Jenny many years ago. I knew the second I met her that we were going to be friends forever. She was so sweet, real and genuinely kind.
At the time, I owned a boutique. I loved my single, carefree life, owning my own store and working my true passion. I couldn't imagine that life could get any better.
Then, it did.
I met the man of my dreams and had two kids. Ah yes, life got sweeter, indeed.
Something had to go. Bye bye boutique. Hello bottles, play dates and a new passion. My family.
Don't get me wrong. That is still very much the case. But, I have always been a 'go-getter'. A 'do-er'. A businesswoman in my soul. And although I temporarily lost my style groove (watch for another blog post soon about how I got my groove back... yeah, kinda like Stella), fashion has always been such a huge part of my heart.
So, over the years as my best friend, Jenny, and I walked a crazy similar path of marriage and parenting together, we talked about starting a business. We didn't know what. We didn't know when. But, we both knew it was in the stars.
Jenny called me one day a few months ago and said, 'I've got it. It's a lifestyle blog. It's sheKC.' Because we share a brain (no, for real, we're absolutely certain that we were separated at birth), we were immediately on the EXACT same page. One thing led to another and you're looking at the result. We have poured our hearts into sheKC in hopes of inspiring, informing and connecting the women of our awesome city.
We keep it real. We get into the nitty gritty of motherhood, life and everything in between. Let's face it, we live in a world of social media where everything seems so perfect sometimes. Well, I can tell you that I truly live in organized chaos. Sometimes unorganized. Ok, just chaos!
I love my life, but it is absolutely crazy most of the time. Some days I feel like I am just surviving. I feel like I'm failing as a wife, as a mom. I call Jenny and then I know I'm not alone because she's in the same boat. So many of us are.
We want women to come to our site to relate to the stories, find some tried and true useful information and spoil themselves in our sheSHOP!
So, enjoy. I'm truly glad you're here.
