Happy National Best Friends Day!
As twin sisters and best friends, we couldn’t let the day pass without celebrating such a fun holiday! It’s so crazy to believe we’ve been blogging for 10 years! But of course more than that, we’ve been best friends since the start.
As identical twin sisters, we are so grateful to have a built best friend! Without our close friendship, the idea for TheDoubleTakeGirls would never have come about!
We thought it would be fun to answer a few questions in today’s post in celebration of today’s holiday! But before we do that, here’s a closer look at today’s sister style outfits from LOFT!
Q: What is it like working with your sister?
A: We love it! It’s amazing to have someone that can provide immediate feedback and support at a moment’s notice. Plus it allows us to tag team projects and handling social media with our roles as wives and working moms. It’s a huge blessing that we only live a few miles away from each other now. Our little girls love playing together while we take flatlays, talk about new projects and sometimes take photos too! There’s definitely a lot of multitasking happening for sure.
Q: What’s been the hardest thing about blogging?
A: I think it still surprises both of us how long it actually takes to maintain a blog. It’s all such fun but there is a delicate balance to ensure we don’t work too much on the blog/social media to allow us time to take care of ourselves and our families. The great part of having a duo blog is when life gets crazy for one of us that the other sister can pick up the slack. We are truly blessed to have non-stop sister support!
Q: What is something that most people don’t know about you all?
A: Linds and I were actually adopted. Our birth mom’s only requests were that we would not be separated and that we would go to a Christian family. We are so amazingly blessed to have the most incredible brother and parents. From a young age they told us about our adoption story and it is a passion that we will both always support. God provided for us each in a miraculous way and we will never forget the immensity of our parent’s decision to choose adoption.
Q: Do you have advice to other bloggers / working moms?
A: We sure do! First of all, don’t chase things that aren’t your passion. You must love what you do! Our motto is life is too short to wear clothes that you don’t love – or a job that doesn’t fulfill you! Also, definitely find a mentor. It makes such a huge difference to have someone that has already gone before you and made mistakes so you don’t have to! We’ve made so many amazing blogging friends over the years and having their ongoing support means the world to us.
Thank you so much for stopping by today to learn more about us and our blog! If you have any questions about us, please leave a comment below. You all are the reason we keep blogging. We can’t say thank you enough for your support and kind comments. It means the world to us! Here’s to another 10 years and beyond of blogging and sister fun!
