1. How did you meet?
Well its kind of a funny story. We are truly the unlikely duo. We both grow up here in Tucker County, went to school together (Leah being three grades above Courtney), and hung out with the same people. We both knew of each other but never talked before until last summer. Leah dated Ryan N. all the way through high school and then eventually went their separate ways. In the mean time Courtney dated a few boys in high school including Leah's brother Ryan M. We know were nuts but it gets better we promise. After high school Ryan N. and Courtney got together and starting dating. They got married three years ago and now have a handsome ten month old son, Kace. So both of us have a third party interest so to speak. Leah has been married now to Ryan H. for 5 blessed years. Both of us where pregnant during the same times last year and we connected over cloth diapers. Leah already having her first beautiful little boy, Quinn, was a pro at cloth diapering and Courtney being pregnant with her first child wanted knowledge and tips on clothing diapering. So our first entail connection was about our kids. Us both knowing that someday that our sons would go to school together made our friendship grow and blossom. Those first awkward meetings have now turned into why haven't we been friends sooner. We get together regularly for play dates. Our boys love each other and its so fun to watch them play and interact with each other. In the end we both might have dated the same guy and we both married Ryan's but we wouldn't have had it any other way or we wouldn't be friends today. So yes, you might call us crazy but crazier things have happened in this world. We are just both thankful on how everything worked out.
2. Why t-shirts?
We both know the struggles it is for moms with boys to find cute clothes and lets face it us too at times that's why we decided to come out with clothing specially shirts right now. We wanted to make stylish shirts that could be for everyone not just gender specific. We also wanted something that was stylish and that moms could wear with their little's. We plan on adding new designs and products not just tshirts to our store very soon.
3. What's the heart behind your business?
We are just two mamas who have always had a dream to own our own business, and we want people to feel appreciated and trendy when they wear our shirts. If it wasn't for the support from each other, our families, and our dear customers we wouldn't be open today.
4. Did you think you would grow this fast?
No way! We always hoped and dreamed that our business would be a success but never thought in a million years that people out there would respond to our designs so well!
5. What about doing business with kids?
It has its challenges but everything in life can. We both think it is totally worth it because we want to make this a business that can grow with our growing families. We truly wouldn't have it any other way.
6. What are your wildest dreams and biggest fears?
We think that every business owner has that fear of failing but in life you have to reach for the stars or your never going to go anywhere. We don't try to focus on the if's or what's of the business we try to put all our energy into making this new little business grow. Our wildest dreams are unlimited. We both would love to see our designs in major brand stores some day. We have also had dreams about this becoming something that could support both of our families financially. Now that would be a BIG blessing.
