3 Month Blog Anniversary!


   Hi Lovely Readers,
We are so happy to announce that Fashionably Festive is celebrating its 3 month Anniversay today! While this blog has technically been up for  3 months and 16 days it has been exactly 3 months since Kelly and I (JEN) have been blogging together.  Kelly came on board with me April 14th and it has been blog love ever since.  We have had such a great time blogging for the past 90 days and we are Super excited to continue this journey.  Kelly and I thought it would be fun but also overdue and more than appropriate to finally post a picture of the 2 of us clowns together.  As you may know, we blog from different states and we seldom see each other as much as we would like.  If you didn't know this simple fact, well that's probably because we haven't done a great enough job telling you (our readers) who we are. Today is the day we intend to clear that all up for you and put ourselves out in the open, stripped naked in the wind haha. Well okay maybe we won't put it all out there but at least the relevant stuff, the good stuff.

Most importantly today we wanted to say "Thank You" to our readers.  It means more than words could express to have your support and interest.  Also thank you to our friends who have been very supportive of this idea from the start and have been super encouraging every step of the way.  We are still newbies at this whole process, but it wouldn't be half as fun to pursue without all of you.  We hope you continue to follow along with us as we endure our love affair for fashion, beauty, food, entertaining and life as we know it.  
With much appreciation,
Jen & Kel

The two of us gals have been friends since high school.  I would say the one thing that brought us together besides mutual friends, was our uncanny ability to make each other laugh endlessly.  While Kelly was busy being a basketball star, I was busy jumping up and down and screaming with the rest of my cheerleading team.  After High school we spent one amazing summer filled with non stop banter and laughter at the Jersey Shore with our besties.  Just in case you are wondering, NO we are not guidettes!  After college our lives turned out to be  so unpredictable, taking us to many unforeseen places.  As a result a few years had past without us seeing each other.  You know when you have a great friend when after so much time has past and you finally reunite, it's as if no time has past at all.  Starting this blog together has really brought us even closer.  While I am a city girl as Kelly likes to say, and she is a self proclaimed "townie" we both still have much in common.  We share all of our similar passions with you on our blog - Fashionably Festive 

Blog Factoids:
*Kelly and Jen collaborate ideas and alternate writing blog content.
*Jen takes most of the photos for this blog.
* Kelly is the guru behind most recipes and festive drinks.
*We most often style friends and family members for our outfit blog posts.
*You will rarely see us in an outfit post since we love to style others, but keep following along and you may catch any rare appearances.
