True blue is a phrase that is defined as follows: completely faithful and loyal to a person or cause. We use the term often in conversation, especially when referring to a true blue friend. This February, J. Jill is celebrating true blue in every form from classic denim to friendships that last forever. As part of the J.Jill Life Stylers network, I want to share with you my true blue friend and invite you to tell me about yours for a chance to WIN some J.Jill True Blue Jeans for you and a friend.
When I became pregnant with my twins I joined up with an iVillage chatroom for expectant moms. The room was full of pregnant moms who were due to give birth in April 2010. I was used to the chat forums in iVillage, as I was active in the TTC (Trying to Conceive) and IVF rooms. I met and still stay good friends with many women from those groups.
When I joined the April Expecting Board I introduced myself. Not long after my now best friend Bridget joined. About 6 months into our pregnancies we both discovered we lived in Oregon. When we started talking more we found out we were both close to Portland, then wow – we live in the same town?!
Come to find we lived only about 4 miles away from each other! By this time we were heavily pregnant and I was on bedrest, so we decided to meet after our babies were born and we were settled. We met at the local Starbucks near me and introduced our babies to each other.
We became fast friends and started meeting regularly at that Starbucks, then started having playdates at each other’s homes. We’ve been besties evert since. We’ve added other awesome friends to the pack – Cassee, Joanna, and Jana, the ladies who are regularly up for ditching the kids with the husbands in favor of sushi and wine with us.
Us with our friend Mary... and a drag queen :)

One thing I can tell you about Bridget is she is always there if you need her. I can text her at 2am and know she’ll answer. We can talk to each other about anything and everything – and often do! Bridget is a friend that I know, without a doubt, will be friends til the end. She and I will be sitting with our other awesome besties Cassee, Joanna, and Jana somewhere at a nursing home saying inappropriate things. I am almost sure of it!
