We’ve known each other for about 15 years- we met at work; Trisha (brunette) was the teacher and I (blonde) was her student. We hit it off immediately like a love affair in a Nescafé commercial, but we didn’t really become “friends” until one day I called Trisha who complained; "I’ll always be single and I don’t even have anyone to climb Mount Kilimanjaro with.” My response was “I’ll go with you!”
The next year, we did it!
That trip and all the year-long preparation for it really solidified our relationship- nothing like spending six days, sick in a foreign country and hiking with only each other to talk to, to bring us closer together. Especially since she saved me from a baboon attack!
Now, 11 years later, we still work close to each other and have a small business. Trisha has an amazing husband and son, and my "kid" Riley is 16!
A fun fact about us is that everyone confuses us. We don't get it at all!
