Deedy Sklarew & Leslie Flores

I met this fabulous duo in 2001 when are our oldest kids were starting  pre-school. They were already like sisters and our sisterhood fell right into place.

These two girls and I have experienced both the dark and the light together and there are no other women I would rather walk through the trenches with. Through it all, we always find the time to laugh – and laugh a lot – share our creative sides, cook amazing meals together and share deep thoughts. Some of my favorite moments are simply hanging out at Leslie’s, tackling a jigsaw puzzle or sitting under cozy blankets watching movies we have all seen 10 times before.

Deedy is one of the most positive people that has ever crossed my path and Leslie is a creative soul mate like no other. Both have built and created brands and are now building an empire that started in Leslie’s living room. Calling these girls my friend is an understatement – they are more like the sister’s I never had and I am the lucky one to be part of their rich, inner circle.
