Welcome to 2Geechee Girls! - About Us

Hey ya’ll, it’s day two and once again welcome to 2Geechee girls! We are two sisters born and raised in Northern, NJ the “Garden State”, which we truly love. What's so good about Jersey, you say? Well we’ll tell you.

(1)We have all four seasons,(2)24 hour diners, just about anywhere you can think of, (3)Delicious Jersey tomatoes, (4) Some of the best local, national and international cuisine, (5) We got your pick of where to live, city, suburb, country or even down-the-shore, (6) We are responsible for some of the best fine & performing artist in the business, Count Bassie, Jon Bon Jovi, Carole King, Frank Sinatra, Queen Latifah, Bruce Springsteen, Wyclef Jean and Whitney Houston, to name a few, and(7) depending on where you live, we are just 30 minutes from the Big Apple.

That’s what so good about Jersey. Heck No wonder our taxes are high!

However, let's get back to our introduction. Vanessa or "V" as she is affectionately known is the eldest and I, Coy am the baby that acts older. You know how that goes, right? We are just 15 months apart and up until the ages of 4 and 5 I'm pretty sure everyone thought we were twins, because we were dressed alike quite often by our mom. V is a true Baby Boomer (born 1963) and I am an on the cusp Generation X'er (born 1965.) I get to enjoy the best of both generations, ha!

V and I are sistahs through and through. She is the up to my down, the in to my out and the flip to my flop. We have incredible husbands and fantastic little people we call our seeds. We are about being our best, celebrating our likes and our differences, which ultimately make us who we are. It's been a long time coming but we really love how the cakes of our lives have turned out. They may be a little uneven on one side, and burnt around the edges, but once you cover it with “icing” which is “the love of life”, it's all good!

We have learned some life lessons, gained some nuggets of truth, and found some life principles and laws to live by that have made us better at being who we are and it is our pleasure to share them with you. We think blogging is a great way to express yourself and hopefully our expression will entertain, encourage, enlighten, and most of all empower you to become the best you, you can be!

Well, I'm sure that is enough for now. BTW, did I tell you I'm wordy as heck, hmmm, my bad. No worries though. Entries won't always be this length. We look forward to doing some cool and interesting things with this blog. In a way we hope compels you to respond and share.

So say something back, visit daily and "Get Your Geech On" with V and me!
