What's in a Name?

We have a lot of people wonder where the heck we came up with our blog name. So here's the story!

We met in an online community for women who were pregnant and expecting in September of 2008. We've maintained a friendship through our pregnancies and throughout our toddler's lives. Coincidentally, we gave birth on the same day so our toddlers share a birthday!

We chat online daily and via email. We discovered that we both shared a love of sewing and quilting and general craftiness and Bree asked me one day if I would like to do a blog with her, and of course I said yes! 

When trying to come up with a name, we asked a lot of our other "friends-in-a-box" for suggestions but Bree ultimately came up with Distant Pickles. Her reasoning? We met when we were pregnant and pregnant women like pickles, and because we are distant from each other, physically of course. She lives two states away.

So Distant Pickles was born!

One day we hope to be Not so Distant Pickles. That's right, we've never actually met. Don't worry, when we do you guys will be one of the first to know!
