What's with the name 'Two Seaside Babes'? TOP
Customers and fans ask me all of the time where the name "Two Seaside Babes" came from. When I was pregnant, my midwife would refer to my girls (clearly I have two) as babes, since fetus was obviously so impersonal. It's something that has pretty well stuck. Since then, I often use it as a term of endearment...my girls, beau, friends, family, customers, and fans. Indeed, if you are reading this, you are a babe. As for the "Seaside", I had been studying Aquatic Biology when I opened our shop and had an immense love of the Pacific Northwest at the time. So that's in a nutshell...the story behind the name Two Seaside Babes.
