It's been about a week since our plane touched down in Providence, our return flight from our very first live—post covid, gift show. And not just any show, the Atlanta Market.

This is a short story of my daughter Taylor’s best friend Hope, and how she inspired our newest “love you” tee.

Optimism and a happy dance!

Optimism and a happy dance!

The news of late has been dark and scary to say the least.  Although we are watching and and worrying about the state of our world, we have reason today also to celebrate!

When Emily and I started our little company, all we really wanted to do was put “good design and good words” out into the world.
