Hope loves you. And so do we.
Is there anything more important than a true friend? I am lucky to have a handful, and as my brother Tim often said before he passed, if you can hold up your hand and count a true friend for every finger then you have it all. He was right. This is a short story of my daughter Taylor’s best friend Hope, and how she inspired our newest “love you” tee.
One night after a home swim meet, we all went to dinner. She was asking about 2021 Co. and about our mission and we started brainstorming tee shirt ideas. Hope got up to use the restroom and when she bounced back towards our booth, she blurted out “What about a shirt that says, ‘I love you’ and that is it."
She went on to explain what many of us who have lived longer than she already know—that we are here for love. That love itself; the giving and receiving it is indeed the meaning and mission in life.
How simple, true and powerful.
That is how this tee came to be. An idea from the kindest college girl you could ever meet. A girl who is the first to cheer on the last swimmer, to flash a smile to anyone and everyone she meets and who belly laughs generously until she snorts.
We hope that you will love this shirt as much as we do. Everyone deserves to be loved and to also know how important it is to love yourself.
