A Celebration of Everyday Heroes

Hello, friends! We hope you are all having a great week! We just wanted every single one of you to know how much we appreciate your support with our Everyday Hero 'project'. It has been so awesome meeting some of you and the people you consider everyday heroes. We love to meet people from all over - coast to coast! Reading these inspiring stories are the highlight of our week! We believe small things can turn into big things. Small acts of kindness can turn someone's day completely around. We all have all been there....having a bad day and BAM! Someone smiles at us, or opens our door, or offers to put our grocery cart away while we get kids in the car.  
These people in this picture are just a few of the everyday heroes we have met...and we hope to meet a lot more! 
Ready to nominate a hero of your own?  Head HERE and fill out our short survey. We are ready to celebrate the awesome people in your life!
XOXO, Brooke & Jess

Everyday Hero Spotlight - Sam G.

Hi everyone!! We hope you are having a fantastic week! Today, we had the opportunity to talk to Sam from Illinois! Sam's friend nominated her because she gives her heart to everyone she meets. She works with those who have special needs and truly has a heart of gold. She's an awesome mom, friend, caregiver, and more! We loved hearing what keeps her motivated and how she keeps up with the demands of each day (coffee and a smile!). Check out Sam and her beautiful, bright SMILE!

Everyday Hero Spotlight - Natalia

Natalia is a teacher we celebrated a few months ago, but we didn't get to interview her at the time. We LOVED hearing her story about how Covid had changed her as a teacher. She has had to get creative teaching her Special Education students online. We want to thank her friend, Christine, for nominating her! It was so eye-opening and such a pleasure to talk to them both! Teachers are 100% Everyday Heroes to us and many, many more.

Spotlight on Dads (Plus One REALLY Special Dad We Know)

We have been thinking about Father's Day a lot lately.  Some of us have a Dad we can call anytime. Some of us just have memories to hold on to. Some of us have uncles, grandfathers, or teachers who have been a fatherly influence. It's hard to not feel sentimental when we think of these great guys in our life.  They deserve to be celebrated!

Today we want to celebrate someone really special to us: Matt.  You may recognize him as one of our top models for Brooke & Jess :) Matt is Jess's husband. Hi, Matt!!!  I'm sure he's so embarrassed right now!

Matt is amazing for so many reasons. He's a great dad, husband, and friend.  But beyond that, he's such a champ!  He has been through a lot in his life and had handled it all with faith, humor, and positivity.  After a lifelong battle with a kidney disease, Matt is having a kidney transplant next week. He has been through so much.  From hearing loss to kidney failure, he never gives up and always manages to push though it all. We are so excited for this next chapter. What makes this even more amazing is that it's Matt's nephew who has been deemed a good kidney donor. Two amazing guys and one amazing story :)  So, here's to Matt!  His surgery is just days before Father's Day, but I have a feeling we will be celebrating him all year long! 

Do you have a person you are celebrating this Father's Day? Tell us about him! There are lots of amazing stories out there just waiting to be told!

XOXO,

Father's Day Spotlight

A Video Message From Us

Hi everyone! It's so hard to believe it's already June! Summer is here and Father's Day will be here before you know it.  We thought it would be fun to give some of our favorite Father's Day products a shout-out. Enjoy!

 

If you're like most of us, it can be SO hard to buy for the man in your life!  We are here to help with that!  We wanted to expand on our gifts for dads because they ARE hard to shop for. Ok, ok...dads are also awesome and amazing and deserve cool things too :) We have a variety of gifts that range from functional to funny.  Need more ideas? Check these out!

XOXO, Brooke and Jess

Father's Day Thank-You and Gift Ideas

Ahhhh Dads...forever making socks with sandals look cool :) OK, not ALL dads can pull off the sock and sandal combo, but to those who can, we salute you! 

It's hard to think of Father's Day and not think of the endless 'Dad Jokes' they know. Somehow, when a man becomes a dad, he is gifted with the ability to tell some amazing dad jokes.  Have you heard this one?

 

Dads are funny.  They are hard-working. They aren't afraid to get their hands dirty. From wrestling with the kids to teaching them how to ride a bike...the role of a dad is so important. Without dads, we wouldn't have someone to build an awesome fort with, someone to teach us how to change a flat tire, or to turn an ordinary activity into a game. Hot lava anyone?!

Speaking of games...have you ever hear of the game 'Who Farted'? No? Just our house??  Let's be honest. Dads fart. They fart a lot.  Of course we had to create a mug dedicated to all the 'Farters' out there :)

*click on the picture for details

These new and improved tumblers all come with a spill resistant clear lid with straw hole and MAGNETIC SLIDE COVER. The magnetic slider is removable for easy cleaning! It can be used with or without a straw!

Need more gift ideas? Check these out!

We are looking forward to Father's Day this year! To all the dads, uncles, grandfathers, brothers, and all the male role models out there - we are so excited to celebrate you!  :)

XOXO,

Brooke Braithwaite
