  • Throwback Thursday -- Show Hope & Family Fest

    Hey guys! I'm so excited to be introducing a new series today, Live It Everyday's very own Throwback Thursday! Each Thursday, we're going to have a post here that is in some way a throwback for our company! We love the idea of looking back and meditating and just generally laughing at ourselves and how we used to think that we could print our own shirts in our garage. Ya live and ya learn.

    Today, I'm so excited (I know, lots of excitement) to also introduce you to our brand spanking new YouTube channel! We were thrilled to be able to shoot this video at Show Hope's Family Fest this summer and we're more than ecstatic to share that video and some sweet photos with you today!

    The music was obviously great. Though we didn't get to meet Steven, it was such an experience getting to see him perform and interact with the crowd! And yes, that man on the far right does have his head painted. These people are cool.

    The Red Bus Project is an awesome part of what Show Hope does. It's a rolling consignment store and travels to different events, but mainly college campuses. They've visited my University in Murray, Kentucky! It was so exciting. LiveIE-ShowHope-74

    You know, drumsticks.

    Watching myself on this video is KIND OF terrifying. It was my first time doing anything like it and there was DEFINITELY a huge learning curve. The good news is, is that we had an incredible videographer, John, who really walked me through how to not blink a zillion times...it didn't work out as well as we'd hoped (whoops!)! Hope you guys love it!

  • A Weekend Recap -- Show Hope's Family Fest

    Happy Monday! It seems like we hardly got a break this weekend! We had a ton going on, but all of it was so exciting! On Saturday, Adriane (Owner & CFO) and I got to travel to Nashville, TN to visit Show Hope, a charity that we work with! It was such a great event and we loved every second of it! Especially the ice cream when we were so hot, we thought we'd melt.

    Here are some sneak peak photos from the event; we'll have more up this week and a couple of other surprises from the day. Hope you guys have a great Monday! SHFF 1 We loved getting to meet Mary Beth Chapman, President and Co-Founder of Show Hope! Also Steven Curtis Chapman's wife. She's literally the coolest person.

    SHFF 2Don't mind us; we're just trying to find any way possible to cool off.

    SHFF 3 This is a hint for our surprise later this week... (Do I look cross eyed in this picture? Maybe...)SHFF 5What good is a family fest without a proper photo booth? I was laughing so hard, I could hardly smile!

    What were you guys up to this weekend? Leave us a comment!

  • Family Events Are The Best Events

    You guys! So much exciting news!

    We've talked a little before about the charities that we work with. By now, you probably know that 11% of each sale goes to a charity that is in the same category of the design that was purchased. Homes For Our Troops was featured earlier this week (here and here) as we enter into the season of celebrating our great nation on the Fourth.

    Today, though, I have some exciting news. News that makes me want to jump up and down. Seriously, people. Get. Excited.

    Every year, Show Hope, an organization that benefits from our world peace designs (you can click at the bottom of the post!) host a Family Fest in honor of Steven Curtis and Mary Beth Chapman's (the president and vice president of the organization) daughter, Maria Sue, who passed a way a six years ago. And guess what? We're going! We're going and we encourage you all to head out to the day of fun planned in Nashville, Tennessee! Click here for all of the details and plans for fun!

    Here are the designs that support Show Hope!
