Have a Wonderful Weekend

public.jpeg

What are you up to this weekend? We’re heading into the weekend feeling excited and optimistic. We have a second showing on the renovation house and we pick the kids up tonight for a few days! Also, it’s Friday the 13th AND a full moon, which apparently only 1% of full moons fall on Friday the 13th. Crazy, huh?

Though we normally like to take it easy on Friday’s, today is a busy one, with three YouTube videos and campaigns to shoot, a closing (we’re purchasing a piece of land connected to our big-project land so that everything is connected), a few orders to do for our apparel, and maybe finding some time to squeeze in a workout. We’ll see about that last one, though 😉.

We hope you have a great weekend, friend!!! xoxo

PS: a very good, interesting read.

September 11th, 2001

It’s hard to believe it’s been 18 years. We’re sending love to all of the friends and family of the people who were taken too soon, and to everyone affected by that senseless tragedy.

Hugging our loved ones a little closer today and forever remembering those we lost on September 11th, 2001. 🇺🇸

Found: Our New Favorite Hair Products

Found: Our New Favorite Hair Products

One of the most common questions we get has to do with what we do to our hair and what we put in it. We used to use so many different products that had frustratingly different results- almost daily. Luckily, we’ve finally found a men’s care brand that we love and that wields the same results every time.

One of Our Favorite Books is Being Turned Into a Movie!

public.jpeg

Have you read The Art of Racing in the Rain? It came out in 2008 and Thomas read it a few years back and hasn’t stopped thinking about it since. We were shocked/so excited when we saw the trailer for it on TV the other day! We had no idea it was being turned into a film, and now suddenly August 9 (this Friday!) can’t come soon enough.

The book is about a racecar driver, Denny, and his life with his wife and daughter, but it’s told through the eyes of his hilarious, smart, and sometimes too-serious dog, Enzo. It’s heartbreaking, and you’ll cry and you’ll laugh and you’ll cheer them both on and omg THE ENDING and ahhhh it’s so good.

Usually movie adaptations aren’t even close to be as good as the source material, but it’ll be neat to see the story come to life, and Milo Ventimiglia playing Denny doesn’t hurt either 😍.
