Free To Be.

Free To Be.

We shared this FREE Printable for the 4th of July and thought it a good idea to bring it back out today, on Presidents Day! There are so many amazing people who have served our great country, and we are so lucky for our freedom. Our freedom is something we often take for granted however, so we created this print as a reminder of all the things we are FREE to BE.
We believe that we all have the ability to make the world a better place by simply choosing kind, showing compassion, practicing acceptance & opening our hearts to the concept that love wins. We hope you all enjoyed this beautiful long weekend and out of respect for our great leaders, we suggest that you lead... kindly!

Love is EVERYTHING!

Love is EVERYTHING!

There is a quote in the movie "Dan in Real Life" that is really pretty brilliant.
"Love isn't a feeling... It is an ability."
We all have different "abilities" and excel in certain things. There are some things that are hard for people and easy for others. But the one ABILITY we ALL have deep in our souls is the ability to LOVE! Love is everything. So enable your ability to JUST LOVE!
Enjoy our free printable as a sign of our love and thanks to you!
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Love is Patient. LOVE IS.... KIND? Right? It sounds basic enough, but how do we truly grasp this concept? And does it work the other way? Kind is Love? We believe whole heartedly that the answer is YES! Love is kind and kind is love. But we will never deny that it isn't hard to love ourselves and others and be kind. But we believe that it is important to your overall happiness that you CHOOSE love & kindness and we are here to try and help you make choosing simple. We have both been down some dark and windy roads. There have been pitch black tunnels and waves of despair. But love and acts of kindness have been there to light the way and give us hope! We feel it is only fair that we share the light with each and every one of you ❤️
For the rest of 2017, we are going to have a "theme" for each month based on... YOU GUESSED IT! Love, kindness, positivity, and the things we celebrate about life! We will also be offering a FREE Calendar printable at the beginning of each month to show off our theme! This month our theme is LOVE (duh) & on top of the free Calendar and some other fun pop up freebies, our LOVE WINS kids tee, adult tee AND tank will be marked down! No coupon code needed. Just savings to spread the love!
Lastly, we invite YOU to share inspiring stories with us about LOVE. It can be a story about anything at all, as long as in the end, love wins 😉 We want to share your REAL life stories on our blog here, in hopes that we can inspire others to open their hearts to life's most basic need: LOVE. We will choose our favorite story each month and hand out a shop credit to the writer of said story!
We are so thankful for your support to make moving forward on our mission to change the world possible. We LOVE you! And we hope you know that we truly believe that together, we can make a real difference. Why? Because, sillies! KINDNESS CAN!

Love Always Wins

Love Always Wins

Even with all of the negativity concerning this election, it is bringing us all together. Someone is going to be elected President of the United States, and whether it is the person we voted for or not, it is our responsibility to respect the system, and respect that person. It is our duty in the name of our GREAT COUNTRY. It is our freedom! We are Americans. And we choose LOVE. Because love always wins.
Share it. Spread it. Print it. Love One Another. Always!

Raise Your Words.

Raise Your Words.

If you've been following us for any period of time, you know that we are all about spreading love and kindness to make the world just a little bit better. We are constantly posting about being kind and why you should be kind and how to be kind, and our hope is that seeing the positivity that radiates from the brand we have created will inspire people to feel HAPPY! Anyhow, while we pride ourselves on being super duper creative, we often rely on famous words and quotes to help us get what's on our hearts down on "paper."
So this morning I was perusing Pinterest per usual, looking for quotes about kindness, and came across this. It isn't often that something makes me stop and truly process, because I have severe ADHD and my brain isn't totally capable of that. UNLESS it's something really poignant or meaningful to me. There aren't very many ways to interpret this, but there is a lot to take into consideration. As a mother of 5, I try hard to choose being KIND over "choosing my battles". TRY is the key word. And it isn't always easy. It's actually really hard. But practicing patience is the most rewarding thing I do as a mother. I close my eyes, take a deep breath, count to 10 (amidst the screaming or crying or throwing or tackling) and tell myself: "Be who you needed when you were younger." I tell myself that yelling over the chaos isn't going to change their behavior or mindset or feelings. But practicing patience will teach my children that it isn't about what happens, but how you react to what happens that makes a difference.
I am not naive enough to think that by raising my words to a caliber of kindness over screaming to a level of insanity to get my point across is going to be as effective for my 3 and 1 year olds as it will be for my 5, 10 and 12 year olds. But my deep breath will show them that I care enough to think. And the softness in my voice will show them that I love them, even though I don't like how they're acting. I've been there. I understand. And we are going to get through this. 
We have all heard that you attract more bees with honey. And I think that while sometimes we should avoid attracting bees AKA negative energy and or people who bring us down, there is something to be said for this. And that is... that love and kindness win. Our children learn from the example we set for them. And in REAL life and in the REAL moment it's easier said than done to be patient. But it's worth the effort. The quality of your WORDS will make a bigger impact, teach a more important lesson, and show your children that you love them FAR more than throwing an adult version of a temper tantrum.
So. This week. Practice Patience with us. Take a deep breath. Count to 10. Open your eyes. Look past the noise and realize how blessed you are. Gratitude opens your heart and helps you be compassionate. And I think that no matter who we are voting for in the upcoming election there is one thing we can all agree on: We could all afford to have a little more compassion in our hearts. We are ALL, after all, human beings. And we all deserve LOVE!
So for whatever it's worth. Raise your WORDS. xxx & enjoy our free printable!
Love C&C

Bring on the waves!

Bring on the waves!

Most of us know this to be truer than true. Without hardships. Without rocky roads. Without dark tunnels. We wouldn't know how to overcome. Climb through. Find the light. A smooth sea makes no waves for adventure! We must always believe that there is a "bright side", and learn form each and every obstacle that's thrown our way. Enjoy! And. Be kind :)

A Warm Smile :)

Have you ever felt the warmth of a smile on a day when your heart is a little bit cold? When nothing seems to be going right? When you can't shake the bad news, or the mistake you made? If you have ever experienced the difference a smile can make, then do us a favor today. SMILE! Smile all day long and at every person you come in contact with. My sister had the most beautiful smile. She will always be remembered for it. And I know there are a lot of life goals floating around out there, but I there aren't many things more amazing than to be remembered for something as beautiful as a gorgeous smile (and a kind soul to boot!) #SmileForShannon today <3 And while you're at it... send her a Happy Birthday wish to Heaven.
Enjoy this printable from our smiling hearts to yours in honor of Shannon Eileen :)

The Kindness Boomerang Printable

The Kindness Boomerang Printable

So why The Kindness Boomerang you ask? Well here is why ...
ACCOUNTABILITY! We need to start holding ourselves accountable for our actions! Take a minute to think about your day. What did you do today? Did you just "get by" or did you do something that you are proud of? We believe there is a difference between being a good person simply because you aren't doing anything bad and being a good person because you are really trying to make the world a better place! We want you all to be those kind of good people! The kind that go out of there way for just a second to make someone else smile! We know you are those people because you are taking the time to come to our website, which most of the time talks about kindness in one way or another! ;) 
SO, now we're holding each other accountable. Let's really challenge each other to make a difference! Let's call each other out in the name of kindness! The more you do the more you will realize how easy it truly is. Holding a door, smiling at someone, picking up litter. These acts of kindness can take less than a second to make a difference so there are no excuses! Send your kindness boomerang out into the world and it WILL come back we promise! Somehow, someway, someday you will experience acts of kindness from someone else and hopefully it will make your day! 
We want to set you up with all the tools we can to be kind, so here is one to start! CS designed this amazing printable! Print it out and get creative! Write a nice note on the back of it, tie it to homemade cookies, leave it with a flower, whatever your heart desires! 
We hope you all get out there today and make a difference! Need help thinking of ideas? CLICK HERE! Want to learn more about The Kindness Boomerang? CLICK HERE!
