Hey, I’m Liz, and that’s me above between the two people I”m most grateful for. We live in rural America on what we like to think of as a modern homestead. Chickens, rabbits, fresh air, dirt roads—just a simple life.
Along with my husband, Tim, we homeschool Maisy, tend to a bunch of animals, and enjoy a pretty simple life. One that we’re grateful for.
Two things inspired us to start Gratitude Garb. A homeschool lesson for our daughter, and a desire to fight cystic fibrosis, a disease that afflicts a close friend.
One of the things we do in our homeschool is practice gratitude. To be conscious about the gifts we have been given. We write in our gratitude journal and we post on our gratitude wall.
There are so many things in life to be grateful for, from the big things (health and love) to the small things (walks and wildflowers).
Putting gratitude front and center in our lives keeps us and our daughter focused on all we do have, and not on the things we don’t have.
The Idea Behind Gratitude Garb
Gratitude Garb was born of the joy we feel by being grateful and expressing our gratitude. Our hope is to share that joy and to encourage others to spread the seeds of gratitude far and wide. Our motto explains how we hope to achieve that:
“Spreading gratitude by wearing gratitude.”
Here you’ll find exciting fashion designs from super-soft tees, hoodies, and hats for him, her, them, and the kids to fitted shirts and racerback tanks for the ladies. And you’ll find stylish home decor, backpacks, bags, and accessories to inspire gratitude in your home and wherever you go.
It is our belief that gratitude and thankfulness are the roots of happiness. We can’t imagine someone being both thankful and upset at the same time. But sometimes we all need a reminder to reflect and show our gratitude.
We have three aims with Gratitude Garb.
- The first is that we hope to inspire as many people as we can to prioritize gratitude and spread the gift of it to others. We hope to make the world a happier place.
- The second aim is we are building this family business with our daughter, teaching her the skills to conceive, start, and run a business. Teaching her how to be independent, confident, and as self-reliant as possible is a central part of our homeschool plan for her.
- The third aim is to raise as much money as we can to help fight cystic fibrosis. A friend of Maisy’s has this horrible but not widely understood disease, and we’ve seen the impact it has on our close friends.
By building and growing a business centered on the message of gratitude, we hope to achieve three beautiful ideals; inspiring people to be grateful, teaching our daughter independence, and helping to put an end to cystic fibrosis during the lifetime of our young friend.
