Life is Good

That’s my motto for this year. In fact, it’s my whole family’s motto for the year.

Have you heard about Jake and
the Life is Good Company?


It’s a great story that goes something like this:

Two brothers sold T-shirts out of the back of their van and ate PB & J sandwiches in the early 1990’s until they created optimistic Jake, who rose to popularity and the rest is history.

Their motto:

Life is Good

Spreading the Power of Optimism

I love this.     Sooooo,
everyone in my family received a Life is Good shirt for Christmas along with the declared family theme of “Life is Good in 2012”.  Yes, everyone.  Kids, in-laws, grandparents, and grandbaby.  They have clothes and accessories for everybody. 

Even Murphy, our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, had a Life is Good collar and leash in his stocking!

You can visit their website, Life is Good here and read about their story here.
Everything is so positive and uplifting.




This yearly family theme idea began when I gave all the family vintage McCoy happy face mugs for Christmas in 2010 and they were all told to be happy in 2011. I probably gave away 15 as gifts that year.

Thus, our last year’s theme:

Be Happy in 2011

I’m already wondering what the theme for 2013 should be.

I’m thinking maybe:

Give Back in 2013

I could use Toms shoes as gifts for this  Christmas since they donate a pair of shoes to someone in need every time you buy a pair. “One for One” is their motto.  I’m sure most of you are familiar with this brand. We already own some Toms, but I could still get everyone a new pair.

What do you think? Do you have any ideas? What theme could your family have for next year?

Something to think about.

Blessings,

Those smiley face mugs really bring back memories. Great idea for themes. I'd say ours would be "Follow your dreams". My youngest son will be a senior in High School, and my oldest just started his studies in Television and Film.

I love the idea of having a family theme each year! I'd better start thinking of one for next Christmas. ~ Maureen
