To the inventors of the “dad joke”, we salute you! Happy Father’s Day!

Every Father’s Day, we celebrate our dads. We recognize all the things they do for us. We recognize the example they set through their work ethic, their character, their strength, their patience, and their love. In short, we celebrate the best qualities that dads have to offer. But are we leaving something out? Are we forgetting to appreciate the most revered, time-honored aspect of all time? We’re referring to, of course, The Dad Joke. Dad Jokes, as you know, fall under the “so bad it’s good” category of humor, a much-beloved tradition of dads everywhere. So, in honor of Father’s […]

Remember and Honor

When you were young, you may have asked your parents why we observe Memorial Day. While some people use it as a chance to throw a backyard BBQ, others take the time to visit cemeteries, pour over old photographs, or read the stories of those who died serving our country. “But why?” It seems like such a sad holiday. Why do we do it? We’d like to show you something you’ll never forget. It’s a speech given by President Dwight Eisenhower – and if there’s any president who understood the “why” of Memorial Day, it was surely Ike. It’s an […]

Navigating Turbulent Times

Remember when you were learning to drive, how new and scary it could be? The first time you merged onto the freeway; the first time you switched lanes during heavy rush hour traffic; the first time you parallel-parked on a busy street; the first time you drove in heavy rain or in the snow.   Eventually, though, each of these became easier and less stressful, to the point that they became second nature. After all, you’d seen it all before. You’d done it all before. You’d experienced it and lived to tell the tale. No matter what bumps in the road […]

A Mother’s Work Is Never Done

A mother’s work is never done, never easy, and never celebrated enough. It’s not uncommon to hear people describe their mom as “The Best Mom Ever” and proudly present her with a coffee cup or offer to inscribe her name on a trophy.

For that reason, this year we want to try to honor all the ways this complicated day affects people. For some, this is your first Mother’s Day without your mom. We’ve heard so many stories of loss this […]
