Things Your Father Doesn't Know He Needs

Things Your Father Doesn't Know He Needs

My father is always thinking of what he can do for others, and he rarely ever asks for anything himself. With Father’s Day coming up, it can be difficult to know what to get him to show my appreciation.

Look for ways to improve the overall quality of his life, even if it’s a seemingly small part of his life. Getting him something that is functional and useful, can turn a small moment in his life into a meaningful experience each day.

The Meaningful Gesture of Heritage-Inspired Gifts

The Meaningful Gesture of Heritage-Inspired Gifts

In a time of gift-giving, we would all do well to consider a distinct and often overlooked avenue: giving gifts rooted in stories of ancestry and heritage. It isn’t about the glitz or glamour, but instead a deliberate nod to our roots and the stories ingrained in our lineage. When you give gifts inspired by heritage, each gift becomes an act not just of generosity, but of connecting with the essence of who we are and where we come from.

Spinning Stories with Dad

Spinning Stories with Dad

While giving the gift of an experience isn’t a new concept for many of you, we often get caught up thinking the experience has to be something grand, like tickets to an event or a trip. It’s not so much about providing an experience for your dad as it is about providing the opportunity for connection.

A Midsummer Menu

A Midsummer Menu

The day of everlasting light; of course it is a day to frolic through fields of flowers, weave flower crowns, and celebrate light. Midsummer has been celebrated in many ways for thousands of years as the longest day of the year. The further north you live, the longer the light lasts. Its a holiday that we love to celebrate and so we have created a collection of items and activities to help make your Midsummer's Eve magical.

In the Hope of a More Perfect Union

In the Hope of a More Perfect Union

Being a Boy Scout afforded me many opportunities for adventure, experiential learning, and service I otherwise wouldn’t have had. One service opportunity my troop was routinely in charge of was to set up an American flag in the front yard of every neighbor who wanted one on all the patriotic holidays. 

Read on to hear what I learned from this experience, the meaning behind our flag, and the holidays that celebrate it.

Movies with my Mom

Movies with my Mom

As we create memories together, we are creating something that money cannot buy. These shared experiences are the ones that I will treasure for a lifetime and that will continue to bring us closer together as the years go by.

Whether it's our first time watching a particular film or a beloved classic that we've seen too many times, watching it allows us to connect over and over again.

Being Friends with Bread

Being Friends with Bread

One of my takeaways from the course was that if I ever wanted to make my own bread, I ought to invest in a ceramic bread baker to get that hard crust and a supple interior we love in fresh bread.

Planning a Pub Night

Planning a Pub Night

We hope to help you learn how to create a pub night experience for your family and friends.

While it's good for any night, we are going to talk a bit about making it an experience the famed Irish holiday, that is celebrated with more zeal in America than in Ireland itself, St. Patrick's Day.
