Motivation comes in many forms. Experiences and influences without and within drive us to do what we do. Sure we want to look good, but we want more than that. We want purpose, intentionality, something meaningful behind what we do, buy, and experience. Even though this coffee drink looks amazing, there’s more to it than […]
Ok, I know that isn’t how the “dad” saying goes. I live with a dad who is constantly coming up with new twists on old phrases. It’s just kind of rubbed off on me. Seriously, though, this recipe is just the thing to bridge the civilian and military kitchens. It’s not quite simple enough that […]

An order came in today that made me so happy. Not the order specifically, but the note from the customer who placed the order: Her words spoke specifically to why I create 2MyHero cards.
