Every new day is another chance to change your life.


Tomorrow is a blank page, just waiting to be filled with your dreams. The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place. Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Continue to learn. Appreciate your family and friends. Do what you love. Live as if there is no tomorrow. Life is about the unknown, implementing change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what will happen next. All you have to do is be yourself and live the story of your own unique life. Be proud. Be confident. Be happy.

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed – else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die. ~Dwight D. Eisenhower


It’s time to take a few minutes out of your 4th of July holiday festivities to thank all the men and women who are defending our freedom — and the families that support them. Freedom is never free. God Bless America and Happy 4th of July from BrandLove, LLC!

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”


I believe this is a quote paraphrased by Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson from the original words of Gandhi, “We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.”  Sounds a bit more philosophical and true to what Gandhi would say about personal and social transformation, but nonetheless, I love this image and the modern-day version of the quote.

A Father’s Day Tribute to All The Dads


 Did you know that the first Father’s Day was observed in Spokane, Washington, in 1910? Sonora Louise Smart Dodd first proposed the idea of a “Father’s Day” in 1909. Mrs. Dodd wanted a special day to honor her father, William Smart, who was widowed when his wife died in childbirth with their sixth child. Mr. Smart was left to raise the newborn and his other five children by himself.

Mrs. Dodd wanted Father’s Day to be celebrated on the first Sunday in June, her father’s birthday. However, the Spokane council couldn’t get the resolution through the first reading until the third Sunday in June. Over the next decade, cities across America began celebrating a day for fathers and in 1924 President Calvin Coolidge supported the idea of a national Father’s Day. It wasn’t until 1966 that President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father’s Day.

In 1972, President Richard Nixon established a permanent national observance of Father’s Day to be held on the third Sunday of June. This came almost sixty years after Mother’s Day had been proclaimed a National day of observance. Feel free to pay a tribute to your Dad in the comments section. Happy Father’s Day from BrandLove, LLC!

What is a Dad?

A Dad is a person
who is loving and kind,
And often he knows
what you have on your mind.

He’s someone who listens,
suggests, and defends
A dad can be one
of your very best friends!

He’s proud of your triumphs
but when things go wrong
A dad can be patient
and helpful and strong.

In all that you do,
a dad’s love plays a part
There’s always a place for him
deep in your heart.

And each year that passes
You’re even more glad,
More grateful and proud
just to call him your dad!

Thank you, Dad
for listening and caring
for giving and sharing
but, especially, for just being you!
Happy Father’s Day
