How is it that I am able to run a business and be a full time student? There is one clear answer: God's gracious self. It just amazes me mainly because it was something I never imagined being able to do. I am SO blessed to be able to do both! Speaking of running a business, did y'all see my exciting news today? That's right, Southern and Thankful launched a new shirt, and it just may be my favorite one yet!! Ahhhhh I mean I am so pleased with the way it turned out!! This shirt is titled "Thankful for Hot Cocoa" for a number of reasons.
1. The Holidays are fast approaching, which means so are the winter months. Hot Cocoa is only appropriate! I did not want to do a Christmas themed shirt because I wanted to design something you could wear well past December 25th! But with that being said, I did launch them just in time in case you need a last minute Christmas gift!
2. When I go to Starbucks in the winter I order Hot Cocoa. Again, it is only appropriate! I am also not a fan of coffee, so it was pretty easy to narrow down!
3. Hot Cocoa is one of those things that a majority of us consume during this time of year, but I am willing to bet none of you ever stop to thank God for it. I mean I don't either so I figured it was about time!
4. Few beverages are as engrained in Americans’ childhood memories quite like hot chocolate. It’s a drink that reminds us of snow days, sledding, or a quiet day watching the snow fall.
Scroll down a little and you will see some photos of these sweet new shirts! They are sold in two different colors, and they are both comfort colors (DUH).

AND, don't forget that Brown Bag in Fort Worth is carrying them AND Coker Hampton in Stuttgart. For more on those stores please visit: http://www.southernandthankful.com/clothing.html
Also, don't forget that when you buy a shirt a portion of the proceeds will go to a very special organization at the end of this month! I already have one in mind that I think you all will also be excited about. So even if you purchase a Southern and Thankful for Hot Cocoa shirt as a gift for someone, you are still helping someone else who needs it. Double giving? How great is that?!
Huge thank you to my loving family for helping me accomplish these goals, and thank you to all of those who have supported and encouraged this venture! If you don't have a Southern and Thankful shirt, I can't think of a better first first OR a better first time to wear yours. Being Southern and Thankful as we go through Christmas and end 2015 is one of the best things to be in my opinion!
I hope you all enjoy them and represent this brand in all the best ways. Oh and I also hope you put on this new shirt, fill your mug with hot cocoa, and be thankful for everything around you at some point before the year ends!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way. A recent graduate from Texas Christian University who loves any creative insta post, all donuts, and dress pants that make you do a double take. I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
