The Meaning of our "Grateful Life" Tee + Card

There couldn’t be a more perfect time to talk about this shirt and card.

Leading a grateful life is important always, but is emphasized as we near Thanksgiving and the winter holidays.

This week, we’re giving you a little background on how these words play into our lives on a daily basis, and why we picked them to use in making our Heartward goods.


These two words together are important. I am ALWAYS telling my children how truly blessed they are and how they must lead a grateful life and be the most appreciative they can be for all they are given. 

Matt and I work our tails off. We have had to help many people in our families and so many “bumps in the road” have come up and we have just powered through them together, always staying super grateful for one another and the life we lead together.

I think that when you are grateful, you are living your best life. 

The Meaning of our "Happy Soul" Tee

I know we say it a lot, but it’s just the truth: everything we do at Heartward is tied to a mission.

We want to spread loving-kindness, we want to perpetuate positivity, and we want to encourage the little ones (and the adults) to go confidently in the direction of their heart.

This time, Heather is sharing with you her take on the “Happy Soul” tee. Read on to hear about one of her favorite family activities, and what Happy Soul means to her.

From Heather:

The “Happy Soul” tee and card remind of one of my absolute favorite things to do with my kids... ride on my Madsen Bike. I really do feel like a "Happy Soul" when we are riding our awesome bike around town. It’s so carefree and it’s one of the best ways to spend quality time with my girls.

We go to the beach, grocery store, and sometimes even to the store. My husband bought me the Madsen after Rose was born. He "rigged" up a contraption that would actually hold the baby seat! It saved me. Newborns are great and all but let’s be honest – they’re a little tough when you’re trying to go out and about.

I loved the fact that when Rose was fussy I could strap her onto the bike and we were off. It gave me a sense of freedom, and calmed her down. Also, it was something I could do with Ella Grace and the "new baby” which helped with sibling jealousy.

Our “Happy Soul” tee just takes me back to those moments riding, wind in face, warm low country air.

Being a happy soul isn’t about being happy all the time – we all know that’s not always possible. true happiness comes down to working with what you have, and making the best of your circumstances.

Sometimes, it helps to have a happy place to go back to – like my bike rides.

That’s what the “Happy Soul” tee is all about – staying positive, and finding that happy place.
