DRINK | WEATHERED SOULS BREWING CO.
Based out of San Antonio, TX, Weathered Souls lets the brew do the talking. With local grains used in every draft, they also don't advertise, instead opting to impress each patron so that word of mouth will spread the news about the business. After one sip, you'll see why this strategy works. With options to order online if you're outside of Texas, they have choices ranging from light to dark to sour plus a special release every Thursday. Cheers!
CLEAN | PUR HOME
We like to know what goes into the products we use to clean our living and work spaces, and it's usually not a good sign when we have to google ingredients. PUR Home is natural, plant-based, eco-friendly and worry-free. With full breakdowns of everything in their bottles and bars, they offer something for every room in the house along with detergents and even all natural bug sprays. Less chemical - more clean.
FOLLOW | HADIYA WILLIAMS
Based in Washington DC, Hadiya Williams founded the design studio, Black Pepper Paperie Co. Her handmade pieces are one-of-a-kind, so if you see something you love, snag it while you can. She uses captivating patterns and combinations in her work, but you'll see for yourself when you head over to her Instagram and give her a follow.
LISTEN | CIRCLE ROUND
A podcast created for kids by WBUR, Circle Round brings us folklore from around the world, read by actors and singers like Lisa Loeb and Iain Armitage. Each episode helps explain and teach kids about kindness, generosity and care, while keeping them captivated through entertaining sounds and music. They also recently released activity pages, like Circle Round bingo to play while you listen, or drawing pages available on their site. They say it's perfect for ages 4-10, but we've enjoyed listening along with our kids so much that we call it perfect for all ages.
