In Mexico, today is Día de los Muertos (or “Day of the Dead”)—a holiday where families come together to have an open Día’lect with their ancestors who have passed. People prepare elaborate altars to invite their deceased relatives back home for a visit. As a two-day fiesta filled with food, family, and friends, this altar’nate form of honoring ancestors really is an I’Día worth sharing.
Marigolds, with their bright petals and strong scent, are believed to guide the souls of the deceased back home.
Sugar skulls and other treats are ready to feed the souls of the nearest and Día’rest once they arrive.
In hopes of Día’ling in on Mexico and its vibrant culture, Traveler Jill brought back a piece of the country to share with you too…
Here’s to a world of i’Días worth sharing and to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

It’s Feel Good Friday and we got some good news for ya! So which do you want first… the good news… or more good news?
Good news: We’re so excited to announce that we’ve been given the green light to start making totes again! (Back in April, we were deemed non-essential so we had to stop tote production due to the Governor’s COVID orders).
More good news: For the past 3 months, we turned our attention to making face masks for our customers and donating face masks to hospital workers (don't worry, we didn’t go into hibernation mode. If anything, we got busier producing all these face masks).
Tis the sea-sun as summer is officially here! We’re feeling pretty shore that it’s going to be a great summer! Here’s to shell-abrating good times with great people..
