If you live in Kansas City, today it felt like we were the center of the universe! The Kansas City Royals won the 2015 World Series (congrats BOYS IN BLUE!) and today was the celebration parade. Literally, there were people EVERYWHERE; the entire city celebrated: schools were out, courts shortened their sessions, the public buses were free...it was a good day to call ourselves Kansas Citians.
The Royals won on Sunday and from the minute the game was called in the middle of the night, fans all over the city were rushing to buy Royals gear: t-shirts, hoodies, sweats, hats, pennants, flags, beads, socks...everything! BUT WHY? Today, all the streets were covered in BLUE. BUT WHY? What's the point of having a royals hat, or hoodie or tee? There were people calling to order our Royals inspired merch to wear to the parade. BUT WHY? There's a good reason; it has to do with the unity and togetherness shown among the city today. I think things like tees and hoodies aid in doing so. It allows us to show some commonality. Without words, we can visibly show that there is shared intent, goal, or belief among ourselves. Simultaneously, t-shirts, hats and hoodies offer a token of memorabilia to our special moments. Reminders that, "we were there when..." or "that time we did...." Today, I heard a man telling a story about a Royals jacket that he had as a boy in 1985 when the Royals last won the World Series. His son wore it today at the 2015 Royals World Series Parade. WOW!
Today, wearing our blue, we were apart of something. We were apart of baseball history and showing the world that this little mid-western city is unified and bigger in spirit than anyone ever thought.
Yeah, its more than just a t-shirt.
I don't know if you heard, but the KC Royals are in the World Series (again)! If you don't live in KC you probably have not experience anything like a Blue October. its something truly out of this world! From blue tshirts, to blue hair to blue cars to blue fountains, all in honor of the Royals. Kansas City loves the royals and so does Blessed. Tonight is Game 1 of the series and Blessed will be cheering on the Royals with the rest of the city. Be sure to check out our LIMITED EDITION ROYALS INSPIRED BLESSED HOODIE AND TSHIRT. In honor of Game 1, customers that purchase a Royal inspired tee or hoodie during the World Series will receive 10% off of their next purchase....I got mine! LET'S GO ROYALS!
Fall is here and winter will be quickly approaching. That means the holiday season will be upon us in no time. Along, with the beautiful fall leaves, sweet snacks and awesome meals and gift giving, comes a busyness that usually can't be avoided. We have be remember that within errand running and pumpkin carving there is blessing. When things are hectic, be grateful that there are things to be hectic about. How could you appreciate the peace without a storm? or the quiet without noise? rest without stress? Today, I looked at the colors of the leaves and appreciated the new colors emerging: orange, deep reds and yellows. I thought about gratefulness and blessings. Remember there are blessings in the old colors and the new colors, the good and the bad, the busy and the still.
