Mud – it’s wet, dirty, sludgy, and sometimes even a little stinky.
We cringe when it’s tracked into our homes and we beeline for the washer as soon as it gets on our clothes.
While jumping in puddles is irresistible as a kid, the older we get, the more and more we seem to side-step.
But perhaps we have it all wrong. Maybe mud isn’t so bad…except where it’s a “season” that goes on for far too long.
So this spring we’re trying something new; We’re lacing up our shoes and enlisting the company of a running crew.
It’s only day two, but thanks to a little help from Toto, the sky isn’t looking so blue.
We’re finally in the swing of things; We’ve perfected our gait and we’ve even chosen a mud run team name – “Law and Odor,” now tell us that isn’t great!
So before you sigh, saying “oh gross, I got mud on my shoes,” grab your brother, your sister, your girlfriend, heck, even your mother, and tell them the news.
You’ve signed everyone up for a mud run, and you’ve even designed muddy team tees to add to the fun!
We’ve all been there before, so we all understand how “meeting the family” can be a nerve-racking event.
While some of us spend countless hours picking out the perfect outfit and rehearsing the right thing to say, this grandmother cut to the chase, knowing just what to do!
The night before her daughter’s wedding, she surprised not only her granddaughters with wedding team shirts but also her soon-to-be grandsons AND their grandmother! With the help of their personalized team bride t-shirts, the kiddos quickly warmed up to one another, and soon they were one big, happy family.

So, grab your beanies, a trusty teammate or two, choose that perfect cornhole team name (the cornier the better), and get ready to unleash your inner cornado. What’s that you say? You’ve never played before?! Fret not – here’s a handy-dandy how-to sure to clear up any cornfusion.
In celebration of National Small Business Week, we’re highlighting some of the many small business customers we have the pleasure of working with each and every day. Our final highlighted business is Land Effects.
Ben, owner of Land Effects, a small custom landscape design and professional maintenance business in southern Virginia, has a busy summer ahead of him. He and his crew work hard to provide beautiful and well manicured landscaping for their clients. While the work can be tough, he has three adorable kiddos proudly wearing his company tee to help cheer him along.
A big thanks to you and your crew for all of the hard work you do. Happy National Small Business Week!
