Warm weather is here and school is out for the summer, what’s on your summer bucket list this year? Are you headed to the beach, out camping or planning a picnic? Will you watch the sunset, get a pedicure or have a movie marathon? Whatever type of adventure is in your future, we can almost guarantee our friends Ellie and Jared Mecham have done it and we’re helping you get to know them a little better in this month’s blog post.
PEOPLE WE LOVE
Ellie and Jared are long time lovers of Beddy’s and we are long time lovers of them! On their individual social media pages and joint family YouTube channel, they are always up to something and they make sure to document it for all of us to enjoy. They are not all fun and games over there though, and have become popular due in a large part to the tough topics they’ve chosen to tackle. From struggling with anxiety to challenges with infertility, this dynamic duo show they can handle anything that comes their way and we love them all the more for it.
Shortly after marrying, Ellie and Jared knew they wanted a family but unfortunately it wasn’t as easy as they had hoped. After many years, doctors and treatments, they welcomed their first son, and years after that, two more baby boys. And although life wasn't exactly what they wanted it, when they wanted it, they show us that finding joy in the journey is possible. Loving life and laughter is at the heart of everything they do. And not only is Ellie a busy mom of three boys, but she's also a boss babe and owner and designer of a loungewear business. They remind us all to never give up and show us the way in creating for ourselves, the lives we desire.
For more on their journey, make sure to follow along on their social channels.
TIPS WE LOVE
When it came time to pick bedding for their three boys’ rooms, Beddy’s were a no-brainer. It’s no secret that kids sleep better with Beddy’s. The quality and comfort are unmatchable, but the ability to zip your kids in at night, also helps keep them from falling out of the bed and keeps the covers on them so no more waking up cold. And when kids stay asleep, so can mom and dad - and what is better than that? 😉
What Ellie really loves about Beddy’s and we know you would agree, kids can now make the bed by themselves like never before. No more pulling, tugging or tucking and most importantly - no more scraped-up knuckles. With two simple zips the bed is made and there is one less chore to do.
Beddy's are not just for kids though, Beddy's are a dream for the young ones learning this skill for the first time, and the young-at-heart who may have lost their ability to do it for themselves. It even makes it possible for some children with special needs to be able to do this chore for themselves. Not only does this provide the independence everyone craves, it also gives them a boost to their confidence knowing they made their own bed all by themselves.
Don't Beddy's sound like the perfect gift? They really are AND they are the gift that keeps on giving too! Beddy's helps with a better night's sleep and ensures a smoother morning. Sounds too good to be true, we assure you it's not! With the genius design and functionality of a zipper, Beddy's are perfect for any age, including yourself, so #treatyoself and get ready to give the gift that keeps on giving ALL. YEAR. LONG.
