With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought it was only fitting to kick off the month of love with these stylish and oh so comfy “Love Is Spoken Here” shirts, designed by my incredibly talented friend, Kimberly Alsheimer! Kimmy is the founder of Drift Design Co. and she’s literally the BEST of the best when it comes to all things graphic design, art and handlettering! Collaborating with her on the blog today was a no brainer for me. I genuinely love and admire every single thing this girl does and these beauties are no exception!
My favorite thing about these shirts is the message they promote and how eye catching they are (Kimmy handlettered the text herself and it is so unique and gorgeous)! In the world we live in today, there’s a whole lot of hatred, discord and hopelessness. So much negativity surrounds us on a regular basis and it can very discouraging and overwhelming at times. But when we fight against the negativity, extending kindness, grace, and compassion towards those around us, it is not only life giving to us, but it can have such a tremendous impact on others. I don’t know about you, but I am constantly in need of the reminder that my life is not my own, and that it belongs to God. If I will just fully submit to His will, He can use my imperfect mess of a person, to bless others and to bring Him ultimate glory. So whenever I wear this shirt, it reminds me to always speak in love, share the hope I have in Christ and to be a safe place for broken people.
Another thing I love about these shirts is that they are SO comfortable! They’re made with soft triblend heather fabrication, so basically they’re legit and you’ll want to wear them all the time because of how amazing they feel. I also love the fact that there are two different versions of this design available! I’m always looking for ways that my hubby and I can match, without it being too matchy matchy and weird. So the unisex black on grey tee (that my handsome hunk is modeling for you all so well) and the ladies white on grey tee, give us both a bit of differentiation when we wear them. I personally think that these would make fantastic Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day gifts, so I wanted to get them up on the blog as quick as possible so that you all can snag one before it’s too late!
If we are all being honest, we know that it can be pretty darn difficult at times to live a life of love towards others. It isn’t easy and can sometimes be exhausting. But praise God for His unending faithfulness to equip us with the strength and genuine desire to love, as we fix our eyes on Him and pursue His will fully. He is the only hope we have for treating others in the best way and He is the true and only hope we can give to others, as we show them kindness and speak to them in love.
So how about we share lots of love today and let’s make a difference in this world? Sound good to you?! And speaking of sending love, be sure to love on my girl Kimmy today! Whether you grab one of these awesome shirts, a stunning art piece or just send some encouragement her way, I know she would really appreciate it so much. You can find her on Instagram @driftdesignco

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. 10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.12 No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.
