The last time my parents visited, I mentioned some books I had checked out from the library. The conversation that ensued revolved less around the books — and more around the fact that I have a library card. My mom said getting a library card is one of the last things you do when you’re “putting down roots.” In my mom’s opinion, getting a library card means you’re making where you live your home … and I think that’s true! Chris and I aren’t from Indiana, but it’s where we got married, bought a house, and where our baby will be born — it’s home!
With that in mind, I am so excited to partner up with United State of Indiana, a line of apparel and accessories with a focus on Indiana. Everything they carry is designed and made locally, and they’re making quite the splash around here. If you go take a walk downtown, chances are you’ll see someone sporting one of their “317” area code tees or their signature flag tank. I myself chose the This is Home Crest Tank after eyeing it for nearly a year. I first saw it last summer in the United State of Indiana booth at Fortville’s Bastille Days festival.
If you live in Indiana, be sure to check out United State of Indiana! Their tops make awesome gifts (for others AND yourself). The tank I received is printed on a unisex American Apparel top (those are the best!), and the printing is really great quality. I’ll be wearing it as much as possible this summer — until my bump gets too big!
