May I be honest with you? I really, really love when a miracle happens and especially when I’m not expecting it and it just shows up? I think it’s the coolest thing EVER!
We’ve had a miracle at my house and it’s come with a lot of hard work and really stepping out of our comfort zone (but, we seem to be good at that) and it requires a huge amount of faith and trust, which I have to say is always the hardest part.
Why is it so hard for us humans to trust a miracle? If you have an answer, please share it in the comments below.
If you’ve been hanging out with me for a while then you might remember part of this story. Last October my husband was anything but happy, and it was breaking my heart to see him like this. It was all work related and finally I told him he had to quit. He’s not a quitter, but it was getting bad.
He looked right at me and said, “What will I do?” And in a very nonchalant way I replied, “Something will happen.” (I had no idea what I was talking about or even that it would happen.)
My man is very creative and he painted to soothe his worry, I think.
In Mid-October 2015, we were at Mellow Mushroom having a quick pizza and this guy walked by wearing a cool looking shirt. I asked him where he got it and he said that his wife made it.
I could see my husband’s head jump into creative mode. His creative brain never rests. He looked at me and said, “I can make you a shirt like that.” How I wondered? How do you know how to do that?
Two days later, I had my shirt and it was so different from any flannel I had seen before.
Well…the rest is history. We began selling the flannels in Downtown Franklin. Today, you’ll find them at The Barn Door – one of the best shops in all of Franklin. Really…it is.
In December we put up a Facebook page and started an Instagram account and things took off. We began getting requests for shirts and Franklin Flannels was born!
Four months later we’ve filled wholesale orders and sold hundreds of shirts to happy customers all over the USA! We have an online store for individual orders and we just launched our very first Franklin Flannels website!
It’s a family business and we feel truly blessed to be supported by our community.
Franklin Flannels are distressed, ombre-style vintage 100% cotton flannel shirts and they’re unisex sizes. Each shirt is lovingly hand-done and no shirt is the same. They are without a doubt the softest, coziest shirt you’ll ever wear. I hardly ever take mine off and the other day a lady was petting my shirt in Sprouts! And then…she bought it off my back. I’m not kidding.
Not only do we have shirts for adults, but we also have Tiny Person Franklin Flannels. They are beyond adorable.
I’d love for you to visit Franklin Flannels and check them out. They’re fun. Come on home to Franklin Flannels, y’all!

We don’t know what the future looks like, because no one ever does…but I can tell you this…sometimes when you least expect it, God throws you a Hail Mary pass and when that happens, you better be ready for the run of your life and faith better be the light that guides your path.
See…I told you it was miracle.
