Our American Roots

A proud American manufacturer.

A proud American manufacturer.

usa-flag.jpgDuring this time of the year with all the barbeques, fireworks, apple pies, and small-town parades that feature one lame local advertisement after another (did I just say that?),  it’s easy to look over the reason for the wonderful holiday we’ve reduced to “The 4th of July,” or INDEPENDENCE DAY as I prefer to call it.

This is a great country. Not only have any of my grandparents and long-past relatives fought for the freedoms and liberty we have, but I’ve been blessed with the ability to be raised in this beautiful country—diverse and unique as it is.

From the very beginning, it’s been a country of promise and opportunity for many—and, from our founding, Lifetime Products has been a proud American manufacturer.

Like many before us, and during our beginnings, we started out in a family garage in Utah. As we’ve grown, we’ve seen the benefits of being a U.S.-based company. From the many people we’ve been able to employ, the boost that local manufacturing has on the economy, and more.

I think I can safely say that Lifetime, as a large family corporation, feels just as strongly about this country as I personally do. It’s been my pleasure to listen to Lifetime’s upper management as they’ve spoken about their responsibility to stay in this country, employ American citizens, and provide high-quality products for our customers.

Not to mention that fact that we make products the way they should me made—with strength and the ability to last for years.  Because this is America! Because we love this country!

(cue dramatic, swelling, patriotic music)

No, I’m not going to start reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. But, we are proud of this country, and our small beginnings. Over 25 years ago we started off as a small business that employed 15 people, and we’re now a global company, employing over 1500 American citizens.

This is our home. And in the immortal words of Bob Dylan, we “ain’t goin’ nowhere.”

Position at Lifetime Products: Product Marketing Administrator. I am the copywriter and administrator for the marketing department—writing copy for ads, scripts for videos, editing copy, and just about anything else that’s needed of me.  I get to write and edit for a living…it’s pretty much a dream come true!

How long at Lifetime Products: Since May 2012

Topics I blog about: Lifestyle and News

Favorite products from Lifetime: I love being outdoors!  Most of my family vacations while growing up were camping or fishing trips of some sort, and so I absolutely love our kayaks and tent trailers.  There’s just something amazing about getting away from the loud noise of regular life and entering a place that’s peaceful just with family or friends, whether it’s grand mountains or a mirrored lake.  But I'm definitely itching to get my hands on quite a long list of Lifetime Products.

On a typical Saturday afternoon you can find me: My Saturdays consist of at least five things—errands & cleaning, hiking, reading, writing, and spending time with family & friends.  I’m a big fan of relaxing, and the reading and writing is like a mini vacation; a chance for me to go into another world and spend time with my other “friends” for a short while.  Sometimes that relaxation extends into my family and friends time as I catch up on new movies or television shows…I don’t even dare list all the shows I’m fanatic about (Vampire Diaries, Fringe, New Girl, and believe me when I say the list goes on...).   But most of all, living in Utah gives me a plethora of hiking trails.  Taking an hour or two to get away is just the recharge I need.

My favorite escape: BOOKS.  I’ve purchased (shhhh) about $300 worth of new books in just two months and read about twenty of them so far.

Other blogs/websites I can’t get enough of:  I’m a self-diagnosed Facebook addict, but I love reading friend’s blogs, MSN Wonderwall (Yes, I’m a celebrity gossip enthusiast), GoodReads, Barnes and Nobel, Pinterest, and GrammarGirl (a grammar must-know!), and of course my own writing/book review blog: WritingMindCelebrities.blogspot.com.

Spring Break in Port Aransas
Deep breath. Looong slow exhale. Ok, I think Im mentally ready to unwind from my spring break vacation and start writing. As much as my parents deny it, theyre becoming Ohio snowbirds. For the past two years theyve packed their mini van full and moved to Texas for the month of March. They rent a condo right on the beach in Port Aransas on Mustang Island. I am very blessed that they choose to come to Texas rather than Florida so they can spend quality time with me. Ok, who am I kidding, we all know its for the quality time with my kids, not me! :) So, last week we headed to Port Aransas for spring break week to visit my parents. Spring break at Port Aransas is well, different. I did the whole spring break trip to South Padre Island back in my college days. It was pretty much what you see when watching MTVs Spring Break showh...
Which Lifetime Chair Is Right for You?
Lifetime Products is a leading manufacturer in high-density polyethylenefolding chairs. Keep on the look out andI'm sure you'll notice them everywhere from industrial break rooms to professional waiting rooms. Why? Because they are durable and require very little maintenance to look as good as new throughout many years of constant public use, indoors or out. That's especially important for professional environments, but for me personally, I love Lifetime chairs because THEY'RE COMFORTABLE. If you spend alot of time sitting at a desk suffering from back pains (like I did) you may want to start thinking less about cushioning and more about firm support. I found my cushioned office chair was causing me to slump into the back of the chair with my shoulders rolled forward and absolutely no support against my lower back. My aching...
The perfect Mother's Day gift: Kayak Adventures!
Last year I wanted to come up with something original for a Mothers Day gift. I didnt want to go with the traditional flowers, birdhouses, or candy. Showing her how much she means to me and how much I appreciate everything she does is really important. I racked my brain for days trying to come up with something creative, something different and something that could be enjoyed for more than just one day a year. What would surprise her? What could I do that she wouldnt expect? Then it hit me! A kayak!! When Mothers Day arrived she was never more excited! Instantly she began listing off all the places she could go and how jealous all her friends would be. I think the thing she liked the most was that now we could go out kayaking together. Not only did this give her a new activity, but it gave her a fun way to hang out with her ...
