On December 31st, 2017 The Ever Co's website officially launched. By 2031, The Ever Co plans to open a coffee shop, event venue, play place, handmade boutique, pumpkin patch and Christmas tree farm. We dream big at The Ever Co.
Follow along on our journey to making The Ever Co dream a reality.
I'm the founder and creative designer behind The Ever Co. I love coffee, college football, camping, holiday decorating, kid's fashion, my babies and my handsome hubby. Born and raised in Kentucky, I moved to New Jersey at 18 to pursue a career in sports broadcasting. Instead, I transferred to Auburn University where I graduated with a degree in Mathematics and a commission into the Army as a helicopter pilot. Blake and I met on a blind date in flight school, where we were trained to fly the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior. Most days you can find me in a top knot and destroyed jeans, walking around Target with Starbucks in hand, but I'm totally a closet introvert and love lounging on the couch in pajamas + watching movies with the family!
I'm the other half of the founding team of The Ever Co. I handle all things finances and logistics and enjoy staying behind the scenes. I love woodworking, real estate, welding, altitude climbing, our beagle Bella, my little ladies and my big one. Born and raised in Washington State, I initially enlisted in the Army at the age of 18. After a few years I was accepted into the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY where I graduated with a degree in Engineering. Like Amy, I chose the branch of Aviation and became an Army Kiowa helicopter pilot. Most days you can find me in the garage working on a new house project or outside working on the yard with my ladies.
Blake and Amy love the outdoors. Their love for the outdoors grew enormously when they were stationed in Fort Lewis, Washington, also known as The EVERgreen State. Always hiking, always exploring and always eager to set off on a new adventure, they quickly realized their love for evergreen trees of the majestic pacific northwest.
An evergreen is a plant that has leaves throughout the year, always green. Blake and Amy love the correlation between the leaves of an evergreen and a family withstanding storms and seasons, yet remaining still and standing tall forEVER.
“I have loved you with an EVERlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”
Amy uses her online platform @amylouhawthorne on Instagram to share the brokenness of her past to lead others to the Cross. Her message: though He knows the depths of our hearts, He still loves us the same. Blake and Amy hope that through The Ever Co, they can teach others about God’s everlasting, forgiving and saving love.
Blake and Amy are passionate about selfless service and generous giving. They have hopes and dreams to give back to the military community who’ve given them so much. They want to honor the men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for this nation and it’s freedom, while also embracing and uplifting the family and friends who were left behind.
Through The Ever Co, they launch Mission 31 which will raise $3,100 for chosen military families suffering loss of a child, battling with a child in the hospital or trying to raise money to grow their families through adoption. Mission 31 has already donated over $15,000 to families over the last five years! Their hope is for each $3,100 donated, chosen families will continue their journey to creating a family that can live out The Ever Co mission.
Amy turned 31 on December 31st when the website went live.
Everly turned 3 and Hadley turned 1 that same December.
Their life verse is Jeremiah 31:3.
The Ever Co farm will open in 2031.
