Let me be honest- prioritizing time to make memories while my spouse is deployed can be a real struggle. Between the busyness of life during a countdown and the stress of missing a loved one it can be tempting to let the deployment dies fly by without seeking out new experiences. But these days are only happening once, and I know that part of the joy of our homecoming reunion will be sharing stories about the experiences we’ve had in this season of separation. So I plan the day trip, or vacation or girls night- and I remember each minute to share with the one I love later on.
This month the Brave Crate community kicks off our summer countdown by focusing on adventure and travel with our Flying Solo themed box . We’ve sent all of the essentials you need to inspire summer adventures big and small.
So go ahead- take that road trip, plan that destination weekend or discover your city with a staycation! Whether you’re literally flying or just flying high on the adventure right where you are, I hope that everything inside this months Brave Crate inspires you to make this months deployment countdown truly count.
