It can be hard for me to find the energy and motivation to celebrate life’s milestones while my spouse is deployed. But then I dig past the exhaustion, the loneliness and (to be honest) the guilt of celebrating while my loved one is deployed. I remember that finding joy in life’s milestones big and small- is essential for those of us who are determined not to wish away the days during deployment.
This month Brave Crate celebrates one full year of counting down deployment and we’re taking our own advice by making intentional time to celebrate with our Birthday Bash themed box . This months box includes some of our favorite items (and guest experts) featured in Brave Crate throughout the past year. As we countdown the month of June we’re taking inspiration from Brave Crate’s “greatest hits” that we loved during year one!
So go ahead- celebrate that milestone! Whether it’s a birthday, a holiday, an accomplishment or just a good day- I hope that everything inside this months Brave Crate inspires you to make this months deployment countdown truly count.
