Everything Inside of the February Brave Crate!!
Usually I’m all about the hearts, chocolates and love poems that surround us in February. Valentine’s day can be a great reminder to spend time focused on our most important relationship with the person we love- but when my other half is deployed it can also become a reminder of just how far apart we are from one another. Suddenly, every commercial, social media post and trip to the convenience store leaves me feeling left out and a bit lonely.
What’s been helpful in seasons like this is remembering that I am note truly missing out on anything- my love isn’t lost or absent, it’s simply evolved into a new and exciting version of itself- a Long Distance Love. By shifting my focus away from what we’re missing and onto what we’re learning about ourselves and each other in this season I’m encouraged to embrace the lovey-dovey aspect of this month of the year. Deployment can give us a unique opportunity to grow our relationship in ways that many other couples will never get to experience.
So, as we count down deployment during the month of February the Brave Crate community invites you to reconnect with your spouse by remembering just how beautiful and special your love for one another is during deployment. I hope that everything inside this month’s box helps you count down with hearts in your eyes!

Salty, sweet and the perfect treat for a solo-date night during deployment.
