Fall tends to be a season where we get back into life’s regular routines. School schedules, work schedules and activities are ramping up after summer time away, and we enter into rhythms that are a little more normal. But, entering into this season while our loved one is deployed can feel anything but “normal” for those of us on the home front.

As we enter into this new season, it’s the perfect time to get Back to Basics when it comes to our deployment countdown. With October as the preferred month of our “Basic Besties”, this month Brave Crate is sending deployment essentials combined with fall favorites that are sure to bring joy to the next month of your countdown. I hope that everything inside this months Brave Crate inspires you to find joy in this new season with new rhythms as you take intentional time for self care and a bit of fun- all while moving closer to your homecoming reunion each and every day!
