August Brave Crate: Shine

Everything Inside of the August Brave Crate!!

Summer has truly arrived- and if you’re like me, you’re tempted to skip out on the summer fun while your spouse is deployed. This is my favorite season, and yet I still need a little bit of encouragement to really embrace my favorite summertime moments of joy.

This month the Brave Crate community is focused on embracing opportunities to SHINE while we count down deployment, and that means soaking up the summer sun and taking some serious time out for self care. I hope that everything inside this months Brave Crate inspires you to make this months deployment countdown truly count.
