National Military Spouse Appreciation Day + A New Product

Good morning everyone! Today is National MILSPO Appreciation Day, and while I’m not quite a spouse I still understand the struggle and the importance of the military spouse. My boyfriend has reminded me several times that he wouldn’t be able to do this without me. It is so important for those in the military to have a good support system back home.

Today, I celebrate each and every one of you who may be struggling with military life, or is handling it just fine. Whatever your story is, I am proud of YOU. It’s tough work, and I get it.

I want to share with you a new project I have been working on these past few weeks. I decided that I wanted to start making prints that I could sell and then donate to a cause I care about. I have chosen to start donating to the Children of Fallen Patriots. 

Our mission is to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty. We are dedicated to serving the families of service members from all branches of the armed forces who have died as a result of combat casualties, military training accidents, service related illnesses, suicide, as well as other duty-related deaths.

We believe a college education is the single most important gift we can give these children. We believe this is an important investment in the future of America. We believe this is one of the best ways we can honor those who died defending our country.

Below are just a few of the prints you can purchase for a cause. I want to create things that really have been speaking to me as I deal with long distance. I want to encourage those in the same boat as me. I want to spread happiness in any way that I can.

By purchasing a print from me, you can feel like you, too, are making a difference in someone else’s life.
