Happy Monday everybody!
Instead of giving you a weekend recap of sorts I'm instead going to give you an important announcement, cause I'm just so dang excited about it that I couldn't wait to post it! If you're a blogger and you're in Arizona listen closely...
Now, let me stop there and back up a little bit. If you've been a reader around these parts for a while you know my husband was in the military for eight years and served a 15 month tour of duty in Iraq for Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom (I've written about it here and here). The military has been a huge part of our post-high school/early adult life as he left for basic training in 2007, deployed to Iraq the same year, and we got engaged during his two-week leave.
And since I'm all about not reinventing the wheel, here's how Melyssa from The Nectar Collective describes it:
"...we'll be putting together care packages for soldiers who are living abraod, but don't recieve mail or packages from friends and family back home...We're bringing together bloggers from all over so that we can decorate our care packages and send fun and helpful items to our soldiers. We'll also be dishing out wine and pizza, because this event is just as much about giving back as it is about having a fun girls day with other bloggers in our area." (Source)
All that to say, if you're a blogger in Arizona we want you to join us!
You heard right, there's pizza and wine! So bring your pretty little self to Kiwanis Park in Tempe on March 29th! All you need to bring is the contents of the box(es) you wish to send, and Kai and I will provide the boxes. For ideas on what to include in your care package visit this post here.
Also, please note: prior to your arriving you will want to visit AnySoldier.com to pick out the name and address of a soldier you wish to send to.
