Been a while..

Hi everyone! I know it’s been a while, however I noticed that the last major blog post I created was in regards to Veterans Day on November 11, 2016 and it was a dedication to my father. Who would’ve known that a month and change later, the greatest man in the world would pass away. 

I always ask my father to send me a sign since I haven’t gotten to see him in my dreams yet (only to replay the weekend of his passing over and over).  However, I received my first Valor Blocks box in the mail in the middle of March, around the same time I was feeling down since I haven’t gotten any signs from him.  Valor Blocks is a new  subscription box service that has official licenses with the military branches and curate the best military gear (Army, Air, Navy, Marine Corp) each month and send to your door.  These boxes are awesome to send to those deployed as well.  Valor Blocks reached out to me to see if I would be interested, with my assumption they knew that I was in the Air Force (unsure if they stalked my instagram or not 🤷🏽‍♀️).  However, I received my first “Valor Block” and when it came in the mail it was…. U.S ARMY. 

Yes, I said U.S ARMY.. and if any of you know, my father was a Vietnam Veteran that served in the Army…. SO, of course I took this as my “sign” from my Dad.  The box that came was great! It had awesome Official U.S Army gear inside to include the Army Flag, and a big t-shirt of course catered to the Army.  However, a month later in April, when I started to feel down again while planning my daughters first birthday and realizing my Dad wouldn’t be around for this day… I received an email. The email was a tracking number.. but I didn’t buy anything online lately? I thought it could’ve been spam or just sent to the wrong address? No idea. 

In April, I received ANOTHER Valor Blocks box! Completely surprised, because I wasn’t aware they would continue to send boxes since this was a blogger product review.  Not only was this a surprise, it included an official U.S Army coin, (something we use in the Air Force) and another t-shirt and a heavy duty Army glass. 

Not only do I want to say Thank you to Valor Blocks for the awesome apparel, and goodies.. I want to say Thank you for the great timing. You weren’t aware of my Fathers situation, but I think it was his sign letting me know he’s still here and thinking about me.. I could be wrong, but it was impeccable timing.. so Thank You! 

To all my followers, please check out Valor Blocks website and order some subscription boxes for your veteran friends, guarantee they will love this and appreciate it! Marines, and Air Force are also on their way to their site! Check out the images below to see some of the awesome items I received! HUA. 🇺🇸
