My Favorite Things

The Holiday Season is just around the corner! If you haven’t already started yet, you’ll soon begin your Christmas shopping. Navigating stores can be a headache at times and finding that perfect gift can be cumbersome. I’ve laid out my favorite things here that not only support Military Spouse Owned and Veteran Owned Businesses, but items that are sure to be a hit!

Raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with strings, these are a few of my favorite things!
