Happy Veterans Day 2020!

This picture is blurry but I don’t care. This is me and my Pawpaw from Veterans Day I think my 7th grade year, the year of 9/11 because I have my 9/11 shirt on. My Pawpaw passed away this past March and Veterans Day has always been a big deal in our family. Pawpaw proudly went with every grandkid and great grandkids to their Veterans Day programs. I was always so excited to give them MY Veteran’s name. As I got older and me and Pawpaw loved sharing discounts, freebies, any way to save a buck lol. I would help him find all the places that were giving out special discounts or treats on Veterans Day. So since this is the first year I will be celebrating without Pawpaw here with us I would like to share them with you. We would get such a thrill out of it and I hope you do too. Go share with your Veterans in your family and hug them extra tight. I will also be giving my own discount from Dixie Love today in his honor and to honor all those who have served or are serving our country today a one time 30% off coupon code to be used at any time, no expiration. Save it for your Christmas shopping! All you have to do is email us at or send us a private message on our facebook/instagram page on Nov. 11th and we will send you the code. You can shop online with us at or our Etsy store at Thank you from the bottom of my heart for you service and I hope you get showered with love and support today and of course all the goodies. Happy Veterans Day Pawpaw I miss you and love you so much! And happy Veterans Day to all of you!
