Pawpaw's Veterans Day Deals 2022
We started a new tradition in 2020 at Dixie Love after the first Veteran’s Day without my Pawpaw. One of the things me and my pawpaw always had in common and he taught me well was to love a good deal. We always told each other every time we scored the best deal, sale, or negotiated a killer buy. So of course when Veteran’s Day came around not only was it a time to thank my Pawpaw and many others who dedicated a time in their life to our country but also celebrate them by finding all the awesome deals that were offered to him on that day. I would always tell him the new ones I would find and he would always tell me which ones he hit up that day. It was something we always shared and in my way of keeping this tradition alive I started a blog last year to highlight all the local and non local discounts given to our veterans on Veterans Day as a thank you for everything you do so we can all enjoy the freedoms we have today. We are forever grateful for you and hope that you feel the love and gratitude that you deserve on this holiday dedicated to you. So as we are compiling our list I want to ask everyone to comment with their gratitude or their favorite Veterans Day deals to share so we can be sure they are on the list. Happy Veterans Day to my Pawpaw who I miss more than words can ever express and to all our veterans I hope you enjoy your day. Thank you! These are for you!

Happy Veterans Day Pawpaw! I love and miss you so much it hurts! Thinking of you today and every day. See you in the wind. Love, your Katie Bell
From 2020's original blog post "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 email@example.com 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 dixieloveco.com. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your 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!"
