Month of the Military Child

Pin It

As you may (or may not) know, April is Month of the Military Child. And today, April 15th, was the day chosen where everyone will wear purple to honor these children. Purple is the color that represents all branches of the US military. While I do not have children, my nephews are military children and I have a lot of military wife friends who have children!

I've been asked a few times what exactly is Month of the Military Child. It's simply a month to honor military children and their military families. As a US Navy wife, I have made many (not so easy) sacrifices in my life... and I can only imagine the sacrifices kids are forced to make (possibly multiple times) throughout their childhood. So April is the month that was chosen in 1986 to recognize military families and their contributions. If you want to know more about this month, you can go here. The website also gives some ideas of how to celebrate the month. :]

BLAH BLAH BLAH, haha here's the manicure I did for Month of the Military Child, after the jump.

Anddd if you're wondering: The base is Zoya Zara (GORGEOUS by the way!). I used Cheeky plate CH32 for the monster character things, CH41 for the pizza,  Bundle monster BM321 for the support ribbons, and CH51 for the stars!
