military wives need to stick together. this girl is one of the bright lights in my life. i have looked up to her as she walked bravely through a deployment. i have cried with her and connected with her over military pains and struggles that I didn’t think anyone else would ever understand. we have become great friends. && we are rocking our coaching businesses together with grace and grit.
i thank God for you @samantha_benko .

Remember 🇺🇸 Everyone 🇺🇸 Deployed 🇺🇸 We are thankful DoD hasn’t released any incidents this week as we keep in mind everyone who is deployed and keeping our country a great place to live. #ExtraordinaryActsForOthers #RaiseTheFlag🇺🇸 #REDFriday

One of the hardest parts of deployment is feeling connected to loved ones, whether you're the service member overseas or the one holding down the home front. Without regular and meaningful conversation, it's easy to feel disconnected from your loved one. But there are ways to say "I love you", to feel connected, even when phone calls seem impossible. ⠀

Of course, care packages are a natural fit for staying connected during deployment. But they don't have to be the only way you say "I love you" during deployment! There are so many ways that both individuals can remind the other that they're loved and cared for.⠀

Get ideas in today's blog post and check out this new care package design in my shop. #linkinprofile

This is our definition for #ExtraordinaryActsForOthers. What’s we think is great about it, is that it applies everywhere. #ValentinesDay is a perfect opportunity to think about how you do extraordinary acts for others in your own home.

Today is Valentine’s Day and it has me thinking about all of the people who have taken their own lives and aren’t here to celebrate with us. I just finished watching a video of people from our company who were almost gone too soon but our products literally saved their lives. Then I see that Les Brown (have you heard of him?) 🙌 is partnering with our CEO to put on H.O.P.E. Workshops. I’m so thankful that more people will begin to find hope now instead of pain. Our products are known for weight loss but they are also changing lives in such incredible ways! @thelesbrown

Hi y'all! There are quite a few new faces around here so I wanted to introduce myself!

I'm Rachel, the owner and chief care package maker behind Countdowns and Cupcakes. My company helps connect military families separated by duty and distance through thoughtful hand-crafted care package decor.

When I'm not putting together fun care package designs, I love spending time with my sailor and our dogs, watching my Clemson Tigers, reading and traveling.

What's one of your hobbies? Tell me below!

Postpartum depression is legit. But I wanted to shine a little light and share a positive story on my journey. ⠀

I switched my meds a few weeks ago and it wasn’t an easy transition. I had some SUPER low days — probably because I ran out of my last prescription and was completely out for a few days. ⠀

But today the behavioral health lady called to check in on me and I realized that I’m doing really well right now! ⠀
She asked me all the depression questions & then the anxiety questions and I’ve gone from 10 to 7 and 15 to 5! Not sure what exactly that means, but she said it was awesome! Haha so I’m bragging. 🤷‍♀️⠀

My point is that there are dark times of mental health disorders BUT there’s also high points! Not every day is dark. 🙌⠀

I’ve been feeling so HAPPY lately and I’m grateful. So. Freakin. grateful. 😌⠀

People have asked me what I personally do to cope. ⠀
Things that work for me include:⠀
Working out regularly ⠀
Taking my medication daily⠀
Self-care (personal time)⠀
Being around others who understand what I’m going through and are willing to listen but also able to pull me out of my shell when I’m not talking… ⠀

What are you doing to better yourself this year? Do you need an accountability or challenge group? Do you need a workout routine, or a running partner?? Let me know! Our tribe is always expanding!! ⠀

Xoxox⠀

Today, one of my first true friends I made here in Clarksville, and one of my forever friends, is leaving for a new adventure with her husband. God I’ll miss you @miamajor more than you know. Thank you for introducing me to so many other great people, for always being there, for always being honest, for your stealing margarita moments, your opening the front door with a face mask on moments, your running when I told you not to moments, for the moments we would look on local chat groups and laugh till we cried, for all the laughs, the tears and the amazing talks. Oh and Otis...that little nugget will always be my favorite Boston. I love you like a sista and I’m so proud of you for handling this crazy life as well as you do. This isn’t good bye, it’s just see ya later alligator! Love you guys! Xoxoxoxox #armyfriends #armylife #milsos #militaryspouse #clarksvillefriends #sisterfromanothermister #cherishthemoments

...and then don't do it!

I've been a rule follower my whole life and care packages are no exception. So it really shouldn't be any surprise that this is one my top pieces of care package advice.

There are rules put in place by the USPS and the receiving country that you need to follow when you're shipping a care package overseas. Here are some of the most common ones:

Rule 1️⃣: no alcohol
Rule 2️⃣: nothing explosive or flammable (this includes things like compressed air canisters for shaving cream and hairspray)
Rule 3️⃣: some meat products are a no, for example, certain countries don't allow pork products.
Rule 4️⃣: don't send anything super valuable or private. Ok, that one is just my own recommendation.

What care package questions do you have?
