Today we welcome Romance Blogger, US Air Force veteran and Air Force Spouse Kim Adams to our holiday celebration. Kim and I met through Romvets, and struck up a fast comaraderie as we were both military spouse moving every few years. Kim is one of the most generous souls I know, and she matches her goodwill with action. Kim supports the military in so many ways, but is perhaps most recognized for her SOS (Support Our Soldiers, Sailors and Marines) efforts at the annual Romantic Times Book Lovers Conventions.
What do you make, bake, create or purchase for the holidays, Kim?
I am the best gift wrapper in my family. When we lived on base, I volunteered to wrap gifts at the BX to raise funds for the Boy Scouts. I’ve wrapped everything. But now I use gift bags! Last year, we moved from Hawaii to Maryland, so almost everyone, from friends to teachers, received Hawaiian gifts from a stash I moved in my household goods. That stash is now exhausted so I will giveaway gift cards to teachers. For friends who already have everything, we are making a donation on their behalf to military charities such as the Wounded Warrior Project.
Kim, do you have a military connection?
I am an AF veteran of 12 years and an AF spouse for 18 years! My husband is retiring next year and our oldest son will be heading off to college. So it will be a double transition to civilian life and one less child at home. We enjoy Maryland but my heart is still in Hawaii. Mahalo.
Thanks for joining us, Kim!
