Today we welcome USA Today Bestselling Author and sister-Romvet Christyne Butler!
What do you like to make, bake, create or purchase for the holidays, Christyne?
Oh, not much of a baker I fear (in fact, the kitchen is my least favorite place in the house!) but I do love to decorate my home for the holidays. I have a collection of nutcrackers that I put out ever year. Each one has special meaning to me. They are like old friends to come to visit when I unwrap each one and and find a special place for them around the house. And since I celebrate Thanksgiving by putting up my Christmas decorations the day after, I get to spend quite a bit of time with these guys. I have all sorts—from glittery, fancy ones to cowboys, from small ones that sit on my kitchen windowsills to ones almost three feet tall.
I have a few that I like so much that they stay out all year round, My Red Sox and Uncle Sam Nutcrackers stand guard over one top shelf of a bookcase while my two Navy Nutcrackers are on the other end. Living in New England I am a die hard Red Sox fan (no matter their season might go!) and I am very proud of the five years I served in active duty in the United States Navy.
Christyne, Do you have a special military connection?
Yes, I have many military connections! I served in the US Navy from 1987 – 1992, I am married to former Marine, retired US Air Force and my father was retired Air Force so I grew up a military brat. I’m happy to help with this great cause.
Christyne has provided an excerpt from her latest, The Last Chance Maverick, here.
