Jun 18th, 2019 by dearmilfamily at 7:00 am

We already know that military spouses are resourceful. So not only is this week's episode a story about resourcefulness, but a little bit of hope for the future after military life. Sometimes the things you are working on in the moment, even when they feel insignificant, is you laying the foundation for what's to come later. This week I bring you the story of one military spouse who started her business as a side hustle, moved to full time online entrepreneur lifestyle, and then once her husband finished his service commitment, started a brick and mortar store.

Meg Sutton is the boss lady and doodler behind Belle & Union, a company that launched in 2012 which sells letterpress printed cards, art prints, southern-inspired wrappings, and hand-crafted artisan goods brimming with vintage wit and wisdom that tote a bit of a foodie twist - all 100% made in the USA, a commitment based on her husband's military service. Belle & Union launched their first brick and mortar store in San Antonio, Texas, in July 2018. The shop houses the working studio as well as offers creative workshops across a variety of subject matters. Meg values encouraging people to slow down and enjoy the sweet moments in life, gathered ’round a table filled with smiles and laughter. When she's not doodling or coming up with Belle & Union's next great product, you can find her sipping chai tea, chasing her pup with her husband, and curling up with a good book. Belle & Union’s products have been featured in Country Living, Rachael Ray, Southern Weddings, Southern Living, Southern Lady, and Oh So Beautiful Paper. Meg has been interviewed on KSAT's SA Live in San Antonio numerous times, KENS 5 in San Antonio, Texas Lifestyle Magazine, Proof to Product podcast, Creative Biz Rebellion podcast, and more.
