When I was young, I dreamed of being a wife and mother. I am blessed to live that dream every single day along with my husband Steve, our four children, one son-in-law and two precious pups.

    Perhaps my favorite thing to write about. Mothering is my vocation. A dream come true.

Hey there!
Hi! I'm Billie Jo, a wife to one and mother to four who loves all things home and family. During the day I homeschool, do laundry, and drink way excessive amounts of coffee. I would much rather read than exercise, and I am blessed to live the life I dreamed of.

Dandelion Days






“Dandelions, like all things in nature are beautiful when you take the time to pay attention to them.” 
― June Stoyer

My Flynn sees a wish.
And thanks to her, I do too!


  1. This was such a sweet post, my friend. Oh, how your daughter has grown! And she is growing into a beautiful young lady :)

    Have a wonderful day! Hugs!

  2. I love how she loves the dandelions. I love watching the same wonder and respect in my little girl. You have captured the magic here my friend. May you have many more years of dandelion love ahead!

  3. Love, love, love! I hope Flynn always sees wishes ♥ (us too : )

  4. Love, love, love this! So wonderful to have annual pictures of her with dandelions. I too always loved them as a child. I have to laugh because my oldest had to read Dandelion Wine in middle school and originally hated it, it's now her favorite book! LOL

  5. Such sweet pictures! If only we could all see things the eyes of a child. I imagine the world world would be a much better place. Have you seen the dandelion wish necklaces. Super cute!


  6. I love the fact she enjoys them so much...makes them pretty as a rose!

  7. There's something to be said about the way a child view's life:
    Matthew 18:3
    'And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.'

  8. Flynn, Can you go back to 2014? Oh how sweet you are in that picture. But ya know what? You are even more today! I can't wait to see what God has in store for you. He see's your wishes and someday they will all come true.

  9. This makes my heart smile :)

  10. And may all of your sweet wishes come true. xoxo

  11. Your Flynn is wise beyond her years! I love progressive photos through the years. Have a lovely evening. ♥

  12. Billie Jo, I love how you take a photograph each year of Flynn and the dandelions. So beautiful!

  13. I ALWAYS think of Flynn when I see my Clementine playing with wish flowers. :)

  14. Such a joy to visit, a lovely post.

  15. This post speaks to my heart... Blowing Dandelions is one of my favorite things to do ever! I remember searching for them, blowing them out with my momma and making a wish! love your little Flynn!!!
