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.

October's Gift

Enjoy your October, my friends.
It will be gone before we know it.


  1. Wow!! So lovely there! We haven't had much change in color yet - but hopeful to have the trees changing soon! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Very nice, Billie Jo...its currently 50* and pouring rain here in western NY, my friend...and I am loving it!!! smiles.

    Have a beautiful day.

  3. Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures. We are having record high temps around here which will not help our leaf situation. We typically go from green to brown and it looks like we are headed down that path again this year. Whomp, whomp, whomp.... (That's the Price Is Right losing horn, if you were wondering!)

  4. Beautiful photos, I can see why you love this amazing season so much.

  5. What beautiful photos. Not much color here yet.

  6. Ohhhhh so true!

    So let's savor each and every day!


  7. Your colors are so very pretty.....we havent gotten there yet, but I do look forward to it.

  8. Your Autumn is beautiful, Billie Jo, our foliage is just beginning to change color! You are so right, it will soon be gone! Thanks for the reminder.

  9. Slow down October, slow down! I love your view!

  10. My brother and his family live in Clearfield, PA. My mom and I went to visit them last weekend. The leaves were beautiful. They haven't changed a lot here in southwestern PA.

  11. Hi Billie Jo!

    Can you believe it is already October 11th?! Seriously, where did the month go? I love the beautiful colors of your fall leafs! Enjoy it while it last, it will soon be white.

    Hugs and Love,

  12. Such rich reds, Billie Jo! The leaves are changing ever so slowly here. xo

  13. Wow! It's really starting to change your way. Fall is definitely the most beautiful season of all! : ) I think I will head out for a hike in the woods this weekend .

  14. So pretty up there! Can you believe it's almost half over?!?! We are still swimming here.

  15. Dear Billie Jo

    Such beautiful colors. I love the Fall Season and all that comes with it. You live in such a pretty part of our country. Thank you for sharing it.


    Homespun Hugs ♥ Teri
