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.

Random Photo Friday On Labor Day Weekend

Welcome to the unofficial end of summer, my friends! Goodbye swimming pool and frozen lemonade! Hello football and pumpkin spice everything! Every season is a blessing, and although I love some more than others, I try to live and enjoy each one as mindfully as I can. Our last week of August was filled with cute puppies and good food. Because. Life is good.

(This is literally what I woke up to one day this week.)

Have a wonderful weekend with your people!
