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.

It is the summer’s great last heat,

It is the fall’s first chill: They meet.

  4. Your post made me smile. Happy Fall! Windows are wide open today letting in a little cooler air, it's nice.

  5. Oh that sweeeeeet baby all wrapped in her blanket! I finished my fall decorating and thanks to your inspiration, it was finished quickly, simply and I'm quite pleased with the simplicity and feel!

  6. I have just got my Autumn candles out and look forward to lighting them.
