    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.

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.
WANNA KNOW MORE?

Monday Morning

We interrupt our regularly scheduled posts concerning cozy November evenings, changing leaves, and cute little puppies. This week is all about a special little mouse who is having a birthday! Yep. We are taking a trip down to Florida to celebrate two very special birthdays...Mickey Mouse turning 90, and our sweet little Flynn turning 9! We are blessed to have some awesome people staying here and caring for our puppies and our home, and are looking forward to spending some family time together, as well as meeting up with some special people too. : ) In the meantime,

Selfies on the way to Mass are still a thing around here.



But luckily we were paying attention and spotted some awesome elk on our way.
These pictures do not do justice to their size!
Sorry about the lack of picture quality here!

We enjoyed cookies and coffee on a cold, snowy day.

And my sweet little Flynn could not wait to check out our first snow of the season.

Mocha. 
What else can I say?


Have a wonderful week, my friends.
I'll be checking in from time to time.
And before I go...

Words are not enough.
Happy Veterans Day to all who serve or have served so we can be free.
