    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.

Well Hello There 2019!

I won't even begin this by lamenting that I cannot believe it is 2019, because none of us can, right? No amount of disbelief can slow down the rapid turning of those calendar pages. We can, however, enjoy every single moment. And that we did on New Year's Eve.


Mass first...
Then home to set the table for dinner on New Year's Day.




Next...jammies and party food and games while we waited for the ball to drop!






Happy New Year, my friends.
I hope and pray this year brings you peace, health, joy, and happiness!
I look forward to sharing this brand new year with you.

  15. Well, finally I get to sit down and catch up with you, my friend! Billie Jo, you have such wonderful taste when it comes to setting a pretty table. I just love the special touches to your New Year's Eve dinner. All of the treats look yummy and I enjoyed all of the pics but my most favorite was the one of you and Madison. Seriously, that one should be printed and framed. The thing I'm noticing about Madison is that the closer she gets to her wedding day the more radiant she looks. She just glows in that picture with her beautiful mama. xo
