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.

Wednesday Wisdom...

...from Mocha.

Wake up early every morning.

Sit with your person while she has her morning coffee.
She may let you have the very last sip.

 Send your person off with love when she runs to town.

And wait by the window the entire time she is gone.
This will show her just how much you love her.

 Pose for photos when the lighting is just right.

Your person may want a good picture for her blog.

Always break for an afternoon nap.

And sit by the fire after dinner.
Your person likes to do that.
It makes her feel happy and content.
And that will make you happy too.

(And Mocha, too.)

  8. Absolutely adorable, she is SUCH as sweet little doggie. Mine is a foul beast who ate something nasty and de-stuffed a cushion today. Sigh. But he does wait by the window for me and looks out until I get home and he's always really pleased to see me. Sometimes the only one who is... CJ xx
