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.

First Communion Joy















Few days are more special, exciting, and blessed than the days we celebrate a sacrament. My Flynn has been preparing for this most special day for almost two years. She has looked forward to receiving her First Holy Communion with such anticipation and joy! It was an honor for me to be able to prepare her, and even more of an honor to stand beside her with Steve as she received Jesus for the first time. We celebrated Flynn with close family and friends, a beautiful Mass, delicious lunch, Dairy Queen cake, and lots of love. 

Have a wonderful week, my friends!

  1. Oh, Billie Jo, thank you so much, my sweet friend, for sharing this precious time in Flynn's life with us. Her dress and jacket are just gorgeous. My favorite picture out of all of these is the one of you and her. The loving admiration she has for her mama just radiates from her as she is looking at you. xo
