• FAMILY
    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.

May Days And Birthdays














Thank you for all the birthday wishes for Rhett. He had a great birthday full of family, fun, and food. My little boy is seventeen! 

In other news, the spring weather is finally here. Our little part of the world is bursting with green trees, blue skies, and glistening lakes. We are enjoying time outside, especially on the deck listening to the woodpeckers nearby. 

I exercised my right to vote this week. Pennsylvania held a primary on Tuesday, and I was once again thankful that Peyton is all about news and politics, and was able to brief Steve and me on our way to the polls. The teacher becomes the student and all that, you know.

Finally, a great big Happy Birthday ~ Tillykke med fødselsdagen~
to my brand new son in law, Nicolas! He is celebrating his very first birthday here in the states, and Madison is planning to make it very special. He deserves it. He is an amazing young man who has made my daughter very happy.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend, my friends!

  5. You have so many wonderful celebrations. Happy birthday to both of your handsome men. ;)
    My favorite part about my girls growing up is knowing they are smart and insightful, and they can teach me a thing or two as well.

  6. Birthday wishes to both Rhett, and Nicholas, Sometimes when we are reading we don't realize that we are smiling as we get so engrossed in the read, I always smile while reading, and as I leave when I visit you. You are such an inspiration to all who visit, me included, as I am making my visits this morning, i am so refreshed.

    Thank you for your visit and your precious comment. Wishing you and your dear family a most blessed and happy Memorial Day weekend. I am so thankful for the sacrifices made for our right to cast our votes, and for parents who set examples for their children such as you.
    Blessings,
    Sue
