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













Some mornings I lace up my sneakers, grab my earbuds, and head out for a walk before anyone else is awake. And some mornings, I stumble to the kitchen, make a cup of coffee, and snuggle back in bed.

My girl and I have been working all year toward her very special event taking place this weekend. My baby is receiving her First Communion, and she is so excited! Family and friends will celebrate her special day with us.

And finally, My Madison and her Nicolas are returning home after spending time in their beloved Copenhagen, Denmark. They enjoyed time with family and friends there and had an amazing time in that beautiful part of their world.

Have a wonderful spring weekend, my friends!
Thanks for visiting!
