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.

    Perhaps my favorite thing to write about. Mothering is my vocation. A dream come true.

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.

Social Media Can Be A Good Thing

Like when you follow someone on Instagram and realize that although you live miles and miles apart, you share the same love of home, family, food, and cozy. This is my dear friend Joey. We met through Instagram years ago, and our families met once before when we spent days together at our old home. This summer, Joey and her amazing husband Roger are on the trip of a lifetime, and we are humbled they chose to stop here and visit for a few days as part of that trip.

Social media brought two women and their families together, and for that, I am grateful. Love you, Joey! Enjoy your journey!


  1. That's so wonderful. I love the positive side of social media. X

  2. It's the absolute best part about it!!! I hope you enjoyed your visit! You two look wonderful! : )

  3. How cool! Hope you had a nice visit. I've met lots of people online that I wouldn't have known otherwise.

  4. Sluggy and I have become fast friends through blogging and I love her to death. Can't imagine my life without her.
