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.

Happy 7th Birthday, Little Blog And A Giveaway!

Seven years ago tomorrow, August 3, 2012, I hesitantly began writing thoughts and sharing pictures in this little space on the Internet. I am so very thankful I did. And I am so very grateful for you, my friends. Thank you for reading, sharing, and caring. In honor of seven awesome years, I am having a fun little giveaway! 



I am not one for formality, so if you would like to add some amazing scents to your home, just leave a comment below. I will randomly draw three names from those comments, and the first will win the large Vanilla Cupcake Yankee Candle! The second and third names drawn will receive a gift set of eight votive Yankee Candles in four autumn scents including our very favorite, Spiced Pumpkin! 

I will draw the names at 6:00 P.M. Tuesday, August 6, 2019, and post the winners on Wednesday, August 7, 2019. Again, thanks so much for reading! And Good Luck! Have a cozy August weekend with the people you love!

  7. I'm so happy to see this post! I'm so happy you chose to blog and that our paths crossed. You are always a sweet heart. I have to tell you, your memes from the other day gave me a much needed chuckle as I was recovering from an emergency appendectomy. It was bad and I'm grateful to God for modern medicine. Your post put a smile on my face though. Thank you!!
