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.

Beach 2019!
































We returned to the ocean this past week just as we have most every September since Madison was a baby. Steve loves the beach. And I love how much he loves it. He spends his days here walking in the sand, sitting on the beach, watching the waves, and loving on his family. We all enjoyed a wonderful week filled with fun, food, and family. Now, we return to the beautiful mountains of Pennsylvania for the cozy days of autumn.

Have a blessed weekend, my friends!

  16. These are wonderful beach pictures. And being new to your blog, it was nice to see all the family. My daughter, Jess, lives 5 minutes from the ocean, and she visits the beach often. I love that coffee cup with the two girls, as I have a brunette and a blonde. What a fantastic family trip you had. I didn't realize you lived in the mountains. It is a dream of mine to live in the mountains someday. : )
