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.

Dear October,

 










Dear October, Welcome back. Please come in, get cozy, and stay awhile. This year,  more than ever, we need your glorious, colorful days and longer, cozy evenings. We promise to appreciate the beautiful sights, sounds, and scents you provide, and won't take a moment of your time with us for granted. We will stop and admire the vibrant shades of red, orange, and purple that adorn your trees and listen for the crunching sound of those leaves beneath our feet as we walk along the paths smelling your crisp, autumn air. Your calm and cozy are just what we need now. So please, come and stay awhile. Don't mind the mess and the clutter. Welcome, lovely October. Oh, how we've missed you.

  1. I love everything about fall. Sun or no sun, wet or dry, windy or calm, warm or cold. What's not to like? Of course too I love those first days of snow when it's just in the air teasing us. I spend my winter waiting for a blizzard. Your little Mocha is darling.

  12. October is beautiful around your neck of the woods, Billie Jo. The colors are very similar to the Fall colors in Calif. up north. I love the road pictures, those are cool. And you have quite a selection of Fall books to read this month of October. Yes, welcome back, October. ; )
