Random Photo Friday And Christmas In July 2018

Happy Weekend, my friends. I hope you are enjoying your summer days. Things are slowing down a bit here, and my thoughts are beginning to move toward the new school year. I am loving the slow pace of the summer days, yet cannot help feel anticipation and excitement about beginning lesson plans for my favorite third grader. Rhett will continue cyberschool which involves minimal involvement from me, with the exception of random checks and technology help. (Which I promptly refer to my assistant Peyton, of course. )

Rainbows and puppies.
Two of my favorite things.

We celebrated Christmas in July, and I was thrilled to see so many of my Blog friends as well!
It's just fun.
Minimal work.
Lots of fun.

And look! I actually met one of my new neighbors!
We had a nice visit yesterday morning, and I am certain we will be great friends.

Have a great weekend, my friend!
Thanks for visiting!

  8. Love your Christmas fun! And right around this time... I start thinking about fall...

  9. Hi Billie Jo~

    Fun post..I love that you celebrate, Christmas in July, what a great way to start off the Christmas season! I love it when things slow down, school starts, harvest in my area starts, things cool down, and life is good...fun to see you!

    Hugs and Love,

  10. LOL- Kind of fun to watch people celebrating Christmas in July...wish I could do it the other way and celebrate July @ Christmas except, living in Wisconsin, that will never work. lol I hope you have a great weekend, Billie Jo! xo Diana

  11. Loved seeing all your photos. We exchanged some very late Christmas gifts with out of state relatives last week. Does that count for Christmas in July? Actual Christmas. Your memes had me laughing! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  12. Christmas in July looks like fun in your home, Billie Jo. Autumn will be here before we blink and then Christmas! Have a happy weekend. ♥

  13. My little one always enjoys seeing your cute little puppy pop up! And sportin' a rose this time. CUTE! Love the deer. Two nights ago, David and the little one were on a country road when two wild boars ran across the road. She was so excited! I've never seen one alive. I think I'd enjoy seeing the deer more then a wild hog. ;)

  14. Oh my gosh..the look on that first puppy pic! So adorable! I am so about over the Christmas in July Hallmark movies. Just seems like yesterday that I was watching them over and over when it was too cold to get out and do much more than that.

  15. I usually enjoy the Christmas in July films but this year I seem to be rushing about from one appointment to another so it has not been the relaxing experience it usually is. Love your new neighbour, great photos.

  16. Christmas in July, what fun:) I think it deserves more than just one day a year! Love the puppy pics and nothing better than a rainbow! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

  17. Hello Lovie!
    Just a quick check in to catch up on your posts as they're always some of my faves. :) Loved reading about Nicholas's family visiting and of course your Halloween anticipation and Christmas in July. Such a friend after my own heart!! Thanks for sharing your life this way - and your humor and sweetness. I'll be jumping back to blogging soon.

    Blessings on your weekend xo


Thanks so much for saying hello!

Billie Jo
