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 excessive amounts of coffee. I would much rather read than exercise, and I am blessed to live the life I dreamed of.

Thursday Thoughts


Thank you for all the thoughts, well wishes, and prayers for Peyton and Christopher! I shared them all with her, and she is so thankful! And happy! Today she is baking cookies for favors and tonight is the rehearsal and dinner. Tomorrow is their special day! I will be back on Monday with some photos. Until then, have a wonderful weekend, and thank you again!


  1. I'm sure their Day, will be lovely...

    Gentle hugs,

  2. I am so excited for you all! We've had a few really small intimate weddings in the family and they are the best! I love that she is baking her own cookies, so sweet! I'll pray for a good and blessed time !

  3. Praying tomorrow goes well, and I'm sure it will! One more thing I'd love to add for Peyton is to savor every moment of the day because it will go by fast. I'm getting ready to celebrate 19 years of marriage next month and I'm like whoa where did time go? :-)

  4. How exciting! I'm wishing them the very best! They have SO much to look forward to! ENJOY!!!
