What's on your Summer Fun List? Our summers don't get too wild and crazy. We spend the first part of it consumed with Brynne's softball games and the last half of it soaking in doing as much of nothing as possible because school is on the horizon. Thankfull...

Wednesday Hodgepodge
June 23rd is National Pink Day. What's your favorite something pink? Honestly, not a fan of pink. So I guess I would say the pink shade of the sky at sunset. Or the pink in this wedding bouquet at Kyndal's wedding in Cozumel last month. It sure was pretty! ...

The Stove ~ Blogging Through the Bible - Women Living Well (Good Morning Girls)
When we moved into our house three years ago, it was completely unlivable. We had one week and a certain amount of dollars available to get it to a place where we could move in. We painted everything, sanded and stained hardwood floors, made repairs, etc. T...

Story
Introduction
I am a 40ish year old wife and mom who recently moved back to her childhood hometown to simplify her life. I homeschool my two younger children, have one who is a junior in high school, and one who just graduated and is moving on to cosmetology school. I spend my days teaching, blogging, reading, gardening, and getting in an occasional power nap in between cleaning, cooking, and taking care of our four dogs. I am a homebody extraordinaire who loves nothing better than a comfy pair of pjs and an evening glass of wine, or a cup of hot green tea if it's cold.
