  3. Beautiful - I love the light in the room with Z as she's making her snowflakes. And I adore the quote - it's so very true.

  4. Have enjoyed reading your blog. Had been reading it for awhile. Then saw where you had taken the children to Fort Loudoun. Had no idea you were a homey! I live in Loudon, just off Hwy 11. Retired a year ago and am enjoying being at home living the good life of crafts, gardening, etc.
    Keep posting.....I so enjoy
