Welcome!

  • My name is Dawn and this blog is my little happy spot. 😊 I am mom to 4 boys - our oldest is in college, and our youngest is in diapers! I chat about lots of things here: family, food, faith, nature, books, crafts, organization, homeschooling and special needs (our 14 yo has Autism). Thanks for reading ~ I hope you enjoy your visit! ❤

Spring Thought
