• 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 13 yo has Autism). Thanks for reading ~ I hope you enjoy your visit! ❤

    Beautifully windy, mild-for-November day. Sunset was gray and golden ... lots of juncos on the patio, picking at spilled seed.

Happy Holiday Fun!
