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! ❀

  • "In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt." ~ Margaret Atwood

For Palm Sunday ...

    Marni McGee: The Colt and the King
    This is an absolutely *beautiful* story about the young colt who carried Jesus into Jerusalem ... and then dreams of meeting "his friend" again someday. New family favorite. :)
