I have proof that it’s a Small World even when you’re not at the Magic Kingdom. Ariel’s mother-in-law was today’s key-note speaker (@conniealbers) at the blogger’s conference I’m attending this weekend! During her incredible teaching, she mentioned that her daughter-in-law has played the part of Snow White and Ariel at Disney World for the past 10 years. I took a chance and showed her one of the photos I had taken of Annie and Ariel in June, and sure enough this is her daughter-in-law! . . . #2to1conf #bloggerlife #homeschool #blogconference #homeschoolmom #hsmommas #hsbloggers
I’m so excited that I’m getting to spend my weekend at the #2to1conf bloggers conference.
Look what arrived today! I already know that I love Real Raw Beauty’s Green Tea Mask and their Himalayan salt exfoliate, their face wash and moisturizer and toner, but my face is in for a new treat tonight when I use the Hyaluronic Acid serum! @realrawbeauty #realrawbeauty #bloggersover50 #loveyourskinagain #skincaretips #over50blogger #takecareofyourskin #skinover50
Each October Annie and I meet up with her friends at the Animal Park for their Fall Festival.

I wish that doing the hard work to see my dreams and goals fulfilled was easier than quitting, but it’s not. Quitting is the easy way out. But if I put one foot in front of the other, one day at a time, at least I know I’m making progress. So here’s to a week of great progress for all of us! . . . . . . #last90days ##dailyencouragements #dailyencouragement #encouragment #happywifeandmom
Last night I found out that two of our dearest friends were in the area and wanted to come see us this afternoon. I had to spend the morning with Annie at school so I had no time to prepare for the visit. I didn’t have any baked goods that I could pull out of my freezer and offer to them, and there was no time to stop and pick up anything at the store…. What could I serve my special guests? Then I remembered what I’ve been learning and what I’m building my website blogs around - use what you have in your hands (or refrigerator, in this case) to create the life you desire. I remembered that I had some grapes, apples and blueberries and cheese so that was a start. Then I remembered that I had the ingredients to make a cream cheese/salsa dip for tortilla chips and I had JUST enough chips left in the bag! We sat around and munched and talked and talked and munched! It was a wonderful afternoon! 🌻 🌻 #usewhatyouhave #lifeinvirginia #oldfriendsarethebest #
Can you believe it’s October? Yay! I’m ready to count how many times The quote, “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” by Anne of Green Gables pop up on my feed today. 😉 But I’m ready for the final quarter of 2018 and I plan to end the year even better than I started! What about you? Have you set goals for the #last90days of this year? 🍁 🍂 #bloggersover50 #homeschoolmomlife
My beautiful niece, Kellie, is gone. Less than 3 months ago her father, my brother Drew lost his hope and lost his life. This week Kellie died suddenly due to unknown issues related to a childhood medical condition. She was only 31 years old. My heart is so sad. I was blessed to have known both of them. Life is short. Please don’t waste it or allow too much time to lapse between how often you tell your loved ones how much you love and appreciate them.
I just joined the @realrawbeauty green tea-algae mask revolution! Woo hoo! It dries quickly so in a few minutes I’ll be able to exfoliate and apply the Radiant Skin Moisturizer. Those are Real Raw products also. The salt scrub exfoliator is my favorite!
