  1. Love this... I need to start counting my blessings. When you write them down, there's so much to be grateful for.

  2. I loved #436. Nothing leaves you more dumbfounded than one of those out of the blue questions that are deeper than you ever dreamed possible, and yet you have to find an answer that is the most simplistic. I would have loved to have heard that conversation. YOur list is beautiful, as are all the pictures. Especially loved the Blue Ball jar!!!! Just so homey feeling!

  3. Hi! I came over from Ann's. I have to say AMEN! to shirts that don't need to be ironed :)
    I don't mind ironing but it is my least favorite chore. Thanks for sharing and God bless!

  4. Hello! Came over from Ann's and enjoyed your post so much today! Love to see Mommas so in love with their babies! :) God bless!

  5. What a cute blog and when I’m reading your fabulous article I suddenly miss my nieces. It was very cool and nice stuff. Keep posting and big thanks for this incredible blog.
