  1. Love your blog!! I feel that we are kindred spirits. ? I am super simple, always have been, and want to go back to all the neutral colors in our home! With Kiersten married now, and Hunter in April, I am gonna have a few rooms to redecorate and I’m excited! Gonna be hitting some flea markets and thrift stores very soon for my cheap awesome finds! That’s always been my go-to’s. And yard sales. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever paid full price for anything!

  2. Thanks for this. I always make a citrus basil for the summer. I needed one for this season. I love your blog and send it to everyone I know. Simple and natural.

  3. wish I had you as a friend 50 years ago when I was a young mother with three young kids. May God bless you and your family. Keep up the good job!!
