Swappin’ Howdies! and a Giveaway

Howdy! Welcome to my Little Korner!

A friend of mine, Star Traci, clued me in to a blog party that I thought sounded wonderful. Vicki, over at 2 Bags Full, was thanking the blog-i-verse for the wonderful friends she has met through it. How wonderful!! I also have met wonderful people through the blog-i-verse and would love to offer my thanks as well to those wonderful people who have encouraged and challenged me over the years!!

I started blogging back in 2010, and it was all downhill from there ๐Ÿ˜‰ I met folks through blog hopping and commenting. Pretty soon, I had friends whom I have never had the pleasure of meeting face-to-face. I just had no idea how many people I would be meeting from all over the place. I love that!

My blog is nothing fancy and doesn’t make any money whatsoever ๐Ÿ˜‰ It is just my place to be creative, vent, engage current events, talk about our homeschool, and share God’s blessings in my life.

I am a home maker, wife of 16yrs, married a guy I met in high school (but not my sweetheart, that’s a whole blog post alone) in our home town, in the church I grew up in.
yep, that’s mine!!!
5 children, also mine ๐Ÿ˜‰

 we homeschool, 

we are a military family,

and a bit on the active side.



We are currently stationed in Alaska and this is the view from our back deck.
It is an amazing place to see!!!

  1. So much fun doing the Blog Party with Vicki – thanks for sharing your blog, too, and stopping by mine. I am slow at getting around because my computer’s motherboard died (on Saturday no less) – but, am doing it little by little. Lovely to see your intro. Hugs from the Kenai Peninsula. kareninkenai@gmail.com (www.alaskabluemoose.blogspot.com)

    1. Ugh! We are pretty good at killing off computers ourselves. There may be something to that theory that some people can conduct electricity ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for swinging by! I love your Alaska artwork, so very very pretty! I really like the blue moose! We just don’t get to see too many of them this year.

  2. Great family. All ready to defend their country. And do come to visit my blog, since the party goes on. I have a nice vintage lace book to giveaway. See you there.

  3. Hi Kay, Thanks for stopping by my blog! I’m not from Ireland, despite my blog title ๐Ÿ™‚ I just love ‘The Lake Isle of Innisfree’ by William Butler Yeats. It’s my favourite poem! I’m actually from Canada and have lived here (but not the same city) all my life. I homeschooled for 3 years (my daughter for all 3, and my son for the first 2). I look forward to visiting your blog on a regular basis now that we’ve found each other!

    1. I haven’t made it all the way around yet either. School started again for all the kids and me. Whew, so crazy busy here now. Thank you for stopping by.
