I was so thrilled when I heard about Miss Rebecca's Little Women blogging event! As it happens... Little Women in our house is pretty much an everyday event so I didn't have to go far for something to blog about. =]I live in a log house in the country with my loving 'Marmee' and my two (still single) sisters. (But I think you already know that.)
Here is our home which we like to call "Orchard House".
And we do have a small orchard too. =]

a little bit of Jo...
The most important part of our lives is serving our Heavenly Father who always helps us through life's "sloughs of despond" and gives us so much to be thankful for!"Lord of all to thee we raise, this our hymn of grateful praise..."
