Hey y'all! I'm Skye and I believe in three things: living a simple life, running a savvy business, and having sound finances! I've been blogging and running my own business for over ten years now and I've gained a lot of knowledge that I am here to share with YOU. Learn how to perfect and balance these three aspects of your life and it will trickle out into every other area of your life, like your marriage, parenting skills, and relationships!

meet & greet

just for fun - let's pretend we are at a big southern plantation home, sitting on the front porch in in white wooden rocking chairs sipping sweet tea. (okay really i don't drink sweet tea but i will just play along this once...) i don't know about you, but i have a fan because you know if we are in the south it is hot and humid. no wait - we have ceiling fans. flip them suckers on!

oh look! up the path here come a few of my best lady frands from around the way. i'm so excited they dropped in - i've been dying for you to meet them all!

how do you do - how do you do! let's pull out some more rocking chairs and get to know each other, why don't we? i'll start the introductions:

meet kasey, jessica, sarah and kelli.

ladies, meet my frands. why don't you all share with us a little about you and where you're from? ;)

kasey @ buttonwood cottage

hi everyone! i'm kasey, a crocheter, bargain hunter, and foodie. i crochet women's accessories in my shop, buttonwood cottage and write about handmade living over on my blog under the same name. I live in southern new jersey where i am adored by my loving pooch, hobbs, and generally ignored by my cat, calvin. i’m working hard to build a handmade life with the help of hb (my boyfriend who I refer to as hunnie bunnie). things around here are imperfectly perfect - and i like them that way!

sarah @ fontenot four

i love blogging as a way to share the blessings in my life through life's challenges and to be an encouragement to others facing challenges of their own! i also enjoy sharing about my journey with Christ along the way. in between you'll find me writing about family, food, and other randomness!

kelli @ eat.pray{read}love

my heart is to minister to women in everyday living. most of us have at least a few things in common - we care for (feed!) our families, we grow in our faith, we strive to learn, and we serve and love those in our lives. that's how I created my blog name: eat.pray{read}love. i would be so happy to share the journey with you!

since you can't really have a seat on my imaginary front porch and chit chat with these lovely gals, i really encourage you to head over to their blogs and check them out. they are quite a stellar group of women!

(ps - i changed my sponsorship program up. want to swap ads? click here for the deets!)


  1. Thanks Skye for the shout out. This was a fun post! Oh, and I wish I didn't like sweet tea! But for me, the more syrupy the better. ;)
