Great post all your things on your list! Great shots again, gorgeous family!


Inner beauty is SO important! The most outwardly-beautiful people in the world also have a kind spirit. I firmly believe this.



Great list! And as always, beautiful photographs. May God's blessings surround you today!


Very good post Becky! Being 33, I feel like I am on the cusp, I have to color my hair more and I can't lose those extra 5 pounds as easy as I used to, these are all good tips...You're the best! Lisa


Thanks Becky once again for your thoughts. Every time I read your blog I feel like you hit the nail right on the head. You are always so inspiring. I think your age makes you so much more beautiful to me. I'm just realizing how GREAT aging truley is, and yes, I'm only 30, but I have learned so much in just the last 5 years...I'm like bring on the years, it's all starting to make sense. I love your *b* lists, so keep em coming!!

oh, how i wish you lived closer, so we could hire you to shoot our family!
happy wednesday!


I love reading all of your entries~ you always say the thing I need to hear. As a 41 year old, I am learning to embrace the beauty within me, and accept myself more each day. I am going to print this out so I can go back and read it more often~ thank you for being such a beautiful person, inside and out~


Living in a house full of guys it is very important to me to not only be the mom, but be the example of what kind of person they should want to be with in the future. Sometimes it works, sometimes not...there is definitely a lot of laughing...and honestly every once in awhile I need to remond myself that I am in fact, a girl. I love the days I get to have my hair done and find new underclothes :) I think it helps to reevaluate where I am going and what I am doing in my life.


You are the soul behind so many women. Your thoughts, beliefs, moments you share, they are what makes you "YOU". I thank God that our paths crossed. I received another GREAT checkup and it brings tears to my eyes and a endless smile to my face. I LOVE LIFE, MY HUSBAND, CHILDREN and everything inbetween. Happy Hump Day!!!


here I thought I was doing good by just being freshly showered. :)

enjoy your b' lists so much becky! i'm in my 50's and looking forward to the day "the barn doesn't require any further painting" it will just be weathered to a beautiful patina!
*note for amber's mom

I am 52 and I follow just about every single one of your tips. They help, i would add though, EXERCISE, it makes you feel young.

aw, becky! love the "b" list! hey, i am a little closer to you now that we just moved to indiana! (i still miss my cali scrappy girls) AND since we are renting for a year, i was thinking about how i could decorate without breaking the bank---LOVE the chalkboard in the kitchen! (and the verse, of course). went out to hobby lobby and painted me one today for my kitchen! you have the bestest ideas...hugs and heard yal had fun without me at cha (ha ha)...kristin young


Becky, your list is so on the money. I don't have time for the exercise right now and I know that means that I need to scale down because I don't feel the same without it! Oh, and the Philosophy Microdelivery is the best stuff evahhh. I love it. My skin is so much softer and glowing since I started using it. I actually mix it in with the Philosophy Purity and I use it on my neck, chest and my arms when the cold weather dries me out. People always remark on my skin being so healthy looking - and I live in Alaska!

Love Love Love the *b* list. So right on target! Words to live by...FOR SURE!


Even though I don't share the opinion about faith and even though I am just in my early 20s I have to say: Very wise words. I love how you called a spade a spade, very good advice.
BTW your blog is great, you are such a talented woman!
