Lillie’s List of 20 Wishes for 2013

1. GrandchildrenI am doing great on the grandchildren wishes.  I have a new baby granddaughter (Kassi’s daughter, Klara} and expecting another new baby in February (see wish 18 below!).  I’m not sure if this counts as  “I”  don’t actually do anything except nag my children for grandchildren.

Again, we’ll be hosting the link up on Thursday to see the progress you’ve made throughout July and August! Hope to see you there!!! If you haven’t written a list, we’d love for you to write one and link up with us! It doesn’t have to be 20 wishes at this point. Even if you just have a couple, we still want to see them! See you Thursday!!!


  1. I appreciate how realistic Lillie is! There are a couple of things that I need to mark off my list. Maybe I’m not so interested after all! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Yep! Sometimes when you do a little research you find that wish isn’t what you had hoped it would be!!

  2. The quilt is beautiful! So happy that Miss Lillie is able to cross off “having grandchildren” from her list! Here’s to many more! :)
