Hi Friend,

Thank you and welcome to the One Happy Housewife community!

I'm excited that I get to share my experiences as a homeschooling mom with you. I'm even more excited to hear about your experiences.

An email is being sent to you - so please don't forget to check your inbox! It has all the information you'll need for accessing my printables.

If you don't see a message from me soon, you may want to check your spam folder to make sure my message didn't end up in there.

Make Sure You Receive My Emails

I want to keep in touch with you so that I can continue sharing all my recipes, house cleaning, organization tips, and more with you. I certainly don't want you to miss out on this valuable information.

To make sure you receive my emails, I've included instructions for whitelisting my email address with the major email providers below. If you have trouble receiving my emails and don't see your provider below, please reach out to me on Facebook so that I can try to help.

2. Click the Create Contact button.

3. Enter Valerie Cooper in the name fields and valerie@onehappyhousewife.com in the email field. Click Save.

That's it! I'm now added as a trusted contact.

How Do I Keep Your Emails From Being Tagged as Spam?

To make sure that the messages you receive from me pass through the Google spam filter, you can create an email filter using the Never send it to Spam option. Here's how to do it:

1. Open Gmail and click Settings.

2. Select the Filters and Blocked Addresses tab, and the click Create a new filter.
