remember my dismal day yesterday? 
despite my efforts to dwell on all things nice,
the weather was gloomy and I was glum.
happily, something to cheer me up sat just outside my door!
my sweet friend marta sent me a lovely valentine surprise.
her gift-giving brilliance absolutely made my day.
start with cinnamon bears to put a sugary smile upon my face,
add an adorable dish to serve 'em up & show 'em off,
plus perfect packaging. genius. 
thank you so very much, marta! 
doesn't she have the best handwriting in the world?
I know. I'm completely jealous.
let's all just take a minute to snatch a slip of paper 
and attempt to emulate her killer penmanship...
(but let's face it, no one can jot it out like her)
however, her oh-so-sublime script is just the icing.
ready for the cake? marta is the best writer. the best.
on my lunch break, I usually go over and dip into her archives.
i've found that m.writes is the perfect complement to a turkey sandwich.
it's totally better than finagling the paper or flipping through a magazine.
get in on a piece of this cake. it's my favorite kind.
you'll love it. and you'll love her.
we'll just call this my valentine's day gift to all of you.
a little love story.
happy reading!

Oh, what a very sweet surprise! Marta's penmanship is beautiful, and her writing is even better-- it was what hooked me on her blog from my very first read.

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
