I love your list--it inspires me! I picked my prettiest notebook for mine, and I keep thinking of the best little things to put in it. Perhaps I'll share on my blog some time.

I feel the same way about blogging--I wake up in the middle of night and check my e-mail on my phone to see if I got any comments from other parts of the world (OK, maybe that is a little crazy) and when I do no other feeling could make me happier.

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.

"If Christ be anything, He must be everything."
-C.H. Spurgeon
