we have some catching up to do. has it really been this long? really?
yes, really. i have skipped out on almost a whole month of the blog. my friends are telling me that they are tired of checking in and seeing imogen's picture. okay, okay. you're right, guys. thanks for still stopping by after a month of inactivity and for caring enough to tell me to get with it. or to at least change the picture. i love you.
the world (meaning my life) has changed quite a bit since i last wrote, and i almost don't even know where to begin with the catching up. i would try to do it little by little, but would surely feel overwhelmed. it would simply be impossible to tell you everything. so, i will settle for a hasty recap and then move on to blogging about things of the present. here we go.
camp is over. the summer was a huge success. we had a fantastic staff, no major injuries or illnesses, and record numbers of campers. lives were changed and hearts were won and relationships improved and priorities were set straight and the blessings were innumerable. God is so good. His work is beyond anything i could ever ask or imagine. camp always makes me realize that fact over & over again. i love that. and at the end everybody went home & back to the real world.. except for us. grant and i are lingering a little while at our summer home, enjoying life by the lake.
last week we roadtripped to omaha to visit my family + friends. we celebrated grant's 26th birthday and i made him a butterfinger brownie cake that i will share more details about later. i found a stellar shirt at a thrift store that i can't wait to wear. grant calls it my 'farmgirl' shirt. oh, i finally saw the new harry potter movie and really liked it. and i also saw the new g.i. joe movie and totally hated it. oh, one more thing. a brand new possibility has popped up on the fall horizon for me, so grant and i have some deciding to do. will keep you posted on what's in store for me this year. no matter what, it's going to be good.
ps. i'm officially back. for good.

sounds like big plans are about to unfold, how exciting! thanks for the tip on g.i.joe ... it looked questionable to take the kids to, especially after the 2nd transformers movie. (got a little nervous about who is deciding what content should be pg-13)!
am so looking forward to hearing more about that butterfinger cake!!! have a wonderful day!

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
