hello, readers! these are for you.
(i found a wild patch of them on my running route yesterday!)
just wanted to say thank you for reading.
you always show up.
you let me play my little show and tell game and applaud me as i do it.
you put in your vote of confidence, no matter what i'm talking about/in love with that day.
you send me sweet words. i read each and every one of them.
you write me emails. you ask me questions. i love this.
and i'm going to get better at being a swift responder!
when i change my look, you always come running with compliments.
you notice my baby steps in photography. and i know i'm overdue with a post about that.
you put up with my constant stream of lists and 'my new favorite recipe.'
(i claim that to be true way too often. i know.)
you inspire me to do new things.
you bring good things my way.
and you and i have become friends.
thanks for everything.
ps. announcing the start of something new.. i will now be responding to your comments within the comment section. watch for me to pop up there with answers and little notes for you!

Oh! I was just about to comment on the beauty of your photography before you even wrote your little comment on it. How funny! Your photos, blog, recipes, etc. are the greatest. Definitely my favorite blogger and I look forward to reading it every day!

:D (No gushing today because I'm just not in a gushing mood, just a smile so you know that you made me smile.)

p.s. (Arg. Why do I never say everything I want to the first time?) I'm looking forward to your comment replies.

What a perfect picture! It's just so happy.

Just so you know, I always try your new favorite recipes. And more often than not they are big hits!! Often becoming "go-to" recipes- such as granola bars, banana bread and monster cookie bars.
Thanks for all you do!

Lovely daisies! When I was growing up we spent two weeks every summer visiting my g-parents in remote upper Michigan. The wild daisies there were one of my favorite things...I would take long walks and pick arm fulls of them off the roadside. Now, I have plenty of daisies planted in my own yard because they still rank up there as one of my favorites flowers. One of my little girls has declared daisies are her favorite, too! :)

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."
