meetme
i'm going to be guest posting on a brand new blog!
like, as a regular. as in, i signed a contract. can you believe it? me! freelancing! i'll be guest blogging on Smithfield.com with some awesome fellow bloggers, and i'm just so honored. and guess what.. i get to write about food. how dreamy is that? the focus of my posts will be cooking, entertaining, and recipes for 'the everyday home chef'. woohoo! this is so up my alley.
i do hope you will pop over and see me. i'm introducing myself to the world over there today, and you guys will probably already know everything you read about me, but it would still be fun. i'll be sure to let you know each time i have a new guest post. and i can guarantee that there will be recipes involved. yay.
{a note to my readers.. i owe you. big time. a million thanks for spreading my name, reading my words, and helping me go places. yours, summer}

Hi Summer

I have been following your blog for a little while now, enjoying your beautiful pictures and being inspired by your words and recipes. Your pizza dough recipe is now a firm Friday favourite in our house (my hubby to be loves them!) and I have also made some of your cookies which also went down a treat.

So I just wanted to say firstly - thank you for that and secondly CONGRATULATIONS on the new blogging adventure. I will definitely be following :)

Jules said...

Congratulations! You deserve it. You're an amazing writer.

Hannah said...

Summer, I have to admit that I was another person who thought that you were going to announce a Baby Harms!

Congratulations on your new adventure. I have tried quite a few times to get onto smithfield.com but it just won't work for me! Hopefully one day it'll work & I can enjoy all that you write there as well as here.

Enjoy the new adventure that God has brought your way : )

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
