favoritethings
   so i wanted to have a little project for this little blog in december. something plain and simple and fun. i think this is just the thing. a month full of favorites. i'll be sharing whatever dances into my head (not necessarily everything on the image above)... recipes, blogs, youtube videos, etc. anything that i consider a personal favorite. there will, of course, be christmasy posts woven in and out of this little series. because i love christmas!!! (you know this is the time of year when hundreds of my favorite things are in season.) i'm really really excited to get this thing going. i hope it will be as fun for you guys as it will be for me. let me know if there's a category you're hoping i will cover.

and yes, i did catch oprah's ultimate favorite things last week! i happened to be at the gym, and oprah happened to be on, and i happened to be super excited about it. and just to put you (and me) at ease: i'm not going to try to be oprah. my favorite things probably won't look anything like hers. but i promise they will be far less expensive.

I thought of you the other day because there is a Michael Jackson game for Wii I thought you would like. Maybe it'll be a favorite.

What software do you use to make images with text... if you don't mind sharing?

I can't wait to see what you deem "favorites" in your world! I'll make sure to clear out enough file space so that I can bookmark everything I see.

Your graphic is beautiful--the colors and the font. You should be a professional!

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."
