I'm back.


If you'll have me, that is. I owe you all a big, sheepish apology for totally bailing on the blog this spring! Don't fret, we're not out on the streets or mysteriously in quarantine or helplessly without internet. All is well! We're great. I don't pretend that my little stories here make or break your blog roll, but some of you have been telling me that you've been checking in every day for the past couple months! Wow. I love you for that. I don't take it lightly. Really, it's a privilege to be missed and cared about. Thank you so much. You are such dear people. Thanks for still talking to me, because I have to admit, I'm kinda scared I may have lost some friends!


(Seriously, though. I have missed you crazy. Are we still friends?)


So here I am and thrilled about it! I even have a new look to get us officially reinstalled and onto a new chapter of the blog. I hope you like it. 


Sincerely, excitedly, familiarly yours,
Summer Elizabeth Harms 


ps. let's catch up in the next post, okay?

Welcome back and I'm so glad that everything is ok and that you took a much deserved break.

Don't worry, we are definitely still friends!

Aw, Summer. Definitely have been missing your posts and tweets! Hope you (and the family) are doing well. :)

Jessica said...

Yay!! Welcome back! Glad you had a great spring!

I tried to ask this on form spring, but I don't know if you still check that. would you share any preconception resources you may know about? My husband and I are starting to think of planning for a baby and I am on the hunt for good resources about things I can do for my body now to help the process later. Just thought you'd be a good person to ask. If not....I am soooooo excited to see what other posts you have up your sleeve! Thanks!

Amanda said...

I see Marta already said it, but "hip hip hooray!" because that is exactly what I thought when I saw you were back. I feel like I should be high-fiving you or holding out my pinky for a pinky promise as I shout, "friends!"

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
