Sun setting behind the swimming pool in our town. 
Today we're going to play outside in flip-flops, put something on the grill, and say goodbye to summertime, because tomorrow is the first day of fall.

Hello, Fall!
Hello September. Hello apples, honey, pumpkins and squash.
Hello jeans and scarves. (remember scarves?!) Hello crisp mornings and crunchy leaves.
 Hello tractors and harvest time, and mums on door steps.
 Hello double-crusted pies and cinnamon-scented kitchens.
Hello orchards. Hello quilts and naps. Hello snug, homey evenings.
Hello cider and chicken soup. Hello golden and scarlet maples.

No more tears about summertime past. 
I'm ready to enjoy the things that are cozy. All the tame domestic joys that come with autumn. 
Really, Fall, you are pretty irresistible.

fall just inspires coziness doesn't it? and coziness equals happiness or something.

Hello! I have just discovered your blog and love it so much! I was wondering how you manage to stay home with your daughter while managing on a teacher's salary? Any advice is appreciated!

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
