Hi, guys! Sorry I've been gone so long! Way longer than I had planned. Why is it so hard to sit down and blog in the beginning of June?! Every year I can't imagine that I'll be too busy to sit at the computer and at least write a short post. But this year, I actually have a really good excuse.

The day after we got home from our vacation in Washington D.C. (which was awesome! we've got a little video to show you guys soon!) Grant got seriously injured while working here at camp. He was on the mower and a rock ricocheted off a tree and hit him square in his left eye. For awhile that day, we were afraid he wouldn't be able to see out of that eye again. We've been in and out of doctor appointments over the weekend and the past few days, and are so thankful to the Lord that the internal bleeding has stopped and everything appears to be healing. Grant is not in pain anymore and although his vision is still very hazy from the trauma, it's slowly improving each day. He's supposed to lay low this whole week to prevent pressure building in his eye, which could cause a re-bleed. Hadley and I have been keeping the shades pulled and the bright lights off, and we're trying to take good care of him. We'd love it if any of you guys would pray for us!

I won't post any pictures, just in case any of you have sensitive stomachs when it comes to eye stuff (that includes me), but if you want to get an idea of what's happening in Grant's eye you can google "hyphema." :) More soon! Just wanted to give you a little update.

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
