    And thank you for another party

  2. April, congratulations on the 4th Anniversary of Hearth and Soul! Thank you for the giveaway, and many thanks for including my Hot Dog Bread in your features! I am sharing the party- I appreciate the time and trouble you go to to bring Hearth and Soul to us every week! 🙂

  3. Congratulations on Four Great Years! This is one of the first blog hop linky parties that I started visiting when I first started blogging. Alex (retired from blogging) and Heather at Girli Chef we both hosting at the time. I was so excited the first time that one of them made a comment on my blog. Coming here on Monday or Tuesday has become part of my blogging experience that I look forward to every week. Thanks so much for keeping it going!

    • Thank you, Miz Helen! Hearth and Soul was one of the first hops I linked to as well and when Alex and Heather asked me to co-host I was absolutely thrilled. It is definitely one of the highlights of my blogging week 🙂

  4. Thanks for the party April and have a great day! 🙂

  5. 4 years April… very impressive. Thank you so much for your dedication.

  6. Congrats on 4 years, April! Like Miz Helen, your blog-hop was one of the first that I joined in with and although I’ve not been sharing many recipes on my blog lately, I still follow you via BlogLovin and am happy for your success here! Thanks for your kindness and for featuring my recipes from time to time…always such a thrill! 🙂 Many blessings to you and yours!
