The Hearth and Soul Hop August 3

The Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party
Welcome to the The Hearth and Soul Hop link party! We welcome posts about home & family, recipes, healthy living, gardening, crafts & DIY as well as encouraging & inspiring posts. We are a ‘no rules’ link party!

Please share the Hearth and Soul Hop with your blogging friends – I’d love to see it become even more popular. It would be great to get back up to 100 links again – I would be grateful for any and all help to get there! 

From the beginning, the heart of Hearth and Soul has been community. It’s such a joy when I’m able to connect with the folks who link up regularly so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to meet Laureen of This Fox Kitchen on her visit to London last week!

The Hearth and Soul Blog Hop
I met Laureen and her husband at the iconic British department store Fortnum and Mason where we got to know each other over a nice cup of tea. From there it was off to Covent Garden for a whistle-stop tour of one of London’s most popular tourist attractions. It was such a pleasure to meet Laureen and her husband ‘in real life’!

Now for this week’s features! I know a lot of you follow gluten free diets and/or are interested in gluten free recipes so today I’m featuring three gluten free posts! (If you want to pin these posts, please follow the links and pin from the original blogger’s post.)

  2. How lovely that you got to meet Laureen! Meeting bloggers IRL is one of the best treats in the world. So many bloggers have become some of my very best friends IRL. I’ve got seven of them coming to my house next week. I host an annual retreat with my best blogging buddies. It’s simply wonderful! 🙂

    What a pleasant surprise to see my gluten-free pizza party featured! It’s an amazing roundup as so many bemoan bad gf pizza. No need for that!

    This week I’m linking up Chicken A La King, which is great comfort food and only stove top cooking is required. I’ve also shared my Homemade Sangria, which is lovely for imbibing any season. 😉

    Thanks to you and Swathi for hosting!

    • Wow, Shirley, that is wonderful you are in regular touch IRL with so many of your blogging buddies 🙂 Thank you for sharing your delicious recipes with us here at Hearth and Soul.
