The Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party July 13

The Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party
Welcome to the July 13th edition of The Hearth and Soul Hop! We welcome posts about home & family, recipes, healthy living posts, gardening, crafts & DIY as well as encouraging & inspiring posts.

I’ve just arrived back home from our wonderful visit to Canada this morning. It was so lovely to catch up with family and friends – and meet two of my newest cousins!

The Hearth and Soul Hop

We also stayed at some beautiful hotels, enjoyed some great Canadian scenery and some very delicious meals. I can’t wait to share more of my experiences with you over the coming weeks!

Banana and Chia Seed Muffins
I also shared another recipe using delicious, healthy chia seeds. My Banana and Chia Seed Muffins make a great breakfast or snack and they are a wonderful way to use up just past their best bananas.

Thank you so much to everyone who shared recipes and posts last week! Today I’m featuring:
7 Lessons Featured at The Hearth and Soul Hop7 Valuable Lessons I’ve Learned from Having Kids, a heart-warming post from The Domestic Lifestylist,

DIY Fluted Candy Bowls at The Hearth and Soul Hop
how to make an edible bowl in Life is Like a Bowl of Candy from What’s On The List? and

S'mores Pie at The Hearth and Soul Hop
