The Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party
Welcome to the July 6th 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.

This week finds me in Canada, enjoying some lovely sunny weather and catching up with family and friends

The Hearth and Soul Hop
We’ve also been taking a stroll back down memory lane, visiting lots of landmarks from my past including Golf’s Steak and Seafood Restaurant in Kitchener, a restaurant my late parents always enjoyed, and beautiful Victoria Park.
