The Hearth and Soul Blog Hop
Welcome to The Hearth and Soul Hop Link Party, the link party for all things home and family – family and comfort food recipes, healthy and sustainable living posts, homemaking, gardening, kids, crafts and DIY. We also love encouraging and inspiring posts!

I’m back home in the UK – last week just flew by so fast! I’m excited to start writing about the wonderful places I visited as well as some of the lovely restaurants we found on the weekends (my husband was working during the week). In the meantime, I’ve been sharing:

  1. Hi April,
    I agree it is always good to get home after traveling. We are so excited here today the sun is shinning, yeah! Hope you have a great week and thanks so much for the party!

    • I’m so glad the sun is shining for you, Miz Helen! It’s playing tag with the clouds here today so it’s kind of in and out but we are getting some sunny spells 🙂 Wishing you a lovely week!

  2. Home sweet home 🙂
    Thank you April for hosting another party

  3. Can’t wait to hear about were you ate. You have been traveling a lot in the last year or so. Thanks for geting the party out.

    • I’m working on some posts now, Diane. I hope you will enjoy them 🙂 It’s funny, everyone always talks about the different European cuisines and while I do love them, I really enjoy the food culture in North America too. It is very innovative and fresh. Have a lovely week!

  4. April, Those are some yummy looking features and I love the greenhouse! Thanks for hosting another great party!

  12. Thanks for hosting this great party April….pinned and shared and hope you will join me on Saturday!

  13. I hope you had a great trip! I just got back from a month in Europe myself (finishing up in the UK in Edinburgh) and while I love to travel, it’s great to be home 😉 Thanks for hosting this week, I’ve shared a couple of recipes and articles for weird allergies like fresh pears and avocados, and an accidental Chocolate Pudding Pie.

    • It was lovely, thank you, Danielle! I hope you enjoyed your tour of Europe – how lovely to have a month away! Thank you for sharing with us – I’m especially intrigued by the accidental Chocolate Pudding Pie 🙂

  14. Thank you so much for featuring my mousse cake, April. Hope you have a fantastic week and thanks for hosting!

  15. April, I’ve always said if I lived in England I’d never go out of the country on vacation — wonder if that’s true! My US home is a little piece of England, though — last week I posted my homemade crumpets and this week (link #99) my homemade English muffins.

    • There certainly is lots to see here, Jean, that is for sure! I’m excited to see your English muffin recipe – again something I’d love to make from scratch 🙂 Thank you for being a part of the Hearth and Soul hop community!
