At the Hearth and Soul Link Party, you can share blog posts old and new, about anything that feeds the soul. This includes – but is not limited to – family, home, recipes, decorating, crafts, DIY, travel, organisation, book reviews, the arts and self improvement.
It’s My Blogiversary!
Seventeen years ago this month I pressed the button to upload a collection of articles I had written to support and encourage housewives and stay at home moms like myself at The 21st Century Housewife.com. I remember it taking ages to upload the website on dial up internet, but it was worth the wait. It was the start of something I’m very proud of.
Over the last 17 years, through 5 redesigns and a URL change, my original website has evolved into a leading lifestyle blog covering food, home, style, travel and more here at apriljharris.com. Although there is a lot of road behind me, I feel like the journey is just beginning. I’m so grateful to you all for your support and encouragement!
I’m getting ready for a big photo shoot next week! We’ll be creating content for the next few months and I’m excited to share it with you. If you want to keep up with the latest, including some peeks behind the scenes, be sure to subscribe to my newsletter. (You get a free copy of my mini e-book Five Vintage Family Recipes if you do, plus I’m planning lots of bonus content to come.) You can check out the latest edition here, if you’d like to have a look before subscribing.

I’m highlighting my version of Nigella’s Italian Breakfast Banana Bread on the blog this week. This delicious espresso-spiked Banana Bread recipe is perfect for breakfast or with a cup of coffee anytime – especially on a cool fall morning or winter’s day!
