Welcome! The Hearth and Soul Hop is the blog hop for family and comfort food recipes, healthy, sustainable living posts, gardening, family, kids, crafts and DIY. Encouraging and inspiring posts are welcome too.
I’m sorry I’m a bit late posting the hop. We have just arrived in Ireland this evening. I’ll be here exploring for the next few days and sharing some of my adventures with you!
I have an announcement – October marks the Twelfth Anniversary of the launch of The 21st Century Housewife! There are lots of fun things coming up on AprilJHarris.com to help celebrate. including guest posts, a giveaway and more! I can’t believe how quickly the time has flown by and I’m so grateful to all of you, my readers! Please watch this space and be a part of the celebrations!
This week I’m honoured to feature a wonderful post from Laureen at Fox in the Kitchen.
In Jenny’s Macaroons, Laureen shares her sorrow at the loss of her mother, Jenny. Laureen also celebrates Jenny’s life by sharing the beautiful crafts she created and by making one of the recipes she remembers Jenny making. Although we now celebrate all kinds of wonderful posts at Hearth and Soul, Laureen’s post reminded me of the heart of this hop, the celebration of home, family, hearth and home. Thank you, Laureen, for sharing so openly and honestly and for reminding us all that if we look hard enough, we can find joy even in the midst of deep sorrow.
I’m also featuring two helpful fall craft posts:-
