Simple Lives Thursday One Year Mark: Twitter Chat and Coming Giveaways

For one whole year, I've been hosting the Simple Lives Thursday blog hop with four inspiring bloggers.  I've learned so much, gained new habits, and developed new goals seeing the impressive things the contributors post each week. 
To celebrate, we're hosting a Twitter chat on Tuesday, July 26th from 2:30-3:20 Pacific 4:30-5:30 Central time,  where we'll be giving away some great stuff.
Be sure to follow each of the hosts:

Me – @culinarybliss
Annette – @SustainableEat
Diana- @dianabauman
Mare – @marebeard
Wardeh – @WardehHarmon
and use the hashtag #simplelives to get in on the action!

We're also planning monthly giveaways for our contributors who get chosen for the featured posts!  Check out the posts we chose this week, and please keep contributing! 
Remember that if your post is chosen, we'd love for you to feature this badge prominently on your post to bring more people to the hop.

Canning in the heat of summer can make your kitchen the last place you want to be, so why not move outdoors?!

How frugal do you think you are? We love this gal's honesty and humor over saving her freshly picked cherries.
