Today I get to share recipes I’ve made over the last two weeks. A little recap of what’s been happening here at the B household. I’ve been playing around with meyer lemons after hubs brought home a few bags. You would think three bags would be enough to make me happy. I only have 2 lemons left and asked hubs to hit the jackpot again on his way home from working out of town. This trip was a swing and a miss. Two stores, no meyers. I am seriously sad. Hopefully we can find some more soon. I have so many recipes rattling around this brain of mine. I swear I dream in yellow right now.
Make sure you buckle up folks. I have so much to share with you this time. I hope you enjoy everything. Not only food but sentimental stuff too. You know how rarely I wear my heart on my sleeve. So enjoy it while it lasts. I’ll be back to my goofball self soon. It’s how us Lunie’s roll.
So today is a bit of a bittersweet day. It would have been my mom’s 76th birthday. If you are a regular reader you know my mom passed away when she was 47 years old. I was 15 at the time. Seems like a lifetime ago, but not a day passes I don’t think about her. Most of the time it’s with a full heart. Days like today it’s a bit sad. It’s hard not to think about how different life would be if she was still with us.
I wrote about my mom on March 5, as myself and other bloggers put a face on heart disease. I have to say I was touched by the response and personal stories people shared. My mom was truly amazing. One of those moms kids wish they had. She listened when you talked. Laughed with you and took an interest in things you were interested in. She spent so much time with us kids. Always making sure each of us got some one on one time with her. We’d go shopping, or out to eat and just talk. I think I am a very lucky gal to have had a mom like her. Open, generous, kind and full of laughter. Happy Birthday Mom, you are missed, every single day.
If life has taught me anything it’s live it to the fullest each day. Enjoy it, be in the moment. It’s amazing how life changes when you stop stressing over all the little things you don’t have or have time for, and appreciate the things you do. Like family! And good food!
