Hello to all Love, Pasta, and a Tool Belt readers. I was super honored to asked back again by Emily to share a recipe with you while she is out of town. When I shared with you a couple months ago I was still a full time working mom trying to juggle work, family, blogging and whatever else came my way. I am super happy to say I am no longer a full time working mom. Now I am trying to juggle my new life blogging and writing full time. My past job had me super, super miserable for the past 3 years. I wanted to be a children’s book author ever since I was young. Life got in the way of my dreams and I put them on hold. Since I started blogging in 2011 my love of writing returned. Now I am more focused on making that dream a reality and also the reality of someday writing my own cookbook. Now that I am not working full time I have the time to work on what makes me happy.
Last October our life became very chaotic as my Father in law had to have emergency surgery. He survived the surgery and we thought we were on the road to getting him home when things quickly changed. He started having strokes and a month later we brought him home for his last days to be with his family. My Mother in law already had health issues and was declining as well. Within four months of losing my Father in law, we lost my Mother in law as well. So while I was watching two very important people in our life leave us it became apparent that life was entirely way too short to be anything less than happy. It has been quite a struggle to find my rhythm after 15 years of working but I am anxious to see where this journey will lead me next.
Lemon is one of my absolute favorite flavors so I tend to use lemon in a lot of dishes. These Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Bars are a favorite in our house. How can you go wrong with lemon or blueberry?
Thanks Emily for asking me to come back again and share with your readers. I hope you had a great time.
