Lemon on My Mind

Sadly all things sunny are starting to fade with the end of the summer, I have been obsessed with all things flavored lemon! Lemon bars, lemon ices, lemon fashion :-), lemon scents! It's a fresh twist especially for desserts that makes tasty treats not unbearably sweet! This obsession is definitely reminiscent of my temporary love with grapefruit . . .


Love love Lily!!
