Lemon Flowers

The past week has been extremely trying and eventful for all the wrong reasons, however I am trying to stay positive.

You know the old saying of life giving you lemons and making lemonade... instead I made cute 'tarte au citron' cakes that look like flowers.

Things can only get better from here (hopefully!).

Hi Emily,
Sorry to hear things have been difficult lately but hopefully things will get better soon.

The lemon tartes look so lovely. I hope they cheered you up!

They are so cute and I bet delicious!

Thanks everyone. You ladies are so sweet - I think I need to get out and find some inspiration and just appreciate the little things, especially since I can't be home right now.

Things can only get better, at least that's what I keep telling myself.
Let's do lunch and we can moan about life to one another!

They had to make you feel better, the cakes are so beautiful :)
Maybe you should become a baker- open up a specialty shop selling fancy, delicious little concoctions. It'd be a hit!!

I'm sorry to hear that things are such poo right now, they'll improve. You'll find something fabulous- I promise! There's always Italy :)
Ooh, for your future, when things look more constant, we know someone who rents out his house on Elba for a week at a time, with a super rate! Interesting thought :)
Hugs and Pretzels!!

Cait...
So good to see you - as always.

Allison...
I don't think my cakes are dry enough to be a hit in Germany, but I do love baking!

I know you're right that things will improve - and Italy is most definitely on my radar, especially after all of your beautiful photos. I'm really dying to get back to Venice too. You're always so upbeat - Thanks!

Thanks! I think I need to hit up a biergarten if the weather holds out.
