A magical young one in our world recently illuminated for me how she believes you can infer so much about a person or a household based solely on whether there are fresh lemons In the kitchen. Pondering that reflection I have been tracking my own love affair with lemons and it has led me back to my childhood and the Meyer lemon bush that resided outside my bedroom window, and the one tended by my father along his fence line. My East Coast raised mom thought citrus trees in her yard were the height of luxury, and I guess that lemon appreciation was passed down to this California girl as well. One of my favorite lemon memories growing up was making midnight lemon meringue pies and tart lemon bars with my dad who also passed down his love of the lemon to me. It was a dual appreciation legacy I guess. Starting my day with lemon water, moving on to lemon in my tea, maybe some of the Fireman’s epic lemonade in the afternoon, and occasionally a splash of our Hawks’ Perch Lemoncello to round out the day are just some of the constellation the feisty lemon projects on my daily core routines. A gratitudinous gift for sure. One of the big little things to be so grateful for. 🍋🍋🍋  365 days of gratitude...day 16 (16/365/y13) #365DaysofGratitude #GratitudeGirl #DailyGratitude #EverydayMagic #gratefulone #mysticmamas #puremagic #together #peace #sacredplants #lemon #hawksperch
