What do you do when life give you lemons?

First off, let me apologize for not being on top of the blog reading and writing. It has been a rough few months and I have had much on my plate. I am trying to focus on taking things down one at a time and things are starting to look up. When life give you lemons, you make lemonade.

Months ago I wrote about making my nana's pie crust. It has been a feat that no one in my family has been able to completely fulfill. With her gone now, this is the time that the recipe will either live or die. It will either be her legacy or it will be left as a memory. My nana was one of the best and sweetest people I have know in my life and I learned more from her then I even realize. The farm life is dificult and she wore it well. I have been working diligently to master the nana pie crust craft. I am getting close, I can taste it.

That looks fab. I miss my Nan soooo much it hurts. My blog is dedicated to my Nan who taught me so much about life and about myself.
Here's to Nans everywhere and if anybody still has their Nan then you make sure they know how much you love them.
