Spring is on the onset and I’m craving some much needed sunshine!!!  As I’ve mentioned a few times, I loathe…loathe winter and Indiana has some wicked, fierce cold weather. I get those crabby, winter blues, sort of like I’m living groundhog day in a rotation pattern with no end to the gloomy skies of gray, etc. 

Doesn’t sound like a pretty picture does it?  But alas…it comes!  Sunshine on my shoulder makes me happy, right?  Happily, it was 70 lovely degrees for mid-March today.  Perfect for these Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies to make an appearance and shine!
