Love ’em and Love y’all: Lemon Butter cookies

It’s a good time to settle in with your dearest one on this day of love.  The weather is unpredictable: warm one day and cold the next.  Best to just be indoors with your sweetie and something tasty to nibble.  The cookie recipe comes from Southern Living February 2010 issue.  I made them last year for VDay because they were easy and my honey likes lemon bars.  Lemon bars are hard to cut into heart shapes, so try this instead.  This year I’ll be making them for the weekend because the Mr. is in the capital city all week for his new job orientation.  That means me and the scrounge cats can eat really weird stuff while he’s away!

Jozetta Helfrich

Jozetta Helfrich met the love of her life at Love Library.

It was a July day in 1939. Jozetta was working as a student assistant behind the circulation desk when her supervisor informed her that a young man nearby surely must have a crush on her.

He keeps looking up at you from the book he’s reading, the supervisor told her, and that book is upside-down!

The young man eventually returned the book to Jozetta. Inside, she found a note he’d left asking if she’d like to go with him to a movie.

If the answer is no, please do a headstand on the circulation desk and clap your feet together twice. But if the answer is yes, simply put this book in the cart.

I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
