Food is Love: Key Lime Bars

Yesterday, Leslie made these incredible key lime bars* for my birthday. Scott made blondies, Renee made a chocolate raspberry cake and Tom made brownies. I gained 2,000 pounds in one day, and it was worth it.

I feel very loved. And, as I write this, I'm reminded of how lucky we are that life is continual change. Last Friday, I was giving a eulogy for a dear friend. Today, I'm basking in the abundance of a most-excellent birthday.

It may sound trite, but it's true: Life is good. And all our losses and tears make the happy times so much sweeter.

*Note to Leslie: There were 9 million key lime recipes on the Martha Stewart site, so if I grabbed the wrong one, would you let us know? Thanks! Or, we could just eat our way through the recipes. Hmmmm ...
