When life gives you lemons, ditch the lemonade- make a lemon poppy seed cake instead
The word itself comes as sigh of relief, an exhale that heals the mind, the body and most definitely the spirit.
And while I love those long, lazy days spent watching TV, reading a book or admiring the bright petal hues that group together in clusters of flowers, I will miss this past year.
School may not necessarily be the most positive experience for a lot of people. But for me, especially towards the end, it was. I am lucky to have had such awesome classmates, caring teachers and patient parents. I am lucky to have lived in Poland and completed my schooling here. Next year will be a blank slate. I will have to start anew in a foreign place that I already fear for its unfamiliarity. But there’s plenty of time before things change. Right now, I’m going to enjoy this long pause, this break from reality, and I’m going to share a recipe for lemon cake, my favorite summer dessert.
