I touched on my blog name a little in my bio, but I wanted to spend a little time and explain where the name came from.
When I was young, I lived in the country and my dad farmed. I remember the tractors, barns, and having lots of animals. One day after it had rained, I wanted to make mudpies but of course you need a place to bake. I put my mudpie on the step to my dad’s tractor. The little slot was a perfect oven. I do not think my dad thought so, and I was in trouble.
Later as I got older and we moved to town, my mom and I spent many summer days having lunch outside by the pool at our picnic table. Our favorite meal was hotdogs and lemonade. I remember that was a fun time that made me happy.
My blog mudpies and lemonade comes from the troubles or mess of the mudpies and the sweet happy memories with the lemonade; a lot like life, a little messy at times, but also sprinkled with happy and sweet memories.
