Ahhh lemon bars…these are seriously the most perfect lemon bars!

Two of my favorite things, the color yellow, summer and lemons…okay that was three! Hehe! I love summer so much, the sunshine and going outside. I don’t however love the heat in the summer in Florida. But I do love the sunshine. I like to hold onto summer as long as I can and with these lemon bars, you can too!
