About Dora Clemons

How do you sum a person up in a few short lines? Sheesh!! Well here goes, I am a 30 something year old SAHM, wife, and blogger. I am curious about all things pertaining to parenting, and everyday becomes a brand new learning adventure for me and my family. I love being able to share my experiences, give advice, and help others to be as successful as possible! I grew up in the country. Born and raised in NC, but am now in the sunny state of FL (and LOVE it here). Since I hate the cold, this is a great place to be! So... enough about me! I'm so glad you stopped by and I can't wait to hear your feedback. Feel free to drop us a line in the comments section and let me know what you think, would like to see, or if you have an idea for a post!!

    I’m DEFINITELY trying these. My Mimi makes these with orange glaze and they’re my favorite. I just love lemon, and these look so yummy.
