Fruit and Chocolate Granola Bars

I just want to thank you all so much for bearing with Brian and I as we get used to this new lifestyle of working hard and playing less.

We haven’t had time for many Thirsty Thursdays or elaborate dinners, but I trust you know the feeling.  It’s called life.

I joked with my family this weekend that home ownership is no joke. I get that this place is only 500 square feet bigger than our last apartment, but it feels like a never ending clean/organize fest.

Anyway, with all this work and hardly any play, I need my energy/. And that is why I masked all of this dried fruit with chocolate in my granola bars.  I get the extra boost and it tastes like chocolate. Win.
