simple yogurt lemon loaf

yesterday felt like -500 outside, the extreme cold warning even prompted me to keep the kids home from school (and me avoiding going outside.) we stayed in bed late, never got changed out of our pjs, and played all day.  it should also be noted i'm now on day four of not leaving the house, i'm not even sure i remember what fresh air smells like at this point, ha!
it might be winter outside, but inside it smells like spring.  lemon loaf is my go to spring recipe.  it's just such a heavenly scent, i love everything about it, and it was much needed for this frigid February.
so with the polar vortex happening outside, inside it smells like spring and cozied up by the fireplace it felt like it too.

here's hoping the next couple months hurry up and GTFO.
