Lemon Coconut Truffles - A refreshing citrus and creamy lemon dessert that everyone will love! | The Love NerdsWho says lemon can’t be made in the fall and winter? I know that pumpkin and apple are the big flavor winners right now, and I’m all on board, but I also love the refreshing, citrus taste of lemon year round. Plus, I had a really good reason to make a batch of these Lemon Coconut Truffles not too long ago – my mom’s birthday.

I don’t always talk about my family outside my husband too much on the blog. I have done little features or shouts outs here and there, but I generally try to keep their private life, well, private! It isn’t always easy either. As a very open person, I will often find myself going back to edit something out because I realize my sister or my best friend may not want that information available for thousands of people to read. Boundaries – they are real and hard!

But because I can, let’s give my mom a little shout out today. It is a very cliche idea, but my mom is one of my best friends. With a big age gap between me and my closest sibling, I was mom’s buddy. Together we ran errands, went to lunch, watched old movies and mysteries, read books, did crafts, etc. These are still the things we do together today almost weekly. At some point I should probably give her an official title from The Love Nerds for all the brainstorming sessions and shopping trips she does with me for this blog.

She is, truly, incredible. I will never understand how she does it all, especially with 4 loud, opinionated, and stubborn children and now 5 grandkids in the bunch that no doubt take after their parents and aunts/uncles. It actually took 6 years for Bryan to see my mom lose her cool, and we had even lived with my parents for over a month between apartments. It probably took 6 hours for him to see me lose mine. 😉

This is all to say that Lemon Coconut Truffles are the least I could do for her birthday, and she loved them! Head down for the recipe and don’t miss the giveaway opp at the bottom!
