Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week! Well, I can officially say that I have been living in AZ for a week now! It has been absolutely crazy getting settled in, but I couldn’t be happier! It is so nice to have lots of sunshine and my sister right around the corner! I hope to get out this weekend for an early morning hike! 

But before we sail into the weekend, let me leave you with this incredibly decadent, yet healthy dessert! These cheesecake bars would make a perfect treat for you weekend BBQ! I hope you enjoy! Have an amazing weekend!
