Begin Again by pattyrose
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11972117/1/Begin-Again
Bella's life philosophies mirror her bakery-business philosophies: 1)  you can't save a burned batch, and 2) there's no turning back once a  batch is finished. It's the same when life gets real: marriage,  children...widowhood all relegate memories of first love to weekly,  monthly, yearly, and then…to occasionally. Unless...unless you're  willing to begin that batch all over again.  Rated M
