I haven’t been doing much baking lately (or blogging if you haven’t noticed). I haven’t felt very motivated to do much of anything except keep up with mindless TV shows. I should be working on my college assignments but instead I’m doing this! We are heading home to Canada in exactly one week for Christmas and I can’t wait.
