I really wanted to make cookies for today’s recipe. But I posted cookies on Monday, so I didn’t know if you would want two cookies in a row. But c’mon…how could you be mad at me after I made you these decadent double chocolate chip cookies stuffed with a little surprise?
I hope you’re okay with more cookies. Double the cookies, double the fun.
I’m not going to lie – this week was hard. It kicked me when I was down and pointed its finger at me and laughed. There were some personal things that happened, plus it’s finals week. Ugh. Ever had one of those weeks?
Actually, ever had one of those years? 2016 was tough. Of course, yes, many good things did happen – like this blog growing! – and I am very lucky. But boy, did I endure some trials and tribulations this year! I may go more in detail about this in an end-of-the-year post (would you want to read that?), but let’s just say this year forced me to look deep within and figure out who I truly was and what I want in life. I know I will look back on this year as a time of real transformation.
As times goes on, I become more and more confident in the fact that everything happens for a reason, and that just when it seems like you’ve lost something good, something even better comes along. It’s like the universe saying, here, I know you’re upset, but I’ve got bigger plans for you.
Is it too woo-woo of me to start talking about the universe? I’m totally becoming my mother… 😉
While this week was hard, and my initial reaction was to semi-freak out as always, I realized that it was going to be okay. I mean, I have a roof over my head, an education, (freaking delicious) food on the table, a cat🐱…I really can’t ask for much else. Everything figures itself out.
Okay, so kind of headache-inducing week = cookies. Which we had on Tuesday. But that wasn’t enough – I needed more cookies. Chocolate cookies. Stuffed with seed buttery goodness. Oh yeah baby, that’ll make my week better.
