It is true that no matter how far away I get from home or how many new desserts I try, chocolate chip cookies will always be my number one. Sunday for the first time in two months I tasted a homemade chocolate chip cookie… actually it was more like cookies. I can’t say that I forgot how addicting they were but I guess I didn’t realize how much I missed them. And even though I was a little out of practice I must say that they turned out pretty well. By the way, on Monday, there were none left 🙂

Okay enough about cookies.

Monday marked the two month anniversary  of my arrival in France and boy has it gone by fast. I must admit that not every day has passed smoothly but for the most part it has been a great journey so far.

Right now I just happen to be in the middle of a 10 day break from school and I am spending most of the break in Angers with my host grandmother. So far I have spent the time relaxing but it’s not all fun and games as I have quite a bit of homework to do.  I do have to say I don’t mind having some time to sleep in as I was starting to get a little burnt out from school. It is hard to be motivated when I have so much time on my hands. I am finding that I spend most of my time procrastinating and I keep saying that I need to do my homework but then I find so many other things to do like facebook, skype, this blog and well I hate to admit it but Marie and I have been watching copious amounts of Gossip Girl as well… some things never change.

Despite all of my distractions I have managed to write a summary of the First World War and although it is now covered in red (Marie corrected it for me) I feel quite accomplished.

Today as it has been raining all day, Marie and I started off the day by baking a cake… it turned out pretty well if I do say so myself 🙂

Feel free to feast your eyes.I hope you are as big of a chocolate fan as I am. I would share, but it would be a bit difficult!

We all like to be silly every now and then… right?? 🙂 Happy Thursday Everyone!
