Happy First Monday of February!
Wow! Can you believe we are already welcoming the very first Monday of February 2016! Time is surely the one thing which we can not hold, and it always feels like it’s flying so fast.
January has flown in a flash already. So like always we can say that time is flying super fast — or much more faster than imaginations could fly! 😉
January is already over?? When? How? So for all who think like me, this would certainly motivate you.
“The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.”
― Michael Altshuler
So, time does fly and that undeniably is not in our control, but what is in our control — how we live it fully. How we cherish each and every second of it.
So about the last month which just flew past — I lived it fully. I was on holidays for more than half of the month. It was super fun. Thus I can say I lived it fully. For me, it was getting to spend this last holiday with family. I got way less work done, and it was worth it. So it was an awesome month full of beautiful memories and lots of fun.
Adoria was just so excited to get to hang out with her Grandpas, Grannies and cousins, which is without a doubt the best feeling ever. I am so glad we could do so many fun things in India. And that made me realize that we need to have this kind of break at least once every year. 😀
For past couple of weeks, it was super cold and full of snow here in Finland. And I had lots of yummy treats in this cold weather. So I lived the whole month as I wanted to! Cheers to that!
As this is the beginning of a new month and with this I am here to make you feel a little more refreshed. So today I am here with some yummy treat prepared with dark chocolate, which you will definitely love.
Why chocolate? Because chocolate season starts now. Because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. And now it’s my time to share my first recipe for this Valentine. Which means, I will be sharing some awesome chocolicious and absolutely delicious dish in the days to come.
