Vegan Chocolate Truffles Recipe


So how goes it? Really, how are you? I know this time of year can get crazy so I want to touch base with you.
I have to admit, I’m so far behind on all the holiday stuff. I try to keep breathing and reminding myself to let go and do what I can.

I love this time of year, but it brings a flood of emotions that I thought I buried way deep and the overwhelm is all around me. Seems like everyone is rushing around, checking their lists, and moving fast.

I sometimes want to escape. I fantasize about lying in bed in my pjs crack-watching Scandal on Netflix (I watched this season for the first time so I need to catch up with Season 1, 2 and 3. I have to figure out what the hell is going on!).
