Okay, can we just talk about these muffins for a while? They are so delicious. You need to make them, now. I almost can't believe how fluffy and perfect they are. I'm pretty sure I need to make this recipe as a cake too. Soon.
I'm leaving for Iceland next week (sounds like I'm moving there but I'm not) and I know myself all too well. I need to write lists everyday because I have a fear of forgetting something. Soon, I'll start dreaming nightmares about missing my flight or forgetting my bag at the airport.
I wish I could be a little more relaxed. Laid back. Especially when it comes to traveling. Besides from the fact that I have travel anxiety, I know it will be an amazing trip and I'm looking forward to it so much. I've packed my camera gear and I'll bring my computer as well so hopefully I'll be able to update with some photos while I'm there!
