I was in the mood to bake chocolate chips cookies tonight. I looked through my bookmarked recipes and decided to try a chocolate chip coconut oatmeal recipe.
I turned on some music, started adding ingredients into the mixer and had myself a little dance party in the kitchen and did a couple of twirls. I was inspired by the photography e-course that I just stared this week and took some twirly photos.
