Muffin Monday Mix [001]


Do you ever wake up on Monday morning and feel like there’s a gloomy cloud hovering above your head?

Something that brightened the start of my week in college was the Muffin Mondays tradition. Every Monday late afternoon, my friends would organize a quick gathering.

We’d bake some muffins and listen to some happy tunes while chatting about our day.

So instead of focusing on the blues, I spent some time today working on a mix and digging up a delicious muffin recipe for you.

*It’s just about the end of the day here in Shanghai, but I think Monday’s just beginning for those of you on the other side of the world. Tonight’s been really tough, to be honest. I received a heart-breaking news tonight. Please keep me and my family in your thoughts.

    […] I still get the “Monday blues,” especially when I have a lot on my plate for the week. There are days when I feel utterly disconnected from everyone, especially living far away from my friends and family.
