BIRTHDAY, DECEMBER, SNOW, AND MAGIC



So fall is definitely over, and I must say I quite enjoy the weather..The snowflakes are falling out slowly, and the wind is so gentle.I love how everything is covered in white!
Yesterday was also my birthday, I finally turned 20, my boyfriend and I celebrated it in a great restaurant in Montreal and then we went home for the cake..I am sorry for the picture but the cake kind of fell down because of the heat in the room.But it was still good ^^
What I love about winter also is the food..Hot soups, pancakes and fruits for breakfast, chocolate muesli..I have huge chocolate cravings lately .lol.^^
Will we were walking near the contemporary museum yesterday we saw this big exposition of shining balls, which light up and change pattern just like in shadow plays. Those balls also played a gentle sounds, just like the one whales use to make.
I loved it!
I am sorry I haven't been around a lot lately, but I kept on reading your blogs though I didn't comment. I am sorry for that.But I had an LSAT to prepare, and 4 final essays to prepare, it has been hell.. but I am glad it's over, and I am looking forward to reading and commenting your blogs again..I missed you all, I hope you had a great week! ^^
