The rainy season has begun in Arequipa. Today is a little bit cool from the overcast skies. This past week was a hard week for me. For the first time, I experienced grieving for a family member that was very dear to me… far from my family. Part of grieving is being with those that you love, and I am thankful to live in a time of wonderful technology. Watching a live stream of the funeral service and getting to see family members shortly after the service provided closure for me that I don’t think I would have experienced. I am still working on a post to honor my Granny’s memory, but today was a day to rest from all the tears that have been cried the past week.
With the weather and the emotional toil my body has been through, baking, chocolate, and blogging serve as great therapy for me. What is more perfect than a Coffee Toffee Bar and a hot cup of peppermint tea?
