Chocolate’n’Waffles turns 1!

While the rest of the world was celebrating the beginning of a new year at midnight, I blew the candle standing proudly on my home-made madeleine to wish Chocolate’n’waffles’ Blog a happy first blogiversary! (Cakes are too 2016 so I decided to go with the new hype, πŸ˜‹)


Thanks so much to all of my followers and friends for the chats, book recommendations, fun and support. I never thought I could carry a project for this long. I was sure my blog would end up like my Sim babies (you don’t want to know…) But the blog is still breathing and looking good (I think!) so I guess I’m not such a bad blog-mother! The fun is still here and the books are threatening to take over the apartment so there is no plan on stopping soon.

I wish you all a very bookish 2017! May your days be filled with those little precious moments that make happiness and all the love you deserve! (and books, so many books)

    1. Madeleines are so good, they remind me of my childhood. I would LOVE TO SHARE!!! I’m still hoping they invent an app to send food from one computer to another!! Thanks so much, I’m just still so surprised that the motivation for blogging and the excitement for books is so strong that I can’t believe it’s been a year. (and I’m starting the second year by replying so so so late to comments, haha!)
