28&29 with Nino and Marinette?

This one was a lot of fun to write! I’ve also posted it to ao3. Thanks for the request!

“Are you sure you want to do this?”

“Yeah, why wouldn’t I?”

Marinette frowned down at their ingredients. “Well, macarons are really tough. I still mess them up sometimes.”

“I know but…” Nino shrugged. “It’s your favorite, right?”

She nodded slowly, a smile spreading over her lips. “Yes.”

“Then, I want to learn how to make them.”

“Okay, but you can’t say I didn’t warn you.” She tied off her apron behind her.

“So, what happens first?” he asked.

“Well, we have the baking sheets ready, and we both have our aprons on-”

“Did you give me one that says kiss the cook on it?” he asked, staring down at it.

“Maybe.” She grinned. “You don’t like it?”

“I definitely didn’t say that.”

“Tell you what…” Marinette gathered the almond flour and sugar. “For some extra motivation, how about I give you a kiss for each perfect macaron you make.”

He smiled. “I can work with that.”

Future Plans

Hey, all!

Like you, I’m more than ready to kick 2017 to the curb and am looking ahead to what 2018 will bring.

I’ve never been a resolutions kind of gal (though I fully support those who make them!), instead coming up with things I hope to accomplish.  But no pressure!

(It’s tougher now, with my life-altering disease, to do pretty much everything, so I’m taking those goals down from ‘lofty’ to ‘possibly-maybe’.)

Another thing about setting these goals: they are totally flexible.  Nothing is written in permanent marker. I can alter and/or drop a goal as the year progresses.

It’s about not putting limitations or undue stress on myself, while giving me something to look forward to.

So far, it’s a manageable and achievable list.

Unsurprisingly, several are food-related!


Master French macarons

Make Pierogies from scratch

Master fresh pasta

Create the Wynonna Earp treats I’ve been planning

Learn and work with the airbrush machine (for food!)

Write More (My first NaNo went well and I’m eager to keep at it)

LEAVE THE HOUSE MORE (It isn’t easy, and it is exhausting, but more of this)

Catch up on comics

Whittle down my ‘to read’ book pile

That’s it so far.

What about you? What small/major/silly/important thing(s) are you hoping to do next year?

And in case I don’t ‘see’ you later, this is my message for each and every one of you:

Believe that you are worthy of love and happiness. Remember that you matter. You are needed. Your voice counts. Never give up hope. Don’t stop fighting. Laugh and love as often as you can. Cry when you need to. Never be afraid to ask for help. It’s ok to step back and take a break.  Drink lots of water. Surround yourself with the things that make you feel happy and safe. Try something new, but not at the cost of your comfort. Be brave, even when it scares you. Take care of yourself. Be kind. Support those you love, but save some for yourself. Be as close to the person you were meant to be as you can, but take your time. You’ll get there.

I wish you all a much better new year!
