I owe you an apology. Maybe I just woke up from a very long winter’s nap? With very little cold weather, but still with no leaves on trees, if it’s below 50, I just want to do nothing. And that mindset seems to speed up time without me really knowing what I’ve done. My apologies…

However, a simple statement from on of my gluten-free clients caused me to get over myself and create something awesome, even if Pumpkin Spice related! “I love pumpkin bread but I can’t eat it so I don’t even make it” That was it.
