First week of new job- accomplished.

While this new transition was a bit bumpy, the end of the week I was so thrilled with my job. Making a change like this is scary- one you become comfortable it's easy to be complacent and continue on in your norm. But pushing yourself is how you grow- facing your fears and anxiety allow you to be able to take on whatever the day might throw your way. 

Though I am still on my journey to taking in the moment, being less rigid about everything, and not freaking out when all doesn't go as planned, I'm happy that the little things no longer stress me out. 

With that being said though, I am currently still on my 6 week stint of no gluten (due to a protocol to determine why I have terrible eczema). There are so many options of gluten free bread that are delicious, but sometimes they feel like they are breaking the bank a little. I'm excited to share this delicious fall loaf with you that is gluten free and full of flavor! Toast this up for the perfect compliment to slabs of peanut butter or avo- or both! xx
