While work has felt busier than ever and the weather has (FINALLY) started to cool down, I'm happy to say it's been a great week.

A week full of acceptance, love, gratitude, and confidence. 

As I talk much about acceptance, being present, and managing anxiety, it is hard to actively implementing those every day. It is no easy feat and takes time- but it's starting to feel like things are slowly changing.

"Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall"- F. Scott Fitzgerald

To help continue kicking off weeks full of gratitude, happiness, and less panic attacks, I've whipped up these protein apple muffins for the perfect pick-me-up afternoon snack. As a I prepare for my new job (IN JUST 1 WEEK) I've been working on stocking up on the best, clean, and delicious snacks to bring with me.

Enjoy xx
