It’s crazy to think that doing what I love is now my job. It’s even crazier to think how many times I almost quit my dream job. Working full-time, freelancing for Health, writing a book, and blogging was so overwhelming at times, I almost decided to throw in the towel with CNC. But, thanks to many, many, many heart-to-heart talks with my husband, I stuck it out. It was worth all of the hard work, stress, and tears.
Carrots ‘N’ Cake is the most rewarding project of my life, and if it wasn’t for my readers, it wouldn’t be alive and well today, so THANK YOU, readers! Thank you for reading everyday and supporting this blog. Each of your comments, emails, and conversations motivate me to continue blogging and better myself each and every day. Here’s to another year!
This morning’s breakfast was a mix oatmeal mix of oats, butternut squash, soy milk, chia seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger, peanut butter, and granola. I felt like a mad scientist adding all of these ingredients to my pot!
And, as always, I drank a glass of iced coffee with breakfast.
