It’s been a hectic two weeks with all the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Today was a chance to sleep in and relax before heading out for an afternoon with family. M and I made muffins and then took a drive over to our house for a tranquil walk in the woods.
A fresh batch of vegan cranberry walnut muffins for breakfast
