This Chocolate Cinnamon Pull-Apart bread was a centerpiece for a festive brunch in our old dining room. It serves as a pleasant reminder of warming our home with bread baking in the oven, and a fully, cozy room. We celebrated the season, and time together.
For my 39th year, I wanted to celebrate! There were multiple festivities, various occasions with friends, time pushing myself past my comfort zone, times dancing like I was in high school again, a special dinner with my partner, and a gathering around our loooong dining room table. We completely filled the table for the first time, and my heart felt full of love and gratitude. Plus, I have a very boozy Mint Julep Bundt Cake recipe for you. Cheers!
This year, in particular, has felt like a whirlwind, but taking time to look up at the trees, and at the warm hues sweeping the mountainside, has helped me to feel more grounded and present. A warm bite of an apple cider doughnut would help too. Cinnamon-sugar mindfulness at its best.
