Vegan Pumpkin Bread

IMG_0715 This is the second time I make pumpkin bread this season, the first time I made it really quickly and ended up with too much cinnamon. I was disappointed, but it was a good reminder for me to stop rushing, be mindful, and in the moment. I still got to work on that. I know it will take time, I can be patient, as long as I see progress (which I am) then it's all good. Even though at the time it sucked that my bread was kinda ruined, I'm thankful it happened because I needed a quick lesson from life to remember to do my best and that no matter how good I become, I still have to make all things with love.
