Today I changed my soles. No, not soul, soles. I was at the gym and decided that today I would put a different pair of insoles into my shoes to see what that would change in my workout. It wasn’t life altering or earth shattering but it did provide a different perspective. It allowed me to move a little differently, notice movements in my step and create a new experience.
So I’m taking that lesson for today, and I’m going to shift things juuuust a tad. What can I glean from changing? And, what should I change? I’m going to start with what I usually do. Instead of sitting in my favorite spot, I’ll choose a new one. I’ll brush my teeth with my left hand, I’ll choose a different flavor of gum! Today is an experiment in minor shifts.
I’m not sure what I’ll learn, but I’ll be sure to share it with you.
Bliss Bakery – Gluten Free Food For The Masses
There’s a new bakery in Santa Rosa, CA called Bliss Bakery. When I heard about a new gluten-free, allergy friendly bakery in town I knew I had to try it. My husband and I decided to stop by while cruising around town doing errands just on the off-chance that this bakery had some delicious vegan treats left at 4:55pm.
We pulled up outside of the small bakery, located in little neighborhood in downtown Santa Rosa. When we parked right in front of the door the first thing we noticed was the sign on the door said ”shut”, which we found quaint and disappointing. But, we were in luck! When we looked inside, a short sweet brunette was motioning for us to come in. We obliged, of course.
It turned out that she (I’m assuming she’s the owner) was on her way to Wavy Gravy’s birthday party and was very excited to get to the festivities. However, she was as friendly and happy as can be to share her baked goods with us. We took a look around at the tiny space, just barely big enough for a few tables and chairs. It still smelled of delicious sweet and savory treats and I imagined what it must smell like early in the morning when everything was still baking.
She had just a few items left from the day, most of which were vegan that she was saving in a pink cake box almost as if she were waiting for us to arrive. One special treat in the box was a toffee cupcake which she quickly broke in half for my husband and I to try. It was delicious! We asked for a few in a box to take with us, with the delicious vanilla icing on top of course.
All of Bliss Bakery’s goodies are gluten-free, most of the treats are vegan and they serve kombucha on tap. Flying Goat coffee and tea is also served throughout the day to accompany the fantastic food.
Overall, I was very pleased with my experience and I highly recommend. The staff is very accommodating and seem genuinely happy to share the sweetness. If you’re in Santa Rosa, definitely stop by.
