As I get older, little things seem to hurt more. An old injury that I could run through in my twenties now seems to irritate me more in my thirties. I can’t pull all night study sessions like I used to in my earlier college years. I require sleep. Like more than two hours of sleep a night sleep.
There are a lot of things I miss about my twenties.
But there are a lot of things I also love about my thirties.
Like the fact that I’ve been running better. I may have a slower pace, but I enjoy running now. I am more relaxed during my runs. I can also take the time to enjoy the things that I love to do with the person and people that I enjoy doing them with. I have a solid group of friends, a wonderful family, and a loving husband. I am enjoying school without the distractions I had in my twenties of boys, parties, a full time job with full time school. I love my job as a mother, a wife and working from home and going to school part time. I only thought I was busy in my twenties. My thirties are a lot busier, but also more fulfilling.

Cinnamon Roll Quick Bread
For the bread:
2 cups all purpose or white whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
1/3 cup vanilla or plain greek yogurt
For the swirl:
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1-2 tbsp water
For the glaze:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, combine the ingredients for the bread. Stir until all ingredients are mixed well. Pour mixture into a lightly greased bread pan.
In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, cinnamon and water. Drop by tablespoons onto the top of the bread in random areas. Draw a knife through the loaf to make a marble pattern with the swirl mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove the loaf from the oven and allow it cool for 10-15 minutes before removing it from the pan to finish cooling completely on a wire rack.
Mix together the glaze ingredients and pour over the loaf evenly. Serve.
