I met my sweet friend Reeve through the wonderful world of blogging and Instagram. She has been such a dear voice online the past few months always full of words of encouragement and prayer I truly feel so blessed to have met her! Reeve is an incredible singer/songwriter and her new album, What Love is All About debuts on November 1st. She sent me an early copy and I have been listening to it ever since it arrived. I love her gorgeous voice and deep beautiful lyrics and have found myself singing along with the catchy melodies. Night Owl is my most favorite track on the albumn and after reading the story and evolution behind the song I love it even more (you can read about it and listen to it HERE).
This morning felt like a baking morning and since we have about a dozen over ripe bananas sitting on the counter I decided to experiment with some vegan banana nut muffins and listen to Reeve's beautiful voice. I love her heart and the way she bares it so beautifully on the album...and the muffins turned out really yummy so I thought I would share the recipe...
