Cinnamon Rolls with Vanilla Buttermilk Glaze

As Thanksgiving approaches here in the US, it’s easy to get caught up in planning the big meal, what to pack if you’re traveling or getting things cleared from your desk during the shortened work week. I read Kasey’s beautiful post and it prompted me to pause and take a moment to think.

In my head, I often tell myself that I’m lucky. When orange-red rays from the window forecast a sunny day, I’m grateful. When I wake up next to Marc’s cute, snoozing face, I’m grateful. When I make a friend while picking up a new phone and we become Instagram buddies, I’m grateful.  In those ordinary, but spectacular snippets of life, I try to pause in that moment. I smile to myself. Thankful that not only are my basic needs met, but that there’s a little beauty everywhere. It’s not always possible to appreciate the moment, but that’s always a goal of mine.

Cinnamon Rolls with Vanilla Buttermilk Glaze Recipe // Dula Notes

I’m bringing these cinnamon rolls to my parents’ house for Thanksgiving. I’ve tried a few recipes, but these are the best ones, yet. My Dad loves them and I can’t resist them, either.  One morning I will put these in the oven and everyone will wake up to the strong scent of cinnamon and yeast. The 10 minutes of cooling time will be torture. I hope it becomes another moment to remember.
