Paleo Skillet Cherry Crumble

I'm alllll about the small wins this week. 

Small wins are...

...when you walk into the grocery store, and perfectly ripe cherries are on sale. 

...when you bring home a cherry pitter, and your boyfriend is totally mesmerized by said pitter, and proceeds to pit all of the cherries in the house for you, just for fun.

...when a cherry crumble first comes out of the oven, and fills the house with the scent of vanilla and plump baked berries. 

Small wins are...

...when you reach the top of a really big hill on your bicycle, that you were sure you would have to stop and walk up. 

...when you finish that bike ride and remember you just made cherry crumble.

...when leftovers from said cherry crumble are still in the fridge, and they taste just as good as the day before. 

What are your small wins this week? (They should probably include this Cherry Crumble).
