If I ever run out of stuff to put in muffins, or combinations of stuff to put in muffins, I will be very sad.
It’s officially “the holidays” now. We’re busy party-planning, present shopping and getting ready for travel. Basically it’s an entire month packed with my favorite things. And this year it will include our first trip to Dave’s parents’ new place in Florida, which will be mighty nice in the middle of winter. I’m also excited to go home to Kansas and watch my “little” brother graduate with his Masters degree.
It’s crazy to think that 2015 is so close. It’s going to be a really busy year – lots of family weddings, new babies and fun travel lie ahead – a big contrast to this year, where we didn’t do a lot of personal travel, but did a lot for work.
Even in the busiest, craziest of weeks, Dave and I always take a little time for ourselves over breakfast. On the weekdays, that means waking up early enough to enjoy a pot of French press, toast and listening to Marketplace. It’s so nice to have few quiet moments together before we rush off to work.
On the weekends, breakfast usually means muffins (or another form of baked good). Muffins are my zen place. I hope that never changes!
