Pumpkin Spice Muffins

IMG_9877Our world has been pretty insane lately….

Since the passing of my in-laws we’ve been going like mad to handle all the legal and financial aspects of closing out their estate.  On top of that we were already committed to a number of projects and events that we couldn’t/wouldn’t miss in September.  October went by in a blur and now it is November.

The holidays are upon us now…. time for honoring old traditions and also making some new ones.  Brian and I hope to be able to slow down a bit this holiday season.  He’s trying to reign me in… I tend to go overboard during the holidays… scheduling us to host and attend more events than it’s possible to attend and/or enjoy.  Cookie Swaps and Open Houses and visits to every single holiday event…. well, they all seem like good ideas in November…. then come mid-December I’m kicking elves and snarling at Santa.  Not so merry anymore….. Hopefully we can slow down a bit more this year… take a bit more time to ourselves to just enjoy the holiday and each other.

Speaking of things to slow down and enjoy… bake a batch of these muffins and enjoy with a cup of tea and a good book.  🙂
