Happy Saturday! We have a weekend full of wedding things (including cake tasting!) and puppy playing. I have to admit, the first week with Maddie was pretty crazy, including a trip to the vet for some bowel issues, but it was crazy in a good way. I’m looking forward to doing some wedding planning things, since it seems the wedding hasn’t been in the front of my mind lately…making sure Maddie is peeing, pooping, and eating has!
Before we get started with our day, I wanted to share these fun muffins with you because they are really fabulous! Their lemon flavor makes them perfect for the spring time. I love baking with lemon in the spring time…for some reason it just seems fitting. Adding the strawberries makes these muffins even more spring-like. The muffins are super moist and have a great light lemony flavor. If you wanted, you could switch up the berries in them. I think raspberries or blueberries would be great too!
