Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

I have a love/hate relationship with fall. I love crunching through fallen leaves on the sidewalk, bundling up in cozy sweaters, and switching from iced lattes to warm cappuccinos. However, in the back of my head, I know the season will be over before I’m ready and winter will be upon us. Oh, how I hate the cold! So while I’m enjoying fall, I feel the impending weight of winter dragging me down.

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

To keep my spirits lifted I made a batch of pumpkin spice muffins. This may seem too simple an act to brighten one’s day, but it transforms your home into a cozy abode. The warmth of the oven and sweet scent of spiced pumpkin lingered in our apartment throughout the evening. As I savored one of these cupcakes I allowed myself to forget about winter and fully enjoy the beauty of this season. Follow the recipe below to make these cupcakes at your own home and celebrate fall to the fullest!

Last weekend may have been my first trip to Denver, but I know it won’t be my last! I’m still in awe of everything this city has to offer. Only a few more hours until it’s officially the weekend! How will you be kicking off your #stpatricksday celebrations? St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner! Celebrate with a cozy cup of Irish coffee. Head over to the blog for the recipe.
