    Beautiful Breakfasts- Banana Bread Muffins with Strawberry chunks

    You all know I love breakfast. In our house, we sit down to a proper breakfast together more often than we sit down to a proper dinner. I always make dinner, but sometimes we eat it at different times, or we eat it quickly while watching The Tonight Show before heading to bed. I close 3 days per week at work which means late night, out of the crock pot dinners, and Kurtis’ schedule is all over the place!

    But, we often have mornings together and I cherish that so much. That’s why I started my Beautiful Breakfasts series! To encourage you all to sit down with your families and have breakfast together. It is the most important meal of the day after all, it is so often skipped, and it shouldn’t be!

    Easter Brunch Inspiration

    I cannot believe Spring is almost here! I love all the seasons for different reasons. I feel like Spring and Fall are so fun because it’s when the seasons really change! Spring sort of leads into Summer and Fall sort of fades into Winter, but With Spring and Fall you really get the change of going from cooler weather to warmer weather and vice versa!

    I love spring colors. And I love Easter. Growing up in a Christian family (as a pastor’s kid, no less) Easter was always kind of a long day. My dad always teaches a Saturday night service, an Easter sunrise service, and 3 regular Sunday morning services, so by the time Church is over he is wiped. So we usually spent our Easters eating yummy food and napping. Which is the best way to spend it! As I got older, we started having brunch after church to spend time together as a family before heading off to nap. Now that I have my own family I definitely want to include fun Easter traditions. Sunday brunch is always a must, but Easter brunch is even better!

    I teamed up with my lovely friend Becca from Lashes + Honey to put together this lovely brunch! We used Spring and Easter as our inspiration.
