Being a mom to Sam is one of the most fulfilling and rewarding parts of my life. He is such a delight and being his mom is a wonderful task. That little boy brings me such joy! As he grows, it’s amazing to watch his personality and confidence grow.
For Mother’s Day, Mike and I take time for a family day, filled with fun. It’s important to me to stay connected to my guys, no matter how busy our schedules become. I also want to create those precious memories with Sam. The time passes so quickly, so I want to capture all of it I can!
Sam has been making hints about a special Mom’s Day for me. I think Mike must have put a bug in his ear. Sam wanted to know my favorite breakfast. When I mentioned these cinnamon swirl cupcakes he wanted to help me make them immediately. I’m not sure if he thinks they’ll last until Mother’s Day (they won’t!) or if he thinks he can make them by himself now but it was just precious to this mama! Here’s to breakfast in bed!
These delicious cupcakes are oh so delicious — plus simple to create. They’re made even better with eggs from Burnbrae Farms.
