Surprise! I now live in Wisconsin. I didn’t mention anything on here about moving because it has been a WHIRLWIND of a thing. Like pack up in two weeks and BOOM, hubs and I apartment hunting in Wisconsin for his new job. Yay! I’m very excited for him.
My hubby is a graphic designer and he got a job in a town just north of Milwaukee. We’ve both lived in Oklahoma our whole lives and while we will always love Oklahoma, we were ready to experience life in another part of the country. So we took it! Quit our jobs, packed up, and made the long drive up North… which means I need to order snow boots. STAT. It’s been crazy at times but so far a fun adventure. :)
I was really, really going to try and post these last week but it turns out when you uproot your life and you’re in the middle of figuring out your new life, your brain doesn’t have enough bandwidth to write even a sentence. Or at least mine didn’t. And it felt insignificant to try and just write about chai spiced muffins when SO MUCH was happening in my life. It feels good to finally share it with you.
Now we can sit down to these chai spiced muffins. :)
In general, I like to keep my breakfast healthy but I cannot resist adding a little indulgence in the fall. These muffins are delightful on their own with the cozy chai spices but adding a little glaze sends them over the top.
