Happy May! It's almost Mother's Day, do you have any plans for the special day? We have our whole family here for lunch with all the moms, it's always a nice gathering and the weather usually cooperates to have the shindig outdoors. It's supposed to be in the mid-70s on Sunday, so I'm happy about that!
This is one of the few years we're not rushing to finish some kind of home DIY project right before the Mother's Day gathering, or at least trying to tidy up a mess mid-project. So far this year, we haven't really done any major home improvement projects around here. There are a few reasons for that - time, energy, budget, and time. Oh, and budget, did I mention that? ;) I must say that I miss being knee deep in some kind of home improvement update sometimes (crazy, right?!), so I'm pretending this post about blueberry muffins is a DIY project, because it is, right?! Homemade=DIY! It's like a mash-up of two of my favorite creative passions, baking and home improvement! If you think about it, baking isn't such a big leap from DIY home improvement and decorating. In both instances, you take a bunch of separate elements (ingredients), put them together in a pleasing palette (palate), and decorate (garnish) them to appeal to the recipient. Just go with me here.
I made these muffins for our neighbors who just had a baby. Hooray for sweet snuggly babies! I love the idea of new life coming into this world and all the possibilities that precious life brings. Babies are like THE ULTIMATE DIY PROJECT!!! (Too far with the DIY analogies? Haha, yes.) I also think new Moms deserve fresh baked somethings because they're sore and tired and their boobs really hurt, amIright?! Blueberry muffins seem cozy and homey for a family with a new baby.
