Fall is made for pumpkin, hot chocolate, bon fires and hoodies! Speaking of mugs… this is my new favorite mug. Anyone else obsessed with Pumpkin Spice and everything nice? It’d be perfect on a brisk morning as the sun rose. Of course accompanied with these delicious Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins! I act like I have a lot of mornings where I relax and watch the sun rise. Sorry, I don’t, but it sure does sound nice doesn’t it?

Perfect Pumpkin Muffin Recipe with Chocolate Chip Muffins for Fall!

It’s busy again you guys, like so busy. I need all the help I can to get my kids out the door in the morning to catch the bus! These little Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins are just the answer. They are loaded with fall flavor and they have chocolate, so can you really go wrong? I think not!

Miss K is riding the bus now. Wow. I think I was more nervous that she was that first day. As we walked out to wait for the bus she says in her cute little 5 year old voice, “Mommy, I’m scared.” My heart broke. I wanted to scoop her back into my arms, rush her inside and protect her forever. Can you say helicopter Mom? But, I refrained. I encouraged her and told her she was a big girl, smiled and sent her on her way. All while my heart was breaking inside.

The bus came and she bounced off to get on it smiling as she went.

She may have said she was scared but she sure didn’t look like it! I’m so proud I have equipped her with the tools that she needs to spread her wings and fly. It makes me proud. I hope she becomes a strong independent young woman and I can’t wait to watch her even though I’m sure I’m going to have many moments where I want to scoop her back up and rush her home to protect her.
