Wowzers.

I just turned 24 and I’ve spent nearly 20 years in school! Graduating college in May 2014 means this is only the second year I haven’t done the whole back to school thing. The smell of fresh notebooks, the anticipation of the first day, and meeting new teaches. Nostalgia….

Somedays I miss learning and getting to see my friends everyday. But most days I’m glad I no longer have homework! 🙂

Whether you’re going back to school or your kids are these apple cupcakes will make a great treat for the first day of school. Surprise them with one in their lunch box on the first day, or just treat them while you chit chat after school!
