I know, this is a pretty deep quote to pair with muffins but who cares!

I too, believe that we can learn something from every single person that crosses our path including a stranger that is walking down the street. It is a pretty magical thought if you are open to receiving it. That being said–lets make some muffins you and your family will love!
