Peanut Butter Cupcakes plus a giveaway

Last year, I was preparing to move from Maine to North Carolina. What a hectic time! I was nervous about changing locations. I was sad to leave my friends and family. I was thankful my husband was ready to move. Also, my kids didn't complain much. They did like the warmer weather. We had to pack up a whole household in a crazy amount of time. Even with the move, we have seen our family often. We keep in touch with our friends back home. We still like the weather here.

To celebrate my daughters birthday, I made her some peanut butter cupcakes. They are moist and my husband loved them. My daughter requested chocolate frosting for the peanut butter cupcakes.
