There are just SO many things to celebrate today! Where do I even begin?!?
Ok, first things first, NATE AND I GOT MARRIED!! Yes, in the middle of a hurricane, with our venue almost flooding, power out in buildings all around us (including two of our wedding hotels), rain and winds raging outside, we had the BEST weekend of our lives.
All of our family and friends braved the storm and traveled to North Carolina to celebrate our big day and we could not have been more grateful for their support. Somehow, even with the crazy weather, everything was flawless. The ceremony, the food, the photos, the dancing, the people— words can’t even describe how amazing everything was. They say rain on your wedding day is lucky—- well, friends, we have the BEST luck!
More photos and details to come, I promise 🙂
So besides this huge life event that we’re still celebrating, there is also ANOTHER big moment to recognize today— and that is Pumpkin & Peanut Butter’s 2 YEAR Blog Anniversary! Can you believe this little corner of the internet has already been in existence for 2 years?!?
I certainly can’t!
I started this blog two years ago mainly because I was looking for a creative outlet in my life. We had just picked up and moved to Durham, Nate was diving head first into his first year of law school—- and me—- well, I honestly was in need of a weekend hobby to help me destress from daily life as a teacher and fill my time while Nate studied. Who would have thought that this little blog with not only still be here today, but would still fill my life with so much joy?!
Never would I have thought that I would connect with so many amazing readers and fellow bloggers. Never would I have thought that my recipes would be featured on sites I read every day, like Huffington Post and BuzzFeed. Never would I have thought that I’d get to work with so many fabulous brands to share products that I love with y’all. It’s been a whirlwind, wonderful two years and I can’t wait to see what this year brings for Pumpkin & Peanut Butter!
Now, it would seem only fitting that on this celebration, in the greatest season of them all, we eat some PUMPKIN. Toasted Coconut Pumpkin Spice Donuts to be exact!
YOU GUYS. These donuts are seriously bomb! Tender, warm, cozy pumpkin spice donuts topped with a perfectly sweet vanilla glaze and crunchy toasted shredded coconut. Who knew pumpkin and coconut would be so seriously delicious?? I think it might be my new favorite fall combo.
Better yet, these donuts are made a teensy bit healthy with whole wheat flour and are completely dairy free and vegan. It’s all about that balance, right??
