Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing

img_9594Two of my favorite things are apple pie and cinnamon rolls so why not combine them! Fluffy, rich, and topped with a cream cheese icing makes these a Saturday morning must.

Since Michael and I are breakfast/brunch addicts I have been taking advantage of our Saturday mornings off for new breakfast ideas and this one was a hit. If you're looking for a healthy breakfast option you may want to bypass this one but if you want delicious cinnamon heaven then keep on scrolling!

{Hello 30!} When Michael asked how I was feeling about this birthday I said, “I’ve always wanted to be in my 30s!”. Blame it on Jennifer Garner’s thirty flirty and thriving or the fact that I’ve had the personality of a 30 year old woman since I was 18 😂, but today I’m living the dream! My twenties were full of joy, discovery, and so much growth. By the grace of God, I became a stronger and more confident person than I ever thought I could be. It’s hard for me to think about the past decade of my life without tearing up and every bit of it has to do with the man beside me. My best friend, confidant, cheerleader, champion, bodyguard, and simply everything! So to you, Michael Cermak, thank you for lifting me up and making all of my dreams come true! Here’s to 30! 
.
P.S. We’ve been falling in love with Georgetown/DC the past week and decided to hire someone to take some pictures of us together after seeing how many I have of just me from our other trips this year 😂 Thank you @cheyennemacielphotography for this sneak peak! If you’re in the DC area you must use her!
