The Return

The air outside is crisp and cool and the leaves, in shades of gold and brown, are on the ground fluttering around in wisps of wind rather than rustling on the trees. Indoors, Summer shorts have been put away while long pants and sweaters have readily taken their place. Late nights sweating have made way for cuddling up with a comfy blankets while wearing warm pajamas. Oh yes, Fall is here and it is everywhere.

And in case there was any confusion on what signifies the very best of Autumn for this girl, allow me to clear it up. No, it is not the chill in the air or the changing colors of the leaves. although they are nice. Nor does it have anything to do with the chilly nights and the fuzzy blankets. No. Fall for me is summed up in one little thing. The return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte.


This is the time of year where I can be found at Starbucks multiple times a week, indulging in the best treat on earth (second to the Gingerbread Spice Latte out at Christmas that is). The pumpkin flavored creamer at the grocery store is no match to the true yumminess that is the original Pumpkin Spice Latte. Oh it's love it first sip every single time.


Oh Pumpkin Spice Latte, you with your deliciousness and flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg are the epitome of Fall.

Really, husband? Really? Who orders just a plain coffee when the Pumpkin Spice Latte is available? Blasphemy!

Ahhh, Fall in a cup...

You and I share a favorite drink! Yum! I'm thinking about making Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffins soon too. Pumpkin and Chocolate...what more could a girl want? Fall is by far my most favorite season of all.
