I LOVE PUMPKIN!
Really, it is a favorite food ingredient, flavor, smell, etc. Pumpkin pie is my favorite dessert EVER! (close second and year round fave is carrot cake). My mom’s is the best and it’s not Christmas or Thanksgiving without it. Pumpkin spice candles are some of my favorite for making the house smell homey and cozy. AND…pumpkin spice lattes are the BOMB! They’re back and I’m about to head out to get my first one this morning.
As we move from Summer to Fall (in theory only until the temperature cooperates), I began to think of what I look forward to in the cooler weather and what I will miss from the hot summer.
- pumpkin spice anything (latte, pie, etc)
- fires in the fireplace (me on the couch with a book)
- uggs (or any boots) with skinnies and sweaters
- crisp mornings
- University of Texas football
- fresh berries
- laying by the pool
- flowy skirts and flip flops
- lots of daylight
- peach cobbler
- lake time
Despite my long life in and love of the Lonestar State and its natural heat, I’m a bigger fan of the cooler crisper weather. I love fall and even winter works for me. 100 degrees is never my friend. I need a break! Come on with it!
Ok, I gotta go. A pumpkin spice latte is calling to me and I’m already salivating.
