Is it already October folks?! I can’t believe how fast the time flies! And I feel like since the kids are back to school, I haven’t done nothing, but laundry, cooking, kids homework and it goes in the viscous circle, non stop! I mean “hello” I need a break! I need a small break, take a deep breath, sit down, take a book, read and sip on “Fall”… ehh ….to sip on warm Pumpkin Spice Latte…ahhh!
I love pumpkin spice and all Fall baking treats involved pumpkin, clove, nutmeg or cinnamon. It’s telling me soon, soon (I don’t know, if I should say it out loud, but..) soon the Christmas will come.
Best to enjoy this Pumpkin Spice latte is after long walks in the park or after hike in the woods with your family or friends. This long walk wondering in piles of falling colorful leaves. Breathing cooler crisp air; wishing you have brought gloves and scarf for your walk and now trying to cover your entire body in this long, stretched out sweater and warm boots. Best way to enjoy Pumpkin Spice latte is next to fireplace with your favorite book in your hands or over a chat with your family or friends.
Fall has it’s own magic, just like a Spring, Summer or Winter. And I am glad, where I live, we have 4 seasons and we can taste this privilege of difference in weather every three months. So officially I am saying Good bye Summer, I love you and I will see you next year 🙂
