I feel like August is autumn’s appetizer. It’s just a nibble of all the joys that the fall season has to offer. In August my Pinterest newsfeed starts to fill up with pumpkin recipes and stores are starting to get some pumpkin items shelved. It’s a welcome transition month.
I even saw a brown leaf fall to the ground and got ridiculously excited because it was a tangible sign that FALL IS COMING!
Last week, we got a small autumn package in the mail from Starbucks. It was a K-cup caffe latte sampler with pumpkin spice! There was a caramel one too but who cares and it was not good. I’m not a huge Starbucks pumpkin coffee lover but the Pumpkin Spice Latte is iconic in the cache of “Pumpkin Eatin’ Season” items.
A quick review is that it was totally drinkable but I would never purchase it and there were lots of grainy bits at the bottom of my mug that were unpleasant to drink.
Prepare yourself for the onslaught!
