Everything PUMPKIN!

While Florida's endless summers have their perks, I sometimes wish that we lived in a place with definite seasons. Winter here is nonexistent and Spring and Fall last maybe two weeks. Maybe. My closest encounters with those gorgeous red, orange and yellow Fall leaves occur only in the aisles of the craft store. Sigh. I have to fight the urge to break out all of those adorable Autumn decorations in September because... there's just something funny about pumpkins and bathing suits! I'll wait, as I do every year, until October 1st to finally get my hands on a Pumpkin Spice Latte because THAT is this Floridian's first day of Fall, y'all.

6 things you look forward to this Fall.

1. Pumpkin Spice Latte

2. Pumpkin patch
