I have seen a “pin” on Pinterest lately, that asks the question, “How do you when it is the first day of Fall?” and the reply to that is, “Honey, because they start selling Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks!”
Oh Starbucks, loved by many and probably just as hated by many too, I love you and your pumpkin spice lattes. The first pumpkin spice product I had was about 4 years ago, it was a frappuccino. I was out with my Mom and my Nana and we picked one up, everyone took a sip to try it and like a good drug, we were all hooked!
Every fall, I read, green-eyed with envy all these great women’s blogs and their images of their Starbuck’s pumpkin spice latte treats, only to know that in England it is something they don’t offer.
Well, my friends, Mr. Michie and I had to go to the mall tonight to run a few errands after work. We grabbed a bite to eat and as we started walking around to complete our little mission we passed by Starbucks and I looked into their window and saw a sign that not only brightened my day, but brightened my entire WEEK!
What did the sign say, you ask? It said: NOW INTRODUCING PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES! I heard a choir of Angels singing when I entered those doors. Strolling through the mall, latte in one hand, Mr. Michie’s hand in the other, a perfect Fall evening!
Now, if they only had Bath & Bodyworks here then I could have come home with a bag full of delicious smelling Fall candles too! But, this girl is more than content with her pumpkin spice latte, so no complaints here!
