So I want to thank you all for your input on my last post. I encourage everyone's opinion and having open discussions in my comments; I love input. I figured I'd take a night off from politics since I've worked about 10 hours today, and it was entirely political. So without further adieu..
The Transition of Summer to Autumn
As we have all noticed it's not summer anymore. We no longer have the hot days capped off with warm, mostly clear nights. Baseball is in its final games, and football is in full force. The trees have just about lost their leaves, and this time of year starts to bring out some new seasonal items. This leads me to be curious. What are some of your favorite fall-time classics? It just so happens I have some of my own.
Pumpkin Spice Latte
I love coffee, and I love espresso, which means I probably like lattes. I do, in fact, like lattes. I'm glad we made progress with those last two sentences, but I'm leaving them in - unedited. Back to my point, anything with pumpkin spice in it has to be good. I don't make many trips to Starbucks, but I have to go at least once in the fall for this tasty classic.
In case you guys didn't know it, I love being around you. Our family is so unique and insightful - not to mention nothing short of hilarious. I like to think that when we were all together at my Open House that it was one of the most fun times we've ever had as a family, since I rarely see all/any of you. Thanksgiving is a perfect time to at least see a few of my family members, so that definitely makes the list. Also, you can't pass up Grandma's cooking (or yours, Dad), or Aunt Carla's green bean casserole, or Aunt Carrie's cookies (or her rendition of Great Grandma's lard pie crusts) - can't forget those suckers.
