Pumpkin Spice Lattes Are Back and I am in Heaven!
Today is one of my favourite days of the year. It’s September 1st and that means Pumpkin Spice lattes are back!
Just in case I wasn’t enough of a #basicwhitegirl, in all my wine-drinking, book-reading, paper-crafting shenanigans, I couldn’t contain myself from posting about the glorious return of this beverage. I even made sure I wore the right uniform – leggings, layers, messy bun, and more makeup than I would generally wear in a week.
My love for the Pumpkin Spice
I love the fall. It is, by far, the best season in my books. I get to have all of my very favourite things during the fall: cozy sweaters, rainy days reading, mugs of warm tea and hot cocoa, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and the big beautiful lead-up to Christmas. How could you not be in love with fall? It also brings all the best, savoury comfort foods.
The first step in this glorious journey is the return of the Pumpkin Spice latte. It is an autumnal harvest in your mouth – you’d be crazy not to enjoy it. I tend to get it half sweet that way I get all the beautiful flavour without the intense sweetness. But I will drink that ish any way I can get it.
How we celebrated
Yes. Celebrated! In our household we celebrate this magnificent day.
My amazing hubby Glen did all the planning and organizing. He made a big pumpkin-themed breakfast for me, Evelyn, and his sister Kaitlyn. First up was, of course, our first Pumpkin Spice lattes of the season.
Then Glen made us a huge stack of pumpkin pancakes, with real maple syrup to keep with the theme of the day.
The breakfast was sooooo good! We devoured those pancakes. Even Evelyn was super excited about them!
It was a glorious breakfast and the perfect way to welcome back Pumpkin Spice. I look forward to drinking many more in the season to come!
