I've been sad about summer leaving since summer came. I LOVE SUMMER. I love it. I love the heat, the sun, the warm evenings, the clothes, the shoes, the wonderful fresh food, the cool mornings, the pretty flowers...
But now that fall is about here, I'm starting to remember why I enjoy fall, too. The mornings, while a little cooler that I normally like, are perfect for little cardigans and long-sleeved shirts and long jeans. Plus, pumpkin spice lattes are back and I LOVE THEM!
Starbucks knows it, too. That's why they only keep it for oh, a month or so and then take it away from us. I've already had two and I have to say... I'll be back for more soon. (Also, I should note that I tried a nonfat PSL in the hope of saving a few calories... it wasn't as good. The next time, I went with the whole milk and it was a million times better. It's worth the splurge.)
Plus, we get beautiful mornings like these:
No filter or photoshop or anything... those clouds were BEAUTIFUL. This was taken at like, 7:15 in the morning. So pretty.
I also made some BOMB pumpkin muffins. The easiest thing I've ever made. You literally just need a can of pumpkin and a box of cake mix (I used yellow cake mix, but I read that a spice cake mix would be even better and I think that would help... mine were missing a little something in the spice area). Mix them together and pour into a muffin tin. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
Done. Delicious, 140 calorie muffins just in time for fall! :o)
Fall is probably my second favorite season. I like spring because it starts getting warm, but I HATE that intense spring wind. I don't like winter (other than the holidays) because of the COLD. I LOVE summer and I'm remember how much I really like fall.
So bring it, autumn, I'm ready for you!
