This morning I had to turn the heat on in the car. This afternoon it will still be in the mid 70s, this is California after all, but that one twist of the car’s air dial really brought it home.
Fall is on its way.
I know, technically it started on Sunday, or the week before when Starbucks brought out their Pumpkin Spice Latte, but for me, still sporting flipflops, capris, and tank-tops as the temperatures played around in the high 80s, it hasn’t felt very Fall-ish.
Until this morning. When I lamented the lack of sweater in my car and shivered myself through school drop off. You know, until I remembered that the temperature dial on the car has other settings besides “please make this car as cold as possible.”
So there I was, driving home, enjoying the blast of warm air gushing out of the car vents when I started thinking about all the things I love about Fall.
Pumpkin Spice Lattes are high on the list.
Want some coffee?
Starbucks and I would love to invite you to share what you love about the Fall — fuzzy socks? warm woolly sweaters? — in the comments section. A week from today, Thursday, October 3rd, I’ll randomly pick a commenter to win an awesome Starbucks “Welcome Fall!” Keurig coffee package.
And the winner is #55 Jules McNubbin a fellow honey crisp lover! Congrats Jules!
Come on, you know a warm cup of coffee is the best way to beat the cold on a nippy Fall morning!
Please note: I was not compensated to write this post, though I did receive a pack of coffee of my own. Feel free to come over and share a cup with me!
