Fall Weather, Long Weekend and a Latte - Life is Good


My first pumpkin spice latte of the season was savored on Saturday at the park - life is good!

This weekend's weather has been gorgeous - welcome back Fall! So glad you have returned!

On Saturday, Hubby and I had to divide-and-conquer with Home Depot visits and house projects, so I took the kids to the park for a little while. The weather was a dream! I actually wore a sweatshirt for part of the day. Right before we hit the playground, I stopped by Starbuck's for a quick pick-me-up and found that the Pumpkin Spice Latte has returned for the season (can I have an Amen?). So, with the little piece of goodness in hand, we hit the park. The sky was so blue, I couldn't get over the color. We all need those "I'm so happy to be here" moments every now and then, and this was definitely one of them.

The day kept getting better as my Kentucky Wildcats beat the Louisville Cardinals in the first football game of the season. Go CATS!


I'm going to soak in as much of the long weekend as I can. Dear friends, hope you are enjoying your long weekend and the last days of summer. Soak it in and I'll talk to you again after the holiday!

I tried my first Pumpkin Spice Latte ever a few days ago.. it was nice.. my friend said they are usually better .. so I'm looking forward to trying them a few different Starbuck's to see the difference.

Yeah.. for your team ...Little Dolce will be happy to wear his blue shirt for the next game!! :)

Unfortunately autumn like temps here in our little corner of the world .. are reminding us there is much to do ...to get ready for the cold winter ahead... Hugs..HHL

I am loving Pumpkin Latte season, I have already savored 2...a good way to welcome fall, as well as football season...UGA plays UK in October and we are looking forward to taking our whole family back to the old stomping grounds in Lexington! I need some "me time" at Joseph Beth....

Sounds like a lovely day. We had glorious weather in SC and football victories as well--not quite cool enough for a psl, but we're getting there!

I had to make my way back to this post to tell you that I've never tried the pumpkin spice latte before b/c I don't normally like pumpkin-flavored things. But I was feeling the Fallish mood and wondered why everybody loves it so I gave it a whirl (typing as I'm sipping) and I love it! You don't have to like pumpkiny things to like this. xo
