Nothing says fall like the color orange AND a Pumpkin Spice Latte.  As soon as I see that sign go up in Starbucks, even if its an 80 degree day and I’m wearing shorts, I jump up and down in my flip flops and declare that fall has officially started.

According to the calendar, fall did start this week.  The weather channel has a 40 something degree morning on the horizon and I am scrounging around trying to find a sweater or an old fleece before I have to go into the attic and do the dreaded season switch.  Does anyone else still pack away their fall/winter clothes to make room for their spring/summer stuff or am I the only one still torturing myself?

I am a fall baby, so I love this time of year.  The cool weather, pumpkins, leaves, Halloween and ORANGE is everywhere you look.  We have the added bonus of college applications this fall in our household, so I am taking a deep breath before I start drinking about 20 Pumpkin Spice Lattes a day to pause for L’orange.

Just found this!  It’s like having pumpkin pie for breakfast, with the added bonus of 12 grams of protein.  SO GOOD.

Enjoy the beginning of fall, my favorite time of year!
