Seriously, FOG . . . all day forecasted!
Have you ever woken up to a blah day? No, a really blah day? Of course, you have. Good, I am not alone here in my mood.
Well, today, quite literally, the fog is surrounding me . . . rather thickly. I am waking these past few mornings in darkness. The days are beginning to shorten and this darkness encircles me. It is hard considering I am that girl who LOVES summer. That girl who is always searching for sunbeams and warmth . . . that’s me.
Reality . . . no sunshine for me today . . . so what to do?
I am also a dreamer, a wisher, a not-giver-upper! It is going to be a Do It Yourself kind of day! I am going to head into my kitchen and make myself a cup of joe. Coffee always is the friend to give me the jolt I need. But not an ordinary cup of joe, oh no! Today I am making a cup of goodness to warm me up and make me feel all sunny inside. Thinking of all things Fall, why not make a cup of Fall deliciousness . . .
Pumpkin Spiced Latte
makes 1 delicious cup
1 tbsp pumpkin puree
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Heat all ingredients in a small pot on stove top.
*Add additional cream (I added 1 tsp), more sugar if you like(sweet enough for me), foamed milk on top (hey, go crazy and add whipped cream) and a sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice!
Oh, how I wish you had smelly vision . . . the scent is divine!
I am actually seeing some blue up in the sky. Could it be true that the fog is beginning to lighten? Or am I just feeling a bit happier sipping this cup of yumminess?
Well, all I know is this Pumpkin Spiced Latte is making me fall in love with Fall!
