So I'm starting to get into the 'fall spirit' (it takes me longer than most). Probably the hardest part of me accepting fall is because it means that cold is coming... I HATE being cold. When Dave and I were going to get married I told him that one of the things that he would have to make sure to do as my spouse was keep me warm... and I don't mean that in a 'wink, wink' kind of way (which I think he thought it was), no; I meant he really has to make a conscious effort to keep my body at a reasonable temperature.
I've found that one of my favorite things when it's nippy outside is warm drinks, in particular Starbucks' steamed milk with hazelnut.... ahhhh. Love the hazelnut. That's my little slice of heaven for one warm minute in time. I'm not a coffee or tea drinker but props to Starbucks on their steamed milk and, I might add, their amazing caramel apple cider. If you haven't had one of these before do yourself a favor and stop on by. A sip of that deliciousness means 'fall/winter' to me and makes it somewhat bearable. I've never made steamed milk myself before (other than just heating it on the stove) and I think you need an espresso machine, which I have no need for other than steamed milk so... I guess Starbucks will be my friend this winter.
On another note, since I'm getting excited for fall which culminates on the 31st, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
