Pumpkin Spice Donuts To Go With Your Pumpkin Spice Latte
I dropped my kids off at school and made my traditional #basicmom stop at Starbucks to celebrate. Yes, I am totally that girl and I’m ok with it.
I was delighted to find that not only were there other moms celebrating back to school with me (holla!), but we were all able to do so with a little PSL.
That’s right: it’s officially Pumpkin Spice Latte season. And I am in love with all things pumpkin, my friends!
Sure, it may be a balmy 93 degrees out today but the lovely thing about Northern Virginia is that we’ve been kissed by fall a few times already.
It may not be here — yet— but it’s coming.
And I am all kinds of here for it.
