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!
