Lovin' Some Latte

Pumpkin Spice Latte
On my way to Atlanta this afternoon I stopped to get my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season. My friend, Brenda, from Coffee Tea Books and Me turned me on to these yummy drinks. Brenda's blog was the first one I ever read back in 2007 and it will always have a special place in my heart. Her blog is educational and she gives lots of tips about being frugal in this challenging economic time. She is a Christian that is not shy about sharing her faith. She has a love for books and shares about her experiences in homeschooling. If you've never visited her I think you will be in for a wonderful treat. There is such a warmth about her writing and her openness to share about her health challenges. Although she is about a hundred times more domestic than moi, I do feel like we are kindred spirits. She cooks fabulous looking food and stocks up her pantry for 'rainy days'. I have learned from her and from the comments she receives she has helped many others as well. Her blog is truly a gem.

I think I remember my blog friend Dee Dee talking about this yummy Starbucks drink. And it's seasonal, right?...so you have to wait until autumn arrives! It sounds absolutely yummy.

Brenda's blog sounds wonderful! I'm going to go check it out!....

Hey Trish...too bad we don't live closer...we could met for some pumpkin spice lattes!! :) Silly me, I order mine with soy milk, but still have them top it with whipping cream. That really doesn't make sense does it?!!

I tend to stay away from the sweet drinks...but maybe I should give this one a try. Sounds good...smells goods...and I can almost taste it!

I know Fall is here when Starbucks serves their special fall drinks. The weather doesn't say Fall but Starbucks sure does.


Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

hugs,
Barb
