You know this had to happen. Ever since Starbucks stopped selling pumpkin spice lattes (because fall can’t last forever) I have been craving them. They could brighten my day like nothing else, no matter what was going on. I don’t know what they put in it, but it could cheer me up in a flash.
I don’t know why I didn’t think about actually making one myself earlier! It was too easy, and costs waayy less. But I know, when fall rolls around… I will still be in those long lineups at Starbucks for something warm…
