Remember my first year in Mexico when I posted about missing fall? I don't think I've posted about it since, but the same thing happens every year. I miss the leaves changing color, the crispness to the air, that boots and scarves come out (and not for the rain and are actually seasonally appropriate), and I crave apple cider, candy corn, and everything pumpkin -- especially Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
There are a ton of Starbucks in Mexico City, but the seasonal drinks here are different and they've never had the Pumpkin Spice Latte since "it wouldn't appeal" to people here.
This morning I got an awesome promotional email from Starbucks, which basically translates to "you've been asking for it and it's finally arrived.... try the new Pumpkin Latte!"
I'm so excited.
I shared on Facebook and saw that I'm not the only one, either. A fellow American in the DF quickly commented that she also misses Fall back home, was equally as excited, and decided she'd get a Pumpkin Spice Latte to drink while watching "Hocus Pocus." Hah! Sounds like Fall to me :)
Yes, I realize I just dedicated a post to a Starbucks drink. But really, not only is it delicious, but it "is" a little bit of Fall. I'm so excited.
