Here’s the deal. If I were forced to choose between telling you about engaging new books, cupcakes with perfectly swirled dollops of icing, or immaculate bouquets of bright flowers, then my brain would implode from the internal struggle.

Okay, technically it doesn't officially start until September 22nd, but if you take another sip of your pumpkin-caramel-ginger-fall-explosion latte you'll feel more at ease about kicking off your harvest season celebration a little early this year.
