Have you opened that door yet? You know, the one that sends you spiraling down that slippery slope of pumpkin flavored everything and fall decor.
I recognize all the signs but I am stubbornly refusing to bite. Yes, it's chilly when I get up in the morning, yes, I may soon need a sweater to leave the house, yes, the leaves are turning the most beautiful colors and yes, I saw pumpkins for sale. I'm holding tightly to the remains of summer. Beaches, lighter hair, suntans and the ocean. I was just there!!! Less than two weeks ago.
I know I'll have to accept the inevitable and boldly traipse into fall with my plaid and riding boots (are they still in fashion? I must find out). It will all start with that coffee shop trip for the official ordering of the season's first Pumpkin Spice Latte. (And if you're a cool kid, it's a PSL because we are far to busy to say the entire name.)
