...but I know I'll be home on Monday. I'm heading to NYC to visit my friend Sandra. I'm flying out with our friend, Malia, on Friday for a quick but fun visit. It will be nice to be together. I've already dug out old pictures (cuz I'm a picture freak). I just want to go and visit. I think Lisa and I did everything there was to do out there 3 years ago. This time it's to catch up and make sure Sandra is okay. She's gonna beat this cancer thing. I know it. See you when I get back (and you all can get up off the floor amazed that I posted twice in one month). :)

Ahhh, I love fall. And not just because of the cool weather, changing leaves, nor the tons of decorations I have amassed over the years. No, I love fall for one reason and one reason only. pumpkin. spice. latte. Yep. We were introduced last year by a mutual friend, Rene. She's the one that told me just last week that they were already in the air. So yesterday Steve and I were heading to Safeway to grab some last minute dinner items (which is typically the story of our family and dinner making) when lo and behold the biggest smile came across my face because I knew right then and there that I would be drinking heaven. We walked into Safeway and I walked right over to the little Starbucks store and with pride ordered my first grande PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE (with whipped cream) for the season. $4.09 later I was walking the aisles oblivious to the chips and cookies calling my name. And all because I love fall and pumpkin spice.
