Pumpkin Spice


it's not truly fall until Starbuck's re-releases their autumn favourite - THE Pumpkin Spice Latte. and guess. what. was on. the menu board this very morn. you guessed it - TPSL. so i've pretty much stopped drinking coffee, but there are a few mornings where i am inexplicably drawn to the drive thru that just happens to be en route to the office. when i do find myself in the DTL (drive thru lane) i am sure to buy just a 'short' and refuse any yummy pastries they might offer as the 'perfect compliment' to my tiny drink.

today is the perfect day for TPSL debut, as it is relatively cool outside(okay so that's a stretch...it's not hot, at least give me that), the sky threatens to rain and i swore i saw a yellow leaf in at least one neighbor's yard.

complimenting this nice introduction into fall morning, is an excitement for what is coming next for the lowrie family. i don't know what it is supposed to look like, and Lord knows the picture has changed considerably since this time last week, but i cling to knowing that no matter what, it will be good. the time has come for us to move out of our comfort zone yet again and make some faith based decisions. those kinds of decisions are more fun to talk about when it's been a year since you made one and you can look back and see the fruit of that decision. it's difficult to sort through logic, doubt, attractive offers, and what if's and come out on the other side knowing that you've heard from God and made the right decision.

one decision i feel confident in sharing with the 3 people who actually read my blog is that we've decided to put our house up for sale. my hope is to have it up and listed and in selling condition by the end of this month. i know, i know. the market is horrible for sellers, and we live in a construction zone thanks to 161 going up - but if God wants our house to sell, all of that won't really matter. we've never sold a house before, so this is going to be quite the wild ride. thankfully i don't have 10 years of memories tied up into the house so it won't be an emotional thing, just a business transaction.

anyhoo, if anyone knows of someone who is just dying to live in GP, we just might have the house for you!

ps. i know, there are more than 3 people who read my blog. thanks to all 5 of you. :)

I totally forgot to agree with you whole heartedly on the pumpkin spice latte. It's pretty much the best thing they do. The gingerbread latte is pretty good too. I strong encourage you to try the pumpkin scone, sooooo gooooood.
