In the words of LM Montgomery, “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
October might just be my favorite month of the year. I may try and make fall happen in the middle of August and the first “official” day of fall may happen in September but October is when it actually starts to feel like fall.
October 5th would have been my Mom’s 59th birthday. I don’t talk about her very much on here but she passed away the summer after I graduated from high school. She had colon cancer and was one of the youngest women in the state of Arkansas to have it at the time. One thing I will always remember about my Mom is how all out she went for the holidays. I think she is where I get my “go big or go home” attitude when it comes to holiday decorating, especially when it comes to fall home decor.
My Mom loved everything about fall. She loved when the trees changed color (as much as they could in south Arkansas), she loved when the weather got cool outside, she loved lighting a fire in the fireplace and having family game night or movie night in front of it but most of all she loved pumpkins. We had pumpkins all over our house and we would always carve them right before Halloween. She was also really big into Halloween but that’s a story for another time.
As much as my Mom loved fall and pumpkins she also loved coffee. Obsessed is probably the most accurate description of her love for the drink. I think that if she were here today she would be just as obsessed with pumpkin spice coffee as I am, maybe even more…if that’s possible! I could also see her rocking a bright red Keurig with all the fancy coffee flavors in a spinning rack on the kitchen counter (just like me!!) just to drive my Dad crazy because he hates making his coffee by the cup and always makes fun of my “fancy” coffee maker. What a weirdo. LOL!
So in honor of my Mom, today I’m going to make some time to go get a fancy Pumpkin Spice coffee from McDonald’s (it’s like fall in a cup y’all!!) and drink it on my back porch and think about her. Because I know she would love it just as much as I do!!
And if Pumpkin Spice isn’t your thing then you should check out the rest of the McCafe menu! They also have a Carmel Macchiato, Carmel Cappuccino, French Vanilla Cappuccino, Americano and so much more!! There is literally something for everyone!!
