Pumpkin Spice + A Winner

You know, sometimes our actions portray what our hearts are longing for and we don't even realize it. Yesterday I came home from Trader Joes and as Micah helped me unload the groceries he said "Whoa, are you fooling yourself that's its fall?" 
I looked at what he was holding and saw that I had purchased Pumpkin Ice Cream, Pumpkin Spice Coffee, more Pumpkin Chai Tea Latte, pumpkin bread mix, pumpkin butter and mini pumpkins! I think it was an act of desperation. 
I had been sweating all day long. Like literally all day, sweating. It was hot. Too hot. 
Especially after returning from the conference in Indiana where it was cooler and the fall foliage radiated hues of reds, yellows and oranges. 
But for this Southern California girl, 91 degree heat and no change of leaf colors. The only way I know it's supposed to be fall is because of the decor at Disneyland, Pumpkin Spice Lattes back on Starbucks menu and Trader Joes having pumpkin goodness filling its isles. 
I know that's bit dramatic but seriously I shouldn't have to sweat while drinking my PSL and I really want to rock my boots and scarves already. The Influence Conference gave me a taste of that and now I just want the whole feast of Fall.
I obviously was wanting it more than I let on and I have a grocery bag full of it to prove it.

So while I was day dreaming about snuggling up to the fire with hot caramel apple cider and a good book I realized I hadn't selected a winner for the J&M Botanicals Giveaway.
I'm thrilled to announce the winner is Shannon!! Email me sweet thang so we can get your face looking so fresh and so clean clean!

Yummy! I just bought almost ALL of those things at TJ's on Saturday! Minus the coffee & ice cream.. but only because they were out. I'll be going back this weekend for sure. We've gotta bring fall to us if it's not showing up on it's own, right? Happy fall!

I've got the POWAH (powah, powah)! Thanks randomly generated name-picker, and thanks Nat!!

ps. You don't have a problem. If anything, I think you're missing a few key products. Halloween Joe Joe's are at the top of that list.
