Good Morning and Happy Thursday!

Don’t get me wrong, I love summer:  cookouts, grilling, fun summer drinks, corn on the cob, watermelon, etc etc…but I can’t wait for fall 🙂

I know its only the beginning of September but the other day when I was surfing Pinterest I found tons of Fall recipes for pumpkin pancakes, fall decorations, and cozy sweaters.  Plus, you never just about every blogger out there is already talking about all the fall pumpkin recipes that are going to be smacking us right in the face, get ready for it!
