Today Elle and I could feel fall in the air! It was chilly but the sun came out and the air was crisp and fresh.
The first A&P we went to really set the tone. As soon as you walk into the store the aroma of what I took to be apple cider hits you (it could have been that I was drunk with fall festiveness). You are greeted with a dead-looking man decoration who tells you to “come here, I have something to show you…” while he proceeds to remove his head from his body. I am smiling while I frolic around the pumpkins for sale and Charlie Brown pumpkin patch balloons. Working in grocery stores everyday, it’s hard not to see and begin wanting all the new most enticing seasonal décor. This is when I decide that my Dad’s apartment is lacking in spirit. I bought a very modern looking pumpkin, it has black and copper twirlies jumping off from the stem. I also chose some pumpkin/squash salt and pepper shakers and a pumpkin scented candle. Why not, right?
If you’re as excited as me about fall as I am check out the Pumpkin Spice gelato! It has already had a request or two via Penelope..
