Is anyone else ready for everything pumpkin? I sure am! Including pumpkin pockets.
What better way to keep your fingers warm while waiting for your Pumpkin Spice Latte?! YUM! We wait all year for it to come… and it’s worth the wait. I don’t think I want to know how many I consume in the fall months.
This super scarf is seriously super and can be worn in a few different ways. It certainly is warm & cozy!
