There’s a reason that Pumpkin Spice is such a big deal this time of year. It’s not solely an additive to your morning coffee, a hashtag-worthy anagram, or an accessory in photos. Pumpkin Spice is the autumn motif. It surrounds you and comforts you in more ways than you may even notice. The scent in your parent’s house on Thanksgiving that you subconsciously associate with family, tradition, and warmth. It’s the color of the deciduous trees and their incandescent glow in the mid-morning air. It’s familiar, calming, and inconspicuously spirited. While we often take these little things for granted, being reminded of their existence is what makes pumpkin spice more than just a flavor, but in the grand scheme of things, the blissfully modest experience of fall.
To Pumpkin Spice and all things Autumn… Cheers Strangers
