The Blessings of Fall

Hello! What a wonderful time to post my first blog; Happy Thanksgiving, to all my fellow Canadians! Turkey and pumpkin lattes. Stuffing and pumpkin lattes. Mashed potatoes with gravy and pumpkin lattes. Sweet potatoes with brown sugar and marshmallows melted on top and pumpkin lattes. Pumpkin pie, or even better pumpkin cheesecake and pumpkin lattes.
