Happy Fall! It officially became Fall this past Saturday, although didn’t really feel too much like it, but the mornings and evenings do! However, don’t get too excited – today is not what you think it is. My pumpkin recipes are coming in October. This is just a prep to get you READY for my pumpkin recipes :)

Isn’t my thought process just brilliant and so perfectly thought out?

Okay, so I don’t give into the whole pumpkin everything after Labor Day. I still believe that pumpkin recipes should happen in October. Yes, I’ve made pumpkin goodies already but no, I have not posted any. I’m sticking to that rule! Just like I won’t be posting any Thanksgiving goodies until November and Christmas goodies til December! I don’t like rushing holidays or seasons because life already goes too fast so why rush it all away?

Anyway, so to help prep you for some amazing pumpkin recipes I have lined up for you in October, with the first one exactly a week from today (which is October 1st!), I’m showing you how to make your own pumpkin spice!

Pretty much every pumpkin recipe I have in October uses this and it’s SO much cheaper making this yourself than buying a tiny little jar of it. It’s so easy and lasts for many many recipes!

Happy pumpkin spicing!

I'm always happy to save money, so this spice blend is great. And Yes! Thank you for not rushing the seasons. I walked into a Walgreen's a week and a half ago and they already had their Halloween candy displayed! "Back to School season" wasn't even over yet.

I don't like that all holidays and seasons are so pushed now. Life is already so short - why not savor it all and take it all in?? :) there's no rush for these things!
