Have you noticed as soon as the first fall leaves drop from the tree the world goes pumpkin crazy?!? You can get pumpkin lattes, pumpkin beer, even pumpkin milkshakes (yes, i saw this advertised first hand on my way home today). Don't get me wrong I have nothing against pumpkins (in fact pumpkin beer is something i recommend you try), I was just racking my brain today trying to think if there is another time of year that inspires such an obsession with flavor. I mean we don't go bonkers for egg flavored delicacies at Easter do we? Just a thought....
Check out my new hand-painted tray that finally came in to Primrose today!! I ordered this at market in July and I'm so excited I finally got it. It's a piece by Ann Marie Murray who does beautiful hand-painted trays, etc. Many of the painters on her team were former artists employed by Heron. In case you can't see, the letter sticking out of the envelope has my monogram on it :)
Vice Presidential debate tomorrow--get excited!! I can't wait to see what unfolds and I do hope Jim Lehrer is not the moderator because I wasn't a fan during the first presidential debate. And although everyone is worried about the economy, I do hope they give adequate airtime to those issues that will still be around, long after the stock market has recovered.
Happy Hump Day!
