Hello Fall.... Hello Fall GIVEAWAY....

I have just walked through the door after having my first PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE of the season at Starbucks.

It is a ritual that I look forward to each year -- You can see HERE and HERE how passionate I am about the start of the cooler-weather-season!

"My" season is beginning and though it feels absolutely NOTHING like Fall here right now, I do not care.... I sat in Starbucks (always chilly in there anyway) and sipped one of the best

Pumpkin Spice Lattes ever.

I had them make it breve' (with half-n-half) and it was PURE HEAVEN!

To help YOU along the way to Pumpkin Spice heaven, and because that latte has put me in such a great mood,


at my hubby's suggestion....

I am going to give away


$5.00 Starbucks gift cards!

FOUR of you will have your own start to Fall ... ON ME!

You can go buy yourself your own Pumpkin Spice Latte to kick off the season,


whatever drink you makes you feel all warm & fuzzy inside.

I love Fall....

(and you guys)!

So, leave me a comment on this post,

and on Friday morning I will draw FOUR NAMES as winners!

Can you think of a better way to start your weekend???

Did I mention I love Fall?

And you....

How sweet of you to think of us!

I am sure I will try a few of the new things when I get to the original Starbucks Thursday morning! He He! I will be thinking of you the whole time.

BTW, have you been there?

Thanks for the giveaway!

I can't pass up on this opportunity. I guess this is a sign that summer is really on the way out, but if pumpkin spice latte is the trade-off, then I'm ready for fall. Thanks for the chance.


Laura said...

Hi Ruth!
Happy Autumn to all! I just love sweater weather! If you draw my name you can have a pumpkin latte on me or pass it along since I already won a previous and wonderful give away of yours! I just wanted to say hey and thanks for being such a kind and generous soul!
Take care, Laura
