Nine months out of the year I can drive past a Starbucks without batting an eye, stepping on the breaks, or flipping on my turn signal. But…when the seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte hits the menu, my SUV seems to run on auto-pilot and I find myself in the Starbucks drive through embarrassingly often!

Grande Pumpkin Spice Latte made with almond milk and no whip, please.

What’s your favorite pumpkin spice flavored indulgence?

I love sunshine and have no idea what a day without coffee would be like. I’m married to my high school prom date. I met my husband Seth in our hometown Juneau, Alaska where we had our wedding 14 years ago. Seth has my name tattooed on his bicep and we go back to AK every summer. I’m a #boymom to three wild, funny, charming, energetic little men. I like to think of parenting as a great’s too soon to tell if it worked or not! While we wait for the results, I know I’m right where I’m supposed to be.
