NaBloPoMo Day 6: All Pumpkin Err'thing

I can't even pretend like I care that my love of the Fall and all things pumpkin can earn me the label of "basic". My penchant for pumpkin: beer, pie, pancakes, muffins, bread, and candles isn't hurting anyone. Honestly, if loving these things is wrong, I don't want to be right.

I know Pumpkin Spice Latte season started prematurely  in August, but I forgive them
This is my time of year for sure; the sky is a sharp blue with bright white clouds, the leaves are glorious, and the air is crisp. I am the type who melts in the summer and wants to hibernate through the cold darkness of winter. Winter is especially tough for me and is typically marked by some serious holiday blues (the polite way to say depression). For me, the Fall is that last bit of comfort and sunshine before things get really hard; and pumpkin is my major association with my autumnal happiness.

My husband was horrified when he saw the price of my obsession at the farm we had purchased our pumpkins from...but it was worth it. Just for Halloween alone we had 7 pumpkins on our porch. I bought 6 more mini pumpkins for my employees. AND I picked up a gorgeous cheese wheel pumpkin for baking.

Here's the few that we decorated

I actually cooked that bad boy up last night which resulted in a pie, mini-pies (made in muffin pans), and pumpkin pancakes this morning. I have so much leftover puree that there is more baking to come. When the pie was in the oven, I enjoyed a pumpkin hard cider while watching Insidious 3 with the Mister and I was so. damn. happy. As result, my husband and child were happy. I like to think it was my glowing good mood, but let's be was the pie.

I look at this and all I see is pie.
So, to people who hate on Autumn and on pumpkin spice lattes I say, "Pffffft!". I don't go shitting on your Christmas spirit even though sometimes I'd rather die than celebrate it. To me, New Year's Eve is the worst forced night of revelry all year, but you won't hear me putting down your good time. We all have things that make us happy and if those things aren't hurting anyone, who cares what they are? A bad attitude won't get you any pie and, trust me, you want a slice of this happiness.
