In an act of solidarity with Nancy, I am trying to coax the arrival of Fall, or as I like to call it, Autumn. Isn't Autumn a much more romantic name than Fall? I think that may be why Autumn is coyly holding back. She wants to be called by her real name.
I've also decided to start dressing and cooking as though Autumn were already here. Today I am wearing layers, in nice seasonal colors of muted blues and browns. I have a long sleeve blue bib-top blouse on and a 3/4 sleeve brown cropped sweater over it. It's very granola and very Autumn. It helps that my office is about 68 degrees.
And in a desperate act of supplication, I baked a Brown Sugar Pound Cake with Caramel Glaze. I brought it to the office today as an Autumnal offering.
I think I'll pick up a Pumpkin Spice Latte on my way home from work.
