Joy in the Dairy Aisle

I love the little pumpkin pictured below.  
Finding joy in the big moments of life is easy.
Finding joy in the difficult times is hard, but good for us.
Finding joy in the daily grind is sometimes forgotten.

But not lately...
There was much JOY in the dairy aisle when my long lost friend reappeared for the season:
Welcome back, oh beautiful velvety, spicy thang.  You have been missed.  You make mornings so flavorful and soothing.  You are the best thing that has hit the dairy case since this guy was around for the holidays:
Mmm... talk about doing a dance in Walmart.  When I saw that the Gingerbread Man was back in town, I nearly wet my pants! What a delicious time of year.  
 Joy in the everyday is a lot more fun with one of these in your hand!
Excuse me while I go indulge in the flavors of the season.

Ah Pumpkin Spice is my FAVORITE creamer at this time of year. I love the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbuck's too.
I bought apple carmel creamer this weekend. Haven't tried it yet though.

As a fan of the pumkin latte I can appreciate your excitement! I keep meaning to pick up and try one of these little delicious flavors. I'm quite the fan of coffee so adding this stuff to it can be nothing short of uh-mazin'!
