This week has definitely, unequivocally felt like FALL IS HERE!
The PNW has had serious downpours for days but with those last fleeting bits of summer still trying to hang on by making things feel muggy all around you.
This weekend signals the last bits of the 2013 summer with Labor Day events in America as a kind of bridge into the changing of seasons. I have to say that I’m a little bit sad that this summer is already over because what an AMAZING SUMMER it’s been for me with Starbucks!
But I have so many more exciting things to be shared with everyone that this summer has led up to, that I’m just bursting at the seems to move into fall and keep the super-awesome momentum flowing into one of my favorite seasons!
And apparently Starbucks is on this wavelength of both celebrating the last days of summer with their hosting of the VIP Gold Card area at the internationally known Seattle music festival Bumbershoot this weekend! (Which of course I will be attending)
And at the same time Starbucks is helping the fall season get their party started by PRE-launching one of my most favorite drinks ever… The Pumpkin Spice Latte! Have you seen the new special-limited-edition Starbucks Swarovski mug to celebrate??? This is super-SWEET!
Early holiday present for me?!!
This year marks the 10 year birthday of this beautifully-fall-flavored drink and to celebrate they released it early (in select stores so call ahead) before the entire roll-out right after Labor Day. The hashtags for this seasons so-utterly-fall beverage of choice are #PSL10 and #ItsFallWhen both of which I’ve been following and retweeting heavily because again… Starbucks and I are on the same wavelength about bridging summer and fall and finding ways to celebrated BOTH right now. (like that MUG, and yes… I’m mentioning it AGAIN!)
So go celebrate your Labor Day weekend Americans (and International end-of-summer holidays too!) and then go get yourself ready for fall with the birthday celebration of PSL…
All I have to say is that this summer has been simply amazing! That my fall is quickly becoming even MORE amazing and that I feel #ItsFallWhen there are CELEBRATIONS to be had by all, and Starbucks is there every step of the way!
GoodBye Summer of 2013 and Happy Labor Day Weekend Everyone!!!!
