I have something I need to come clean about. No, I haven’t been hiding a dirty addiction to drugs or alcohol or food (okay, well food maybe.. and definitely Gummy Bears..) No, what I have become addicted to is far worse, and a much bigger gateway to terrible, terrible things..

I have an addiction to fall and everything fall-related. Don’t tell my husband, but I may even love fall. The cool crisp air, pumpkin everything, spiced drinks, scarves, boots, tights, not feeling as though I’m going to combust or melt while running… ALL OF IT.

That’s right folks, just days into September I was one of ‘those people’ venturing out to my local Starbucks in search of my first Pumpkin Spice Latte (or PSL as it’s known on the streets) fix. Just days after that first PSL, I visited Bed Bath and Beyond to purchase fall candles, dining room table decor and pumpkin pods for my Keurig. Eventually, I realized these things alone weren’t enough to feed my addiction. By the 15th, I had progressed to pumpkin muffins, pumpkin coffee creamer and most recently, pumpkin cookies.

I’m beginning to worry that Halloween is going to feel neglected, and Thanksgiving will develop an ego…

The first step in my recovery is acceptance and knowing that I’m not alone in my struggle.

Does anyone else struggle with a similar addiction?

  1. Me! Like you, I was getting PSLs at the beginning of September even though it was 90 degrees. I’ve pinned at least 50 pumpkin recipes on Pinterest, have like 5 different kinds of fall scented Yankee Candles, and have made pumpkin muffins twice already! I’m obsessed!

    1. Phew! I didn’t see any comments initially and thought I was just flat out nuts! haha. Yeah, I went around pinning fall outfits my last time wasting trip through Pinterest. Next will most certainly be fall recipes. 🙂
