Well, it's official- Fall is finally here in Chicago. I realize that Fall began almost two months ago at this point, but up until now we have been blessed with 50's and 60's and sunshine. Now it's 40 degrees and I have to spend 10 extra minutes each morning chiseling my windshield free of frost. I love October-January mainly for the holidays, hot chocolate, winter boots & scarves, the first few snowflakes, and all of the shopping. Once February 1st rolls around I'm pretty much over it. So here's to enjoying these next few months and all of the Starbucks Peppermint Mocha's that come with them.
