Hooray its Fall!

pumpkin-spice-latte

Fall is approaching and, though, it’s not much of a change in Miami, we still like to celebrate. Whether it is with constant trips to Starbucks for a pumpkin spice latte or making our houses look like Halloween threw up on them, us Miamians love to go all out. Which is probably nothing new to anyone.

Throughout the year, it feels like the degrees of ten thousand suns here so it’s always great for the little relief that fall (and eventually winter) release upon us.

This fall, we’d like to commemorate some of our favorite fall things:

  • Pumpkin gourds
  • Leather jackets
  • Cooler weather
  • The mosquitos disappear
  • Halloween
  • Candy Corn
  • Fall vegetables
  • Being able to eat warmer foods
