Thoughts on a Wednesday

Wednesday Words

Thank you all so very much for the nice comments on yesterday's post! Sad to say, but my skin is not nearly as nice in real life as it appears in the photos -- but hey, love the skin you're in, right? Once the article I'm writing is live, I'll be sure to link over to it.

Have you ever found yourself in a creative slump? That, my friends, is where I find myself right now. I do have a strong feeling that the change of seasons will revitalize my creativity, though. For now, the little image above will serve as a pep talk. As my job is driven by creative juices, I must press on.

On a (long-winded) side note, I was over the moon excited when I woke up yesterday and realized that it was the day Starbucks was bringing the coveted Pumpkin Spice Latte to the city of Chicago, one week before all other cities. Yes! I quickly walked, with pep in my step, to the closest Starbucks. Upon arriving at said Starbucks, I was immediately halted by the giant green sign that read, "License Suspended". WHAT. So as not to waste time, I turned around and speed walked to the mini Starbucks inside the grocery store nearby. The ladies behind the counter knew NOTHING of the early Pumpkin Spice Latte release. Settling on a Skinny Vanilla Latte, I immediately walked home and started tweeting to Starbucks. What on earth? The Mr. came home from work yesterday, asking if I remembered it was Pumpkin Spice Day (duh!), because he'd seen people going nuts for them in the Starbucks by his office downtown. I sulked the rest of the night. So, for those of you in Chicago -- which Starbucks' shops actually have the PSL? Please let me know before I spend my time making {this} again! Much appreciated!

Pumpkin spice? That sounds so delicious. I'm not sure it's fair that it comes out in one city before the other one, but thats okay. hehe
You have such an adorable blog. And I love the way you write and express yourself.

PSL! Oh I'm jealous Jennifer...something about that special red cup filled with pumpkin goodness sure does make the season extra festive!

I love this quote! It is exactly what I need right now. I need to live life to get more inspired again! It's so important to remember that!

Jen, I had a Punkin spice latte today and now I get it. I've been a cinnamon dolce lover for years, and usually I find pumpkin things a little much. Nope! H-E-A-V-E-n! So of course I called Meghann to rub it in :)
