The Rise of the Pumpkin

It’s that time of year! Fall has come around and so have Pumpkin Spice Lattes! The joy of sipping the perfect hot coffee on a cold Monterey morning is even more enjoyable with the comforting taste of pumpkin. Not only does a Pumpkin Spice Latte taste amazing, but it also truly touches the soul. A little bit of happiness is in every cup. It sounds cheesy, but when you really think about it, everyone needs to have something to look forward to, and PSL is just that. Every morning, I drink a cup of coffee. I do not need the caffeine or the sugar, but I do need the boost of happiness. That cup of coffee is something that makes me realize that today is going to be a great day, and everyone needs that type of motivation. Waking up to go to school isn’t the easiest thing to do day after day. People tend to fall into routines and do not recognize each new day as it comes. Waking up to something you know is going to make your day better can make you look forward to the next day even more. Feeling good before your day has officially started puts you in a positive mood and gives you confidence to get your day going. That cup of coffee makes the bad days better and the good days the best days. If everyone had their version of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, then each day would be the slightest bit better.
