Today marks the first day of the challenge, and as it is the first week of midterms for me, I decided to indulge in a slightly-caffeinated and warm treat for a cold, windy day: A chai-pumpkin-almond-milk latte with cinnamon. Simple, sweet, and cozy on a day where my mental strength is both at its most determined and most fragile – two days before two midterms, and this seemed like a simple way to warm up my body while also cooling down an overheated brain.
Yes, those are adorable little lady bugs crawling up the side of – no, you are not mistaken – a tea-cup cozy! Courtesy of my grandma.
They were justified in wanting to be a part of the magic that is the Pumpkin Challenge.
YOU, TOO, can be a part of the magic! Feel free to join me starting at any point, or take one day to indulge in a pumpkiny treat with me, or take on the month-long challenge for yourself!
