It allows me to take a moment and linger a little longer over my first cup of Pumpkin Spice coffee of the season and say goodbye to the Summer's Bounty. I used the last of my Summer Blueberries in a Wonderful Sour Cream Coffee Cake this morning! hmmmm the weather hasn't shown it yet, but Fall is in the air! Yaaaaaaaaaaayyyy!!!
