I Broke My Golden Rule

I don't buy or make anything pumpkin until summer is officially over. That's my golden rule. However, Friday is Coco's 4 year Gotcha Day Anniversary and he wants his favorite. Pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. So, this happened yesterday. Lisa purchased a can of pureed pumpkin. I'm having mixed feelings about this.

On one end of the stick, I don't like to rush the seasons. I did that for many years while working in the field of online marketing retail. I was always living 2 or 3 months ahead of schedule. From a retail perspective, I can understand that after the 4th of July, it's time to put the back to school and fall stuff out . In their eyes, summer is done and over with. From my standpoint, it sucked, but that's what I got paid to do. I had to comply.

I'm not in that line of work any longer. We still have over a month of the summer season left. I refuse to buy pumpkins, mums, or officially bid farewell to the summer season until the first day of fall. Which, this year, lands on September 22nd. That's five weeks away.

I still want to enjoy swimming, late night ice cream runs, gardening, etc. 

From September 22nd on, I'll embrace the fall season with every ounce of my being. Until than, nope.

On the other end of the stick, it's Coco's 4 year Gotcha Day Anniversary. He wants homemade pumpkin cupcakes.

And, that's exactly what he'll get.
