Tis the season

Pumpkin... pumpkin... pumpkins everywhere!

I must confess something.
I've never been a big pumpkin-eater.

Oh, I like picking real pumpkins and carving them, and even eating the seeds.
But pumpkin bread... pumpkin pie... no thank you.

Until this year.
Something changed.

It started with my friend's amazing pumpkin cupcakes at Bible study one night...
followed by me making them...
then trying a pumpkin spice latte...
and then making pumpkin bread...
and ordering a pumpkin muffin (who AM i?)
and again, mini cupcakes.

I still don't think I can do the massive pumpkin-ness of pumpkin pie.
[although i may try it... a small piece.]

This season has definitely stretched me
to give pumpkin another chance.
Why would I write it off before I really know what it's like?

God has used this season to challenge me
to be bold, to try new things, and learn more about who He made me to be.
And part of that journey involves pumpkins.


  1. Yay for trying out new things!
    Have you ever tried Pumpkin Lattes???
    I have one every day...and I wasn't into pumpkins either:))
    Have a wonderful week!!!

  2. Yes I have! I totally forgot about that! I added it.. thanks for reminding me :) I only had one once and liked it for the first 3/4 cup :). So festive and fun to drink! That's fun that you have them regularly... I'll have to try them again! You have a great week too!

  3. (I just read your comment on my post for today....and ummmm...yes! Except let's trade you want me to house sit for you? I am longing for warm weather. You are welcome here anytime! I have lots of cold to share:))))
