About This Newsletter

A banner for the Romance/Love newsletter.

September is here and autumn starts this month on Monday, 23 SEP. 1st up is Labor Day. The holiday has roots in New York City back 1882. In the 1880’s industrialization was booming, but workers were overworked. A lot of them unionized to get better working conditions. It’s why we have 40 hour work weeks, adequate safety rules, and child labor laws. Unofficially, Labor Day is known as the last day of summer. It’s one last BBQ before the kids go back to school.

Today is a day to remember and honor the heroes of the 9-11 attacks. Every city has different ceremonies to honor the heroism displayed that day. I would like to ask all to just pause and say a prayer, especially for those who suffer from illnesses now due to their heroic acts on 9-11.

As autumn approaches, I’d like to ask: what is it known for? The days start getting cooler and become shorter. Halloween is a month away and then we have Thanksgiving in November. It’s harvest time. Time to bake pies, Time for… pumpkin!

There, I said it. I thought I’d take a different approach to this month’s newsletter and talk about the appeal of a favorite seasonal autumn drink – the Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Letter from the editor

Pumpkin and autumn go hand-in-hand like peas and carrots. Starbuck’s famous Pumpkin Spice Latte hit the stores 27 August this year. Originally introduced in 2003 by Starbucks, the company wanted to develop espresso seasonal drinks. The creator of this irresistible drink was Peter Dukes. At first, it didn’t have any pumpkin in it (which was ironic) but now it has a healthy dose of pumpkin.

The drink took off! It now earns over 100 million dollars a year for the company. Starbucks isn’t the only coffee/breakfast company/restaurant, but they are the first one to make the product highly successful. A 16 oz. cup of PSL offer 380 calories, 50 grams of sugar, and 18 grams of fat. That’s a bomb!

Pumpkin Spice Latte is not the most healthy of drinks, so why buy it again and again? The brain enjoys it. Trust me, all that sugar and fat? It’s an enjoyable drink. (not necessarily healthy.) PSL is the ultimate fun, autumn offering. It’s part of how we prepare ourselves for the fall. It helps to get us in the mood for the season.

Question: Why do you drink Pumpkin Spice Latte? (or why not?) Does it help you get in the mood for the season?

When I learned about the Love languages it revealed a lot! I also tested my kids because it works for all kinds of relationships: romantic and familial :)
