I found this nice surprise on my kitchen counter when I came home one day this week. It is a Pumpkin Latte made by my daughter Serena, who works as a barista at a coffee shop in town.
I was struck by how sweet the "mama" written on the side was. It got me a little choked up because she turns 19 on Friday.
When I was pregnant with Serena, I craved anything pumpkin, and she has been crazy about anything pumpkin since she was born. So, her family nickname is Pumpkin. She is truly a delight and makes my day in so many ways.
Happy 19th Birthday, Pumpkin! (And thanks for the latte!)
