Hi everyone! Hope you’re enjoying the cooler weather as much as I am.
Despite the SoCal seasons not having too much of a variance between one another, I’m a sucker for FALL. The colors, fashion, decor…I love it all! Especially, the hot spiced beverages.

My favorite for the season is a Chai Latte, and I’ve been seeing recipes all over Pinterest, so I’ve decided to put together three of my own.  Hope you enjoy!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the
    same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Cheers!
