Does Pumpkin Spice welcome fall?

Everything last year was saturated in Pumpkin Spice. Everything – from  coffee to room spray – even a color was called pumpkin spice.

It became a Pumpkin Spice Love or Hate fest.

This season, I am not doing a single thing in pumpkin spice, not one.

This years focus is on Fresh!

Fresh everything. Fresh ideas on making life fun again, creating memories that last with family and friends, fresh traditions.

OK, so yeah, pumpkin spice can be fresh especially if you make it in a sugar scrub.
