Let's Be Real Here — Apple Cider Is A WAY Better Fall Flavor Than Pumpkin Spice, And You Know It

Let’s be real here.

Nothing can beat the freshness of apple cider.

Getting the sweet yet refreshing drink from a local apple orchard or any other local shop is the absolute best. Nothing can beat homemade apple cider. Even if you buy it at the store, it's still better than pumpkin spice.

You can't say the same thing about pumpkin spice. Pumpkin spice doesn't have that fresh taste. It's sweeter and very sugary. There are so many weird variations to go with it too. I mean cereal, candy, and so many others.

At this point, there's just too much pumpkin spice stuff, and honestly, so many of them are ridiculous.

Don't get me wrong, I like a nice pumpkin spice latte or coffee creamer sometimes, but not nearly as much as the ones who live and breathe pumpkin spice around this time of year.

Heavenly processed pumpkin spice has nothing on apple cider.

Opt out for some fresh apple cider and support local. A warm, homemade apple cider and donut are definitely the way to go at an orchard. Have it plain, or with cinnamon, both are a great choice.

Learn to make the donuts or beverage yourself. Go apple picking, and pick some up along the way. Go to a farm with festivities, like pumpkin picking, and see if any are being sold! You can make memories with it, you can't really say the same about pumpkin spice.

Another option, of course, is going to a store and picking up some apple cider and donuts, those are good, too!

Now, this one is absolutely great, apple cider slushies. Yes, you read that right. One of the absolute best slushies I've ever had, homemade and local of course, but I'm sure you can find it elsewhere too.

Once you try an apple cider slushie you won't be able to get enough.

I doubt pumpkin spice slushies exist, and if they do, that definitely doesn't sound very appetizing.

Also, if you drink alcohol, have some hard cider or add apple cider to something and create a nice alcoholic beverage for yourself. You can have it hot, which adds that nice cozy feel that really makes you want to snuggle up in a warm blanket and watch Halloween movies.

There are so many more things you can do with apple cider rather than go to a fast-food coffee place, which definitely makes apple cider the better choice.

One of the darkest moments in my family's life.

Huffington Post

I knew this day was coming when my mother’s decided to get spinal surgery. February 20, was the date her surgery was set. It was a normal day in school when I received the message of a lifetime. My oldest sibling telling me our mother’s surgery went wrong. Imagining what could possibly go wrong made my eyes water. Felt like I was the only person on my bus. Everything was silence and my mind was racing. There was never a positive thought in my head. Taking the last step off the bus and the first step onto the porch, everything was real.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.
