It’s officially September, and while everyone is knee deep in Pumpkin Spice Lattes, I’m just over here trying to will summer to stay. It’s not that I don’t like fall, but I’m definitely a summer girl all the way. To me, nothing is better than the warm sun on your skin or going out for ice cream on a hot night. I’m starting to come to terms that summer is ending, though. I mean, ya kinda have to, right? But rather than diving right into all things pumpkin I need to ease into it, and that’s exactly why I whipped up a batch of this cinnamon peach baked oatmeal! I’m inviting in some festive flavors, like cinnamon, while still hanging on to the last of those fresh, juice summer peaches.
