Happy Halloween!



Happy Halloween!

As I sit here on this beautiful fall morning drinking my caramel coffee, I am reminiscing on past Halloweens I’ve had. There are two types of Halloweens really, Trick or Treating and Parties. Because there comes a time when you can no longer go trick or treating unfortunately because an 18 year old carrying a pumpkin basket just isn’t as cute anymore. And then you go through High School and College dressed as school girls, hippies, or grabbing a pair of animal ears and calling it a costume. Then almost as a cycle, you have kids and your back on the streets asking for candy.

What I love,  is that Halloween has always been fun. There is no stress (unless you’re like me and always make your costume last minute), there is candy and food shaped as disgusting things, there are no awkward family moments, it simply just is a good time. Even the month of October alone is all leading up to the end, the big shabang, before in a matter of minutes while you’re taking down the pumpkins there are carolers outside singing “White Christmas”.

The haunted houses, bonfires, cider, pumpkin carving, decorations, and of course little kiddos and dogs in costumes, because is there anything cuter!?

I hope you all have a fun-filled, candy-stuffed, spooky Halloween. Here is a peek at my costume, can you guess what I’m being!? 😉

  1. I procrastinate my costume too! Every year I tell myself I won’t wait until the last minute to put toghether a costume. Yet I’m usually running around town halloween morning trying to find stuff.

  2. I never thought about the full circle before…dressing up and trick-or-treating, then eventually returning to that once you have kids. Maybe that’s because I don’t have kids! 🙂 But that’s a great perspective!

    I love seeing all the kids dressed up, but I have to admit, I’ve never been much of one for dressing up myself! I’ve never been very creative with coming up with costume ideas, so I’m always hugely impressed by witty costumes :).

  3. Wow, that is so cool!! I never thought about the circle of trick or treating. My kids are finally at the age where they are asking me why I’m not dressing up. Debating on being a baby so I can wear a comfy onsie. Next year I will have to dress up! Have a great night. Can’t wait to see what your costume is. Maybe Glenda the Good witch?
