Happy Halloween!!

I have a ton of wedding stuff to fill in, but I can't let Halloween go by with no post!! Halloween is my most favorite favorite holiday :) I think it stems from my mother and her love of the fall. I love everything about Halloween...the crisp, cool air...PUMPKINS...the spookiness in the air...the festive feeling that surrounds it...the celebration of the harvest time. 

Every year since I've moved to Long Beach, I've hosted a pumpkin carving party. As my friendships have grown, so has my party. It's one of my favorite things and the perfect way to celebrate my favorite holiday. I make a big pot of chili and guests bring a dish of their own and a pumpkin, of course!!

I don't know why we started this :P





Other Halloween essentials include:
Hot Apple Cider
"The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown"
"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"
"Practical Magic"
Walking around to see all the costumes
Festive socks and shirts

I'm so grateful to all the people that make my life SO fun and help me to celebrate my favorite holiday!!
