After 364 days of anticipation, All Hallows Eve has returned at long last and I'm bubbling like a witch's cauldron with joy and merriment over this fact. I'd hoped to get in a pre-Halloween shoot of my costume, but haven’t feeling well enough lately for that, so hopefully we'll get some snaps later today and I can share my festive ensemble with you all in the very near future.
Like much of North America right now, though we're on the west coast, not the east, and thus haven't felt Hurricane Sandy's terrible wrath firsthand, we've had fairly rough weather all week. The rain that's been present since last Friday continues this morning, as I curl up in a corner of the living room couch and silently ask the The Great Pumpkin to send a little sunshine our way.
No matter what the weather has up its sleeve today, and even though I'm feeling less than stellar on the health front, nothing can dampen my spirits - or the spirits that may very well be lurking amongst us on this spooky holiday - in the slightest!
Though we don't have tons of Halloween decorations (no room in our past homes to store much in the way of seasonal decor), we do have a beloved little handful (certain items of which, such as the candles pictured here, have been with me since childhood), and I took snaps recently of some of our collection - as well as most of the pumpkins we picked up at Bear's fruit stand - to share with all of you today.
However you celebrate today, I really hope that you have a frighteningly marvelous Halloween (and if you don't observe Halloween, I hope that you have a beautiful last day of October). I look forward to sharing my costume with you very soon, and can't wait to see blog posts about what you sported on this fabulously haunted eve as as well.
Happiest, sweet-as-candy, eerily awesome Halloween wishes, everyone!
