American Girl

I find many moments I want to document my life with a snapshot.
This day was one of those.
Nothing eventful, out of the norm, or particularly spectacular happened.
It was just an average yet wonderful day.
I didn't dress up in any fancy manner, but I felt so at home
in the knit layers on a cold crisp day.
I saw a friend from out of town and we hit up the art gallery.
I was given a precious acorn pendant by an artist I admire.
I spend the late evening unwinding with wine and good company.
It was just a splendid day,
and I felt it should be preserved.~

Halloween 2014

I may complain about how the way they put Christmas stuff out before
Halloween, but I couldn't resist doing the leg lamp from
A Christmas Story as my costume this year.

It served me well and brought me to my second win in a row
for the Uptowner costume contest. 
The costume was completely homemade,
thanks to a ton of help from my neighbor Dave,
and even included a working light.

I hope to go for the third win next year.
Halloween is by far my favorite holiday,
and I hope you all had a spooktacular time this year~
