I Love Halloween

I love Halloween.  I love black & orange, I love spooky stories & scary movies, I love jack-o-lanterns, witches & ghosts. I love Halloween.  I especially love dressing up.  I have always enjoyed the idea of creating a character and being something or someone else for a night.

The first costume I remember asking for was a nun.

I was in first grade and my teacher, Sister Michelle was my hero.  She was kind, patient, beautiful and an amazing guitar player and singer. I wanted to be just like her!  So, my Aunt Jeri made me a black habit with lovely trim and I was a nun for a day.

I loved it. 

Since then, I’ve been hooked!
