halloween memories

October 30, 2006

i love halloween. i love being able to dress up (or not dress up!) and hand out candy to the costumed children. over the last couple of days i’ve been thinking about past halloweens. one of my favorite memories is as a child. we had a weekend house in virginia, and one year all of the residents decided to do a progressive halloween party. my mom made crayon costumes for me and my two neighborhood best friends, sisters rachel and becky, and we all headed out. and let me tell you, we three young girls looked adorable. 🙂 we all had fun going from house to house, munching on snacks and visiting. one couple forgot about the party and had company over, so when we arrived they scrambled to find something to give us kids.

fast forward to high school. i have so many memories of halloween parties and getting together with friends to go trick-or-treating. yes, we may have been too old, but we were having fun.

now i’m creating new memories with my husband and, someday (hopefully soon!) our children.

happy halloween!

new blog

October 30, 2006

i have decided to change my blog. after trying and trying and trying and asking countless numbers of people, i was not able to figure out the xml code used in blogger beta. i’m just not that computer savvy. so here i am. this is a good move, though, because i plan very soon to move my blog to my own domain. so here i am. bookmark my new address!
