It’s finally cooling down here in Nashville. The leaves are changing colors and I can step outside without instantly sweating. It feels like it took a lot longer for the weather to cool down this year. I blame Global Warming.
Besides the obsessive cleaning and organizing I conquered around the house, my focus is revolving around taking things slowly and enjoying the people around me. I started reading more. Stephen King literature and film are keeping the Halloween vibes brewing. I’m currently switching lanes with Gone Girl and it’s just what I need right now.
Halloween is next week (!!!). Max and I are actually taking it seriously this year – our costumes have either been non existent or just super last minute for the past couple years. This year we’re coming out with a bang. Also, where are my haunted house peeps at? There’s one down the street from my house and I have to go before the season is over.
One of my favorite things about our neighborhood is how close some of our best friends are. Max and I had dinner with our friends Andrea and Dylan along with pumpkin carving (!!!!!!). As a lover of all holidays, I admire how in touch with the season we are this year.
I didn’t snap a lot of pics (because I was living life) but it was a great time as always. After taco salads we shuffled outside and started carving at the gourds. My skills as an artist are extremely limited so I have this special looking kitty. I tried going off a very simple photo from Pinterest…but Max ended up helping me make it actually look like a cat. True love.
Andrea has a travel blog from her adventures, along with some recipes. I can vouch for her – she knows what she’s doing in the kitchen! You should definitely check her out at the-aword.blog!
That’s about all I’ve got for now. What are you doing to enjoy this season so far?
