Hey guys. Long time no post. I'll admit, this unemployed this has made me feel a little weird for the past month. Also, I got a new laptop and I was so used to my old one I have been intimidated to start editing photos again. But I'm doing it! Travis and I took a really great vacation to the Pacific Northwest and I have so much to show you!
But I'll start right here with Halloween! One of my favorite times of the year! I didn't end up decorating this year (I actually sold my taxidermy collection. Can you believe it?) but I threw together a witch costume and felt pretty cute in it. My best friend Crystal was the girl gremlin of course. We both love any excuse to wear full body paint.
Travis wore his classic body suit. Sadly it finally ripped too much and he gave it a Viking burial (aka he burned it in our fire pit! haha) Definitely worth the 99 cents we spent all those years ago.
We went to the coolest immersive theater event on Halloween night call Slasher! There was a dance party afterward (and lots of Slasher punch), then we went to a friends house to dance some more! It isn't a party now unless my knees hurt the morning after.
The Friday night before Halloween Travis went with me to a reading/talk by Deborah Harkness at the Nashville public library! I loved it! I read her All Souls Trilogy over the summer, and am excited that some more work dealing with the same world is coming out. The coolest thing was Harkness is a historian by trade, and hearing her motivations and inspirations for the story was fascinating! I'm so glad my friend Jill let me know about this the day before!
That same Friday we tried to go to Springfield to do a flashlight corn maze (aka corn maze at night) but it was closed. We had driven so far we decided to do the haunted woods instead and I was SO SCARED! I almost didn't go through with it. I'm such a chicken! The waiting in line turned out to be scarier than the trail! Haha. It was pretty fun and I only screamed maybe 5 times. And there was a 60 foot slide in the woods in the dark that was thrilling! I did wimp out when everyone else went through the fun house. Maybe next year.
I hope your Halloween was as fun as mine was! I'll be back soon to tell you about our trip (did I mention we had an amazing time???) and tell you about my job situation. I'm making a decision right now that means I have to be brave, and I'm not usually that. We'll see how everything shakes out.
