Happy Halloween! I can’t believe it’s already October 31st.
Dressing up together for the first time ever, my monkeys’ costumes were inspired by the graphic novel Wonderland by Tommy Kovac. Sweet Pea is the sweetest Alice — especially with a curtsey. It’s not surprising that the Queen of Hearts costume makes Bean even sassier! We have a few friends joining the cast of characters from Alice in Wonderland tonight for trick-or-treat.
How great is it that Halloween falls on a Saturday this year? Having the day off to enjoy the holiday is so delicious. We’ve been cooking, lounging, and reading all day. I just finished Me Before You. I’ve read 3 of Jojo Moyes books this month, and I don’t think I’ll be able to stop until I read them all. That good! I absolutely loved The Ship of Brides and One Plus One.
Some really important information for tonight: Halloween Candy Wine Pairings. If you’re going to eat it, might as well pair it perfectly. Also critical: What Your Favorite Halloween Candy Says About You. When I used to eat Halloween candy, I was an M&M girl. Now my favorite indulgence is this organic chocolate bar. Seriously divine.
