Happy Halloween!

It's fun getting things for your home to decorate for the major Holidays such as  Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving. I love that this Halloween decor can stay out through the Thanksgiving Holiday:

10/31/10: Off to see the Wizard!

Halloween has always been a favorite Holiday of mine; I have always enjoyed deciding what to be each year, and then finding the perfect costume to wear. Although between the ages of 10 and 14 I was happy to dress up as a witch every year, when I was super young my Mom always had creative costumes for me to wear.  I remember my Mom once made my own ruby red slippers to go with my Dorothy costume. She covered a pair of shoes in glue and red glitter; they were so great. This year, I will be Dorothy, and from a pair of old pink leather shoes I do not wear anymore, I made my own Ruby Red Slippers.

Autumn @ Amherst

Last weekend Cem and I vitisted my sister at her University, UMass Amherst. It was a gorgeous weekend, perfect fall weather, and the campus looked so pretty during this time of year.  My sister - Veronica, and her boyfriend Mark took us on a walk through a series of paths through the woods around the one side of the campus. It was nice during the day, but I imagine it could be spooky at night!
