in holiday limbo

I'm over it. It's only October 15 and I'm completely over Halloween. I'm ready to pack up the candle holders, faux cobwebs and orange mini-lights and move on.

Maybe I jumped on it too early this year. Though, in my defense, I really didn't decorate or start buying miniature treats until October 8. Maybe I should realize that a day like Halloween really only needs to last 24 hours, rather than an entire month. I don't even really like Halloween, anyway. What was I thinking?

I do, however, love fall. I love the crunchy leaves on the ground and the crispness in the air. I love bundling up for a hike or a run. And over the weekend, Husband and I realized that we both love delicious pumpkin lattes.

I keep looking at the pumpkins that Husband and I bought last weekend, thinking that I really have no interest in carving them. Rather than the standard jack-o-lantern designs, I think I'll try something a little more representative of the season —


  1. Well I'm almost ready to start trimming for Christmas...

    Guess who!

  2. Mum, you're not allowed to start decorating for Christmas until after my birthday! You know the rules! xoxo

  3. I didn't decorate for Halloween -- and probably won't -- but I will definitely be carving pumpkins. That's my favourite part of Halloween!

  4. Frank carves neat pumpkins, although they are Halloween themes, for the kids.

  5. Those fancy pumpkins are fabulous!! Love them!
