When I posted the “Everyday is Halloween” blog, I left out an entire thing about our little Halloween party.  As I said in the other Halloween themed post, I love an excuse to eat candy and have fun.  When I was a kid, I especially loved Halloween parties and always looked forward to having parties…

Everyday is Halloween

All my friends know that I love Halloween!  Really, what’s not to like?

My husband’s sign is Virgo, which in astrology speak translates into being…

Take Me Home Country Roads
