The weather is finally cooling off (a bit), leaves are changing color and carpeting the sidewalks, and Halloween is tomorrow! My favorite season has truly arrived at last!
I couldn’t resist dressing up as Susie from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (a hilarious and smart show that I highly recommend you watch) even though I knew most people would simply mistake me for an angry plumber haha. I love dressing up so Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays no matter how old I get. Are any of you dressing up and participating in any Halloween activities?
