Welcome, November

Aaron the monk, Steve as a clown detective, and me as Marcie from the Peanuts.

Thanks to all of you who voted on my previous post, Rock the Vote: Fall Edition. The winners were: Marcie, slouchy boots, and slumber party. The boots and party votes were both close, but Marcie won by a mile. Previous to the poll, I was actually leaning toward dressing up as Waldo for Halloween, but you all spoke out loud and clear. So Marcie it was!

Usually Steve and I put lots of thought into our Halloween costumes. This year, however, we threw them together at the last minute. Most of my Halloween energy went into sewing Aaron's monk costume. We spent Halloween afternoon walking around West Hollywood. In the evening, we hung out on the front porch to give out candy to trick-or-treaters. It was an uncharacteristically low-key Halloween for us, which was a pleasant change. More Halloween photos here.

And now it is November, quite possibly the best month of the year. The chilly weather is perfect, Starbucks is serving pumpkin spice drinks, and Thanksgiving is around the corner. I found the perfect slouchy brown suede boots, which I am determined to wear as frequently as possible during the next few months. There is an abundance of firewood sitting in our living room, just waiting for those nippy days that call for a toasty fireplace. Also, we got our flu vaccinations, so no flu viruses here!

I wish you all a wonderful month of November.
