asheville gatherings

a little halloween recap.

3 Nov 2013

i was back in the states for halloween this year… and it was great! after three years in sweden (one of them in ireland), i was dying for a traditional kinda halloween. well, it’ll never be like it was for me when i was kid because, well, i’m not a kid. and i don’t go trick or treating anymore. and i don’t have kids. so it’s an adult-acting-like-a-kid kinda halloween for me these days = just as fun, only in a different way. anyway, this year we had plans. plans for costumes. plans for a haunted comedy tour on a bus with my brother. plans for hanging out in downtown asheville in our costumes. and plans for candy, decorations, and pumpkin carving.

here’s a little bit of what happened on the day of ghouls & goblins:

(i mentioned it in this blog). they are two women in prison, in a relationship, and busted for dealing drugs. it’s an amaaaazing show, so if you haven’t seen it, get netflix and check it out. we love it. and that’s my awesome little bro dressed as a monk. have i mentioned how much i love living near him again?!

it was pretty much a great halloween! hope yours was too. how much candy ya got left over? hehe.

peace out.

    Looks like you had a great time! I was, as I am each year, a gypsy. πŸ™‚ My daughters tell me I’m pretty well that every day, not just on Halloween. πŸ™‚

    I was a wanderer this year. Fingers crossed I won’t be one next year. It looks like you had fun!

    So much I want to say re: all of your previous posts but no time!
    As a girl who lost her big bro- all I’ll say is– hug him- every, single time.

      I will. Every single time. Love to you, Tracy.

    halloween is my favorite! mine was pretty low-key this year, though I still dressed in my pirate attire.
    i’ve heard that show recommended a few times now.. but i didn’t really know what it was about. i may have to actually check it out in the near future.

    thanks for sharing; love the pictures!

    I didn’t do anything on the actual Halloween but all parties were either the weekend in advance (Oct 26) or the weekend after (Nov 1). Next year it’ll finally fall on a Friday, so no confusion as to what party to attend, then.
