We’re closing in on Halloween and I’m pretty excited about it. Last year I posted about Halloween and Missed Opportunities and with that fresh in my mind, I started planning my Halloween costume really early, like nine months early and while I did change ideas a couple times, I’m really happy about what I settled […]
