I NEVER thought I’d say this. I miss Halloween. I was the mom who was panic-struck; throwing together a rather sad costume at the very last minute. It was one of those holidays that always seemed to sneak up on me, while all the other moms had it DOWN; with perfectly carved pumpkins, spooky decorations, and hand-made costumes. Lucky for me, my daughter preferred to hand out treats rather than schlep all over the neighborhood! But now that she is well past trick-or-treat, I yearn a bit for this mid-autumn celebration that’s mainly about two things: community and candy. Not so bad, after all. We’ve included a round-up of Halloween events to add to your calendar and some other fun fall-ish things on this list. love, Erica To read the entire newsletter, click here.
