Happy Halloween my Wanderers! Ok ok, I know Halloween was actually yesterday, but that’s when I made these cocktails, so it’s basically still Halloween on this blog.
This month just flew by. October is always one of my busiest months, cause it’s my favorite and I like to pack it full of seasonal fun! Apple picking, corn mazes, pumpkin patches, parties, eating and drinking pumpkin everything, haunted houses, and just all sorts of spooky goodness. I love it all, and I wouldn’t change any of the craziness.
However with an unusually packed social calendar comes a certain level of neglect towards regular life stuff. So I also always look forward to November. The Halloween insanity has passed, and the whirlwind that is Christmas hasn’t started yet. It’s like a calm between two storms, and a perfect chance to catch up on life.
Meaning all those apartment projects I’ve been putting off might actually get finished. And I MIGHT even work on dealing with all the random stuff I left behind at my parents house during my move this past spring. Maybe. This also means that I will have some extra time to give some much needed love and attention to this blog.
Ok this intro got really long…oops. I made this cocktail last night to enjoy while carving pumpkins and watching the original “Dracula” with Robbie and my sister, and it was the perfect addition for our festive evening!
