Due to our recent exchanging of vows, my planning skills were tried from May 22, 2009 to the very end of the day on April 30, 2010. That's almost a solid year of matching colors, creatively collaborating, and so much more.
Herein lied the problem this Halloween season.
Because I had maxed out my innovative efforts earlier in the year, I had no desire (zero, zip, zilch) to celebrate/decorate/say-BOO come the last weekend in October. It was time to get away.
My solution = CAMPING. It's a great time for me to relax, catch up with friends, and give my mind a break. Bonus is Joe is completely satisfied fishing, building campfires, and hanging out with the boys. This year, we really had a much better time celebrating where we live with an overnight adventure on a deserted island versus some haunted hay ride.
