Happy Halloween!  For the first time in years, I'm feeling a bit blue on Halloween.  I take that back, last year I did b/c it was my first year without my dad... Halloween was his favorite holiday (as well as mine).  But this year, I guess b/c I have so many new raw emotions going on inside me, I really don't feel it.  I might not dress up tonite, for the first time in... uh, my whole life!  I'm just not sure.  I feel like such a debbie downer lately.  Boo... So, I thought I'd share my costumes from the past 3 years.  And (if) I happen to end up dressing up tonite, then I'll be back with more... I hope everyone enjoys their evening, and of course stays safe!

2009 - Sugar Skull
(This year seems to be the year of the sugar skull, I've seen this costume everywhere this year!)

I waited tables in this costume and had a blast.

2010 - The Bird Keeper
2011 - Gypsy Fortune Teller

  1. Last year, I felt super blue on Halloween and didn't dress up (I also posted pictures of costumes past!). I'm feeling a little blue this year too. Wish you could come over and we could just drink wine and talk! I love all of your costumes from previous years - beautiful!

  2. You look adorable in all of these! I'm glad you're not pressuring yourself to dress up if you're not up for it. Wishing you a nurturing Halloween night.

  3. I LOVE all of your costumes! I was a sugar skull last year! I did a post like this today too. :)

  4. awww, i know that feeling. remember to luxuriate in taking the year off, if you decide to do so. you can still celebrate Samhain in your own way with a private ceremony (key words: gratitude and ghosts!) and use this evening to connect with the people you love who have passed to the other side....papmer yourself and drink tea, take a bath and breath as though each moment is a sacred. xoxox loving you.

  5. I love your past Halloween costumes, So creative! I also love your honesty. Glad I stumbled upon your blog today. I'm not really dressing up, but that's because I'm working all day/night. I hope you find some brightness in this day and have a lovely evening!

  6. I love your 2010 costume!
    I hope you're more into the holiday this year, even as a way to honor your dad :)

  9. Awesome costumes! I think the fortune teller is my FAVE :)

  10. The bird keeper is soooo unique, love the idea!

  11. love all your past costumes. very creative. and don't worry about this year--i didn't dress up either. life gets busy and tiring. but it doesn't mean you're done with it forever. <3

  12. I love all of your costumes! My favorite is the bird keeper. SO stylish. But you really are such a glamour-puss as a fortune teller. And I agree, the sugar skull thing is in this year. I also did the sugar skull thing in 2009, though. Hopefully you can eat some candy and feel better tonight.

  13. I think the bird keeper is my favorite. It is so creative!
