Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return. - Mary Jean Iron

Unfortunately, Halloween came right before one of my big Anatomy tests, so Adam had to do quite a bit of convincing to get me to actually dress up and celebrate. We made a couple of new friends through our intramural ultimate frisbee team and they invited us to a potluck costume party. I am kind of embarrassed to say that on Halloween Eve, the two of us spent approximately 2 hours discussing possible costumes for the following days events. We thought of quite an extensive list but were limited by our determination to be festive on a budget of zero. After scrounging through the closet and making a quick trip to the grocery, we decided that I would go as Richards Simmons and Adam would be a Dictator (SEE BELOW).

All I can say is, Adam, you did not get that "creative" side of costume design from your mother! Looks like you guys had fun. Thanks for sharing.
love you, xoxo
