After 19 years...

...we had a little reunion of some of my AOPi sisters here in Nashville. What a blast! I am not sure I ever subscribed to the "these will be your friends for life" bit when I was pledging a sorority some 23 years ago as I am a bit cynical. But here we stood many years later as if no time at all had past, rehashing old memories and making new ones that will thread us together for years to come. I am so glad I was a part of this group - these women are amazing, smart, beautiful, funny, and confident - exactly the kind of women I would choose for my friends today. So, here's to you ~ my beautiful sisters ~ alpha love!

Happy Haunting!

It was a spooky site on Paddy Trace as the Reeds geared up for a night of haunting. We carved pumpkins in the afternoon, Vince spending the most time creating an intricate Gator/OU pumpkin ~ awesome! And he says he isn't artistic! I was feeling witchy and dressed accordingly ~ however, I didn't scare any children. In fact, one little three-year-old girl said she wanted to be in my witch family so she was going to dress like a witch next year. Too cute!
I took Ben to his cousin's and we hung out at the street party for awhile before trick-or-treating with my vampire nephew, niece and brother! Sarah went to her friend's party and trick-or-treated in her hood. Vince wore his Darth Vadar costume and passed out candy to kids ~ taking time to talk to each one ~ maybe too much, as one 6-yr-old said, "Can I just get my candy please?"
Isn't that essentially what it is all about? Candy! Hope your haunt was delicious!
