when pumpkins glow by midnight.

Who doesn't love holidays? They can be an awful lot of fun. Halloween is one of those holidays that just makes you smile. There are costumes, parties, and candy. What could be more exciting? Normally I don't do a whole lot on the day itself. Watch Halloween movies, nibble on some chocolate, and hang out with my family. Honestly? I like it that way! Every now and then I throw on a costume and hit up a club or party....but a movie night is my idea of a perfect Halloween.

This year I will be doing something very different. No movies or candy for me. One of my friends is actually getting married. Yes, on Halloween! It is a costume free night however. So that means no Halloween fare. Does it make me sad? A little. But I am ridiculously excited to see someone I love tie the knot. I know it will be a truly special day.

Since many of the holiday traditions will be off my radar this year, I wanted to do an inspiration post of sorts. More for my own benefit than anything else. But hopefully you will enjoy it, too! These are a few of the Halloween pictures I have been loving lately.

Halloween is a magical time. Ghosts, goblins, and zombies roam the earth. Or at least costumed versions of them! I hope you all have an amazing night tonight....whatever you have planned!

How are you celebrating Halloween?
