Things Are Getting Crafty! Carving Pumpkins For Halloween
Happy Halloween Everyone!
One of the most magical holidays of the year is finally here! Actually, some might consider it the first holiday to kick-off the holiday season. On this day, every year, I’m asking myself: “how the hell did another Halloween creep up so fast?” Anyway, I’m so happy to be celebrating the spookiest day of the year once again.
We have been impatiently waiting for the holiday season.
This is due to one main reason. Before Hannah and I moved in together back in May, we spent the holidays separately. No decorations, no traditions, nada. During our first year of dating, Hannah lived on campus and I still lived at home, so we celebrated holidays with our families. No biggie, we love our families. This just means we never had an opportunity to really enjoy holidays together as a couple. This year is different, and let’s just say we’re beyond excited about it.
I never considered myself much of a Halloween fan.
I loved Halloween as a kid, probably for the same reasons most kids did: candy, costumes and that feeling of pure excitement that the day brings. Once I started high school, Halloween stopped feeling exciting. Maybe because I felt too old to be excited about a day dedicated to playing dress up. I know, I lost my imagination for a while, tragic. Now that my high school days are long gone, I’ve found that excitement for Halloween again. I have to credit Hannah for this one though. I didn’t find my excitement for Halloween alone.
On the other hand, Hannah is a lifelong lover of all things Halloween. So much that she wanted to decorate our apartment with creepy skulls, skeleton fingers and other creepy things I wouldn’t agree too. This is a true story, guys. Luckily for me, we talked it through and we decided not to go that route. Halloween is cool and all, but I’m not the biggest horror fan. So skulls and spider webs inside our apartment wouldn’t sit well with me for an entire month.
We will be spending this Halloween apart.
Although this is our first Halloween in our first apartment, we will not be spending it together. Hannah has class all day until 10:00 pm on Tuesdays so sadly, she’ll be in class, while I’ll be home watching Disney Channel Originals. I do have young nieces and nephews who are 10 and below, so I might be tagging along with my sister while she takes my nieces trick or treating. Let’s be honest, if you have young ones in your life, the true fun in Halloween is seeing them light up with joy while wearing those adorable costumes.
Back to the point, Hannah and I knew we wouldn’t be together on Halloween night, so we made it our business to do some Halloween activities the weekend before. We picked the prettiest pumpkins we could find and carved them for the first time ever! Well, it was a first for me anyway. It’s important to us to create memories together and carving these pumpkins will be a memory we cherish forever.
