This post is intentionally not titled “Halloween”.
I have decided that I don’t like Halloween. In the past, I have enjoyed pumpkin patch pictures, carving jack-o-lanterns, pumpkin seeds, making fall treats, dressing up and trick or treating! All of the above!
This time around, though, all I’ve done is stress about candy, HFCS, dyes, gluten, soy, and how to keep all of that to a minimum. I’ve felt guilty about not feeling up to going to the pumpkin patch. We didn’t even buy a pumpkin to carve. I have had so many negative feelings about this holiday that I decided to hate it.
But that’s okay! I’m NOT going to beat myself up, because there’s always next year, and we still had fun, and not every holiday has to be perfect. That being said, I will continue to dislike Halloween in the future. Intensely.
I didn’t get many, but here are a couple SOOC pictures of my Ironman and my Cupcake.
