I'm in love with these vintage Halloween greeting cards...
I just have to say that I can't wait for tonight. I just love Halloween. It was one of my favorites as a kid. Especially because my parents always went all out...from the costumes and the scary movies, to the parties and the haunted houses...to the pumpkin carving, and warm bowls of dad's homemade chili. But Halloween was no different than any other holiday for my mom. She went crazy over every single one - big or small. I loved that she made all of our costumes by hand. Each one unique and creative. Each one carefully thought out. Each one made with love...
I hope that over the years, I will be able to create similar memories for my children, and that we, too, will be able to live each holiday to the fullest!
