I can’t lie: I wasn’t sure how this Halloween was going to go. I think the first time is always the worst because you’re never sure how it’s going to feel. But surprisingly, my first single girl Halloween since I was fifteen was better then I could have ever expected. Two parties, the best of friends, a bottle of wine to myself and my hilarious parents–that’s what makes Halloween worth it to me. And there is still one more party to go tonight. There is a reason this is my favorite holiday, and I think the pictures just make it that much more evident.
