And just like that it’s 2019! I am so excited for the highs and lows and adventure that awaits this year. Most importantly, I’m ready to countdown to another Halloween with you!
I started this blog only six months ago, and I have made such wonderful friends here. I wish everyone and their family a warm, happy and healthy 2019!
In true Halloween spirit, I wanted to do something festive to kick off a great year while staying true to my unusual nature. That meant, I needed to carve the first pumpkin of 2019 – a New Year’s gourd.
As we get nearer to October, I begin to contemplate what kind of pumpkin creation I will make. A good jack-o-lantern deserves much thought and precise execution – something that I lack when it comes to pumpkin carving. My husband on the other hand KILLS it at carving up a gourd. I attribute his successful carving and steady hand to the amount of patience he has (I am the most impatient person) along with his creative background (he is musician like myself, and a graphic artist).
This post is a bit of a an homage to all pumpkins past and future! I also hope you will find some inspiration for your jack-o-lantern this year by reading it.
