Pumpkins carved ✅ Candy bought ✅ Witch hat dusted off ✅ I think we’re ready for another Halloween. 👻 Our neighborhood is a popular trick-or-treat destination, and the last few years, we’ve had between 400-500 kids show up. We park ourselves on the front porch with a glass of wine and go until we run out of candy or wear out. 😆
A few years ago, I would have carved more elaborate jack-o-lanterns. These days I freehand it with a boning knife, and keep it simple. Still, I was happy with how this year’s batch turned out. With the continued high fire danger, you bet I’m using flameless candles!
There’s Still Time…
…to order the November My Stylish French Box! Sharon Santoni of My French Country Home personally selects all of the uniquely French items for each box. They make exquisite holiday gifts, too. Contents are kept a surprise (which is half the fun!) but I can reveal that one of the gifts will be something from La Savonnerie Royale, an artisanal maker of high quality soaps and candles.
And Sharon has introduced a limited-edition Holiday “Daughter Box” for a daughter, granddaughter, niece, or other special young person.
Do you get a lot of trick-or-treaters where you live?
