Happy Halloween

I've never been much of a Halloween person.
I don't like being cold, I hate being scared and I really don't like chocolate (shocker, I know. Take a minute if you need it.)

(Ready?)
Tonight I'm at my favorite coffee shop doing homework, but I don't really mind.
Besides, this year J. L. and I dressed up for my boss's annual Halloween party and actually had a bunch of fun!

Also to celebrate Halloween/Fall we went to an awesome pumpkin farm:

I always have fun with Jenn, J. L. and A.J.!

I even painted a pumpkin with my students:

This is the most Nashville pumpkin I've ever seen :)

Cute, right?

Hope you're enjoying your Halloween however you celebrate!

7. Chinese offings 8. Beautiful statue 9. East African chair, drums and basket

One of the reasons I love Nashville so much is the amount of festivals we have. It was FREEZING this weekend (okay, it was 50 and sunny, but it was WINDY and I was wearing shorts!), but we had an awesome time at Celebrate Nashville sampling food, listening to music, learning traditional dances and checking out the traditional items produced by countries around the world and citizens of Nashville originally from those places.
