A Dance with Halloween

Seasonal Color Analysis: Warm Autumn Memories of Halloween...

I can't remember the last year I actually wore a costume for Halloween. Probably before my son was born. Do you wear costumes? I used to get creative with mine, because I didn't want them to be too easy to figure out. And they weren't, LOL!

But I love to honor those kinds of special days with color, so, of course I was wearing a warm autumn orange.

Seasonal Color Analysis: A Deep Autumn Dancing...

My son's costume was on the cheap, too. We bought a pitchfork from the grocery store, turned a red shirt inside out to hide the design on the front and called it "devil." And he was thrilled, making menacing faces and sounds, and riding around with part of the pitchfork sticking out of the car window.

And then, we went to his ballroom dance class. Unfortunately, very few people have signed up this year, and I'm worried we may lose it if more don't start to show up.

But we enjoy it! I even get up and dance when they do the line dances. The other kids had on costumes, too, and my son had a blast!

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints


  1. I adore autumn colors! That sweater looks great on you.
    And YES, I do try to dress up every Halloween. You should dress up next year! Embarrass the heck out of your son! lol

  2. That is a lovely sweater, I love the color!

  3. Hi Jamie! Thanks!! I love them, too. LOL, I do so enjoy embarrassing him.

    I remember one afternoon, he dared me to get out of the car and dance in the parking lot, never dreaming that I would actually do it. Ha! That was fun. So maybe I *will* dress up next year :).

  4. Hi Lisa! Thanks!! I really love the color, too. It's my favorite!

  5. I'm a big fan of the warm autumn colors, too! That orange is great on you.

  6. Hi Meagan! Thanks!! I'm glad it works. It's not as bright as the other orange I usually wear.
