Ocotober Photography Challenge! Day 1: Fall

October Photography Challenge!
Day 1: Fall

I have been waiting for this day for quite some time now. October First. Fall is here. Fall is the most wonderful time of the year. I absolutely love everything about it. Apple cider, caramel apples, crisp, cool weather (someday hopefully), and beautiful sunsets. But there is something I associate above all else with fall, and I am sure you all know what that is. HALLOWEEN, of course!!

In my heart, it is Halloween all year round. But when it is officially October and fall has arrived, I feel like everything is perfect and right in this world. Jack-o-lanterns and tombstones start popping up in yards everywhere, every other TV channel is airing a spooky special, and for once, my house looks normal as it is littered in Halloween decor in every nook and cranny.

This year while waiting for fall to arrive, there has been one thing on my mind and one thing only: CALIFORNIA! In 24 days I will be living out some very important life-long dreams. This fall, I will finally see Disneyland at Halloween time and the Haunted Mansion Holiday Nightmare Before Christmas takeover ride. I have been literally dreaming about doing this for years. To top it off, Tim Burton has an exhibit in California, and I will his art in person. Tim Burton is my Halloween hero, the person who has influenced everything in me from the things that I make down to the clothes that I wear, and I will see his creepy art at Halloween time. Goosebumps, I tell ya'- I just got goosebumps.
