Hello November!

I hope everyone had a safe and fabulous Halloween! My weekend was definitely full of festive fall fun, and I managed to work a bit of Canadensis spirit into my plans…

Friday night I left the office and drove straight to King of Prussia to meet up with some friends, and we all got in my car and drove off to our sorority’s hayride event. We drove all the way out to Media, PA to an orchard where 28 of us rode through the orchard at night for a not-so-haunted hayride, which was nice, because I do NOT like anything remotely frighting! After our hayride we were dropped off at a campfire, complete with a table covered in sticks, graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows… can you guess what that was for? Clearly it was S’MORES time!!! One of the girls commented on how well I made my s’more, using the graham crackers to take the mallow off the stick, avoiding the gooey mess everyone was accumulating on their fingers. I guess that’s just a sign of a properly trained camper!

Nom, Nom, Nom...

On Sunday Dani and I headed to NYC to spend Halloween doing what we love most, seeing a musical! We arrived in town early to meet the wonderful Emma Cohen for lunch! It was so good to see Emma, and of course we talked about camp.

After a lovely lunch we made our way to the theatre where we had 2nd row seats for Avenue Q. I saw Avenue Q back when it first came to Broadway, but this was Dani’s first time seeing the show in New York, so it was great to see her reaction. The cast was super, and there were lots of people in Halloween attire in the theatre. After the show we made our way back to Penn Station to start the trek home, and we noticed so many more people starting to dress up for the holiday. By the time we hopped the train home we had seen a large group of zombies, plenty of princesses, and everything in between. We made it home just in time to see the last of the Trick-or-Treaters come by the door.

So now it’s November, which brings us another month closer to the return of the camp season! I’m looking forward to fires in the fireplace and playing with puppies in the snow. My dogs are white so it’s really funny to watch them try to run around the yard. They’re also completely obsessed and curious about fire, so I’ll be sharing some very funny video of my little Leo running through the house and barking at the fireplace.

Well, that’s it for now! I’ll leave you all with this picture of Matt, very excited to receive a package he ordered online…
