A Haunted House of Our Own

"The best gifts come from the heart, not the store." 

This past Sunday, I received a handmade haunted House, as a token of appreciation for helping Georgia SPCA during their Howl-O-Ween event. This haunted house was made by one of the volunteers and  I'm in love with it. Everything that comes from the heart, better yet, anything that is handmade is 100 times more valuable to me. I truly appreciate all the hard work and attention to detail that was put into this house. From the witch hanging from the ceiling, the furry trick-or-treaters, the cemetery on the front, the skeletons dancing on the back and the witch flying above the house, this is one gift I will truly cherished and never forget. 

Halloween is also about giving back. Some people give candy, some use this time to raise awareness, some volunteer, and a very special few use this time to express their creativity. I have been lucky enough to experience it all. I'm am extremely blessed for meeting so many amazing people during Howl-O-Ween. No words can describe how this token of appreciation makes me feel. I love how the universe is playing games on me and is giving me lots of "treats" instead of "tricks".  

Halloween is what you make of it, so please, choose love and kindness instead of "tricks". Namaste!
