Hello there! Mr. B and I are back from Italy. My long pause was not intentional but was the result of extreme jet lag (this has never happened to me before!) that rolled into the groove of getting back into day-to-day life, otherwise known as “reality”. Last night it finally dawned on me that the month is already over and Halloween is literally here today. So, speaking of Halloween… there’s no denying that black is the designated color of the day so let’s enjoy a bit of the dark, moody, and dramatic just for the heck of it. Happy Halloween!
