2013... our first stateside halloween since 2008. The kids were so excited! Unfortunately, my oldest, who may not be at this much longer, was sick all week. But for Zach, my little guy, this was a night of nights! And then I started thinking about all the little newborns I've met this year. This is their year of firsts.... first halloween, first Thanksgiving, first Hanukkah or Christmas. So many new and exciting things for them to discover in these next few months. And not only for them, but for their parents. The way I saw , felt, experienced holidays was infinitely changed after my daughter was born.
So maybe it seems odd to be so sentimental on Halloween. I think it's this time of year upon us... the "Thankful" season. Maybe it's having been abroad for these past few years and rediscovering everything like it's the first time again. Whatever the reason, my wish for you and yours is that you savor all the firsts, all the little moments in the coming months. You'll never get these little milestones back and you'll be forever changed having been a part of them. Happy Halloween!
