Halloween happiness

Mark my word, there will be a party next year. With all the lack of haps this year, I'm just not gonna let that happen again. Halloween is too great of a holiday to go anti.

The past 5 years for me have been rough around this day as it is the anniversary of my grandfather's death. He passed just 5 years ago on the 27th of October and we had his funeral on Halloween day. Even though time passes by, I can't help but feel the pangs of sadness. This man had such an influence in my life. He was so jolly, so loveable. Everybody in town knew him. He was so memorable. He would have wanted me to celebrate this day.

Halloween was one of his favorite holidays. Every year he dressed as Fred Flintstone. He loved to give candy out to the children walking up and down the block. The young ones of the family always made a trip over as their last stop of the night. No one could be a better Fred than this man. "Yabba dabba do!"

I wish for just one more time, I could squeeze him tight...make him laugh so I can see his smile. I can still feel the whiskers of his chin when he used to plant a kiss on my cheek. And his round hard belly in between the way of my small wingspan wrapped around him when I hugged him goodbye. I miss him so much.

Everything he had was "just for you." He liked to please and make everyone around him happy. If he baked a cake, he baked it just for me (though, the next person to walk through the door, he made sure to tell them he baked it just for them, too). If it was Italian bread he bought, he bought it just for me (though, he really did cause every Sunday I came over there were 2 for me, and one for everyone else. He knew how much I liked it, so he made sure there was always enough). It was always something with him. He knew how to make everything just right for everyone.

A man that has seen the world had loved nothing more than just being home and with his family. He was a stern father of 7 boys and 3 girls but was as gentle as a kitten of a grandfather of 15. I'm so happy he got to meet all 15 of his grandchildren, but I'm so sad that half of them won't get to remember his magnetism and have the kind of memories I got to share with him.

There's nothing like a relationship between a girl and her grampa. <3

Again, Happy Halloween everyone. Tell me what you wore. I can't wait to see all the costumes.

2AM Club

Dearest friends,

I apologize for taking so long to get pictures up from last week's Trainwreck (sadly, I have lots of other commitments I have to concentrate on, too), and I apologize for the confusion of the changing of domain names (I tried to make the easiest transition possible...for everyone).

BUT without any further adieu...the only thing you really care about in my babbling: pics from our fun night out.
Babes in boyland. It's not polite to stare.

Two of my favorite people. A party is not a party without either one of them.

Nash-town knows how to throw down.

Meeting Patrick was like meeting a celebrity. Jeremy's and his homeboys from home.

I'm not really sure either, but it's her party, and she can do as she please.

Me and the jerms...go all the way back to my "ghetto" days and before his first emo haircut.

No one touch her, she's mine.

What? My friends are amazing? I know.

Moose-staches for Angela. Okay now, where's the beard?

Whatcha got playin for me? Are we gonna have parties in your bedroom?

Ginger alert. Nobody move.

That's exactly my question.

What you want more? Fine...Click Here.

Via iPhone

This is my first official post from my iPhone and I'm just writing to say I loved seeing everyone out at Trainwreck last night. From besties to new all are friggin awesome. Seriously, I have amazing people in my life (I brag about this all the time, I know).

Anyways, I am up too early with a migraine and this is probably not helping, so check back again within the next week and I should have pictures up.

Unicorns and magic,
