Day 305

I am grateful for the best Halloween ever. Tonight Jack and I went to a special screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show at Garden City. It was totally interactive with streamers, rice, party hats & poppers, newspapers, glow sticks, toast & toilet paper. I can't believe I remembered every word of every song. The audience were so into the fun of it all and it was a wonderful night - loved it! And so glad Jack came with me.

We loved the soundtrack from "500 Days of Summer" and Jack got it for me. I am also grateful for all the lovely texts and messages from James in Japan and the phone calls from Mike in Phillip Island. I love my boys so much.

I am so grateful for this boy of mine... His enthusiasm, inspiration and encouragement to help me with setting up my Etsy store have been phenomenal. I couldn't (and probably wouldn't) have done it without him and all his help today.  From his ideas and planning and background knowledge to physically preparing the first items, photography and finally adding my very first item for sale. His enthusiasm is addictive and I feel so good about what we achieved today. He has no idea how much I appreciate him and how grateful I am.
