To play off the quote above, I had a truly amazing Halloween weekend with a women that always makes me laugh and who I always have a good time with, my mom.Β This whole girls weekend came about because my dad was going to visit friends so my mom and I decided to plan a girls Halloween weekend. So we got to planning an amazing weekend.

Our first adventure we snapped on our fall ensembles and went off to the magical Rise of the Jack O Lanterns Festival, which consisted of a maze of wonder in hand carved pumpkins. We saw a sea of jellyfish to Prince William & Princess Kate to a magical dragon. We snapped photos, laughed a lot, enjoyed the weather and kicked off our girls weekend of spending time without a hitch.

It was not Halloween Saturday and ready for the next adventure, which we have arrived at movie time of Something Wicked This Way Comes, one of my mom’s faves. I have never seen it before so it was special to share with my mom even if the movie was a little spooky, but perfect for the Halloween holiday. With the movie over and dinner just around the corner it was time to get in our Saturday Halloween evening dinner wear for a fabulous night at Mike & Anne’s, one of our faves in the area. Let me tell you, we ate amazing food from a Japanese pumpkin salad to some wine and scallops, pasta and ended it with splitting a holiday appropriate dessert pumpkin pie. It was another adventure for the books and ended with relaxation, which is always a treat.

It is Sunday morning the day after Halloween and our next, final adventure is here, one that my mom and I alway love doing, going to the flea market. A perfect time to shop for awesome finds, bond and enjoy a nice Sunday. Such amazing pieces at the flea market, lets just say I wanted a lot. One of the collest things was a Union 76 gas tank that could work as a coll coffee table and it reminded us of my dad who use to work for Union 76 Β corporate. The flea market is always fun when there with my mom and my dad always has us thinking of him one way or another when we are there πŸ™‚ .

The girls weekend was a hit and family was ever present, which leads me to this question, Why is it important to hang with your mom and the whole family? I have always known how important being with family is, but this girls weekend truly made me realize why it is. It is important becasue they are my heart and with them around my life just has more joy and happiness. I also realized it is special to hang out with each family member separately because it is more intimate in a different way and it is special as well when we all came together.

Life can get in the way sometimes, but it is important to make time for the ones who have your heart and I know I will hold this girls weekend with my mom forever in my heart.
