Halloween is my favorite Holiday. It was around that holiday that Mark and I started dating. For eight Halloweens we’ve carved jack-o-lanterns and dressed up together. For the past three, we’ve had kick-ass costumes. A trend that I hope continues.

This year we rocked as Axl and Slash from Guns N Roses. Shawn gave me a cigarette (which I did not smoke but kept in my mouth the whole night) and made me a Jack Daniels label for my Vitamin Water bottle so that I was an authentic Slash. Mark wore cutoffs, a blonde wig and Axl’s trademark bandana. If we had entered any costume contests we would have won again. I am sure of it.
