How it is that I’ve been a Brooklyn mom for the last seven Halloweens and never been to the Botanic Garden’s Ghouls & Gourds seasonal kid-fest, I do not know. But tomorrow I’ll right that wrong by putting the kids in their costumes (Darth Vader and “pink” Batgirl, in case you were wondering) and heading over for some fun, rain or shine. On tap: dancing, music, crafts, big puppets, books and authors, and the garden’s pretty fall colors.
Other fall random-ness:
* An over-priced but possibly irresistible little lounge-y chemise from Anthro that I can totally see myself padding around the house in this autumn. Mmm-hmmm.
* And…. Last: A little bit of life wisdom from working mom SJP — “The firsts go away — first love, first baby, first kiss. You have to create new ones.”
Keep it real, people. Keep it new, keep it fresh, keep it fun.
Go love life this weekend.
Meet you back here next week.
