Today is all around awesome because it is the 1st day of October. Which is the best month of the year. 13 years ago in October I started to date Frank. We first started talking in October and had our first date October 24th, 1998. It was our Homecoming dance our senior year of high school. Our 2nd date being Fright Fest the very next day. 
Homecoming 1998 – Our 1st Date 10-24-98
11 years later we were married on Halloween.

This time of year has always been my favorite since I was a little girl and sharing so many wonderful milestones with my husband this time of year has made it that much more special. I can’t believe we will be together 13 years and married 2 this year. Lucky 13!!! Ha Ha! It makes my heart smile. 
On top of of all of this.. October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. With my Mom passing away from the disease it is also a time for me to not mourn about losing her but doing something to help raise awareness or support the cause. 
My beautiful Mom, Lynne
And with perfect timing my friends in Expired Empire are planning a benefit show. I will be donating a the PINK Dead Girl Webbed Decay barrette/pin as a prize.
Since it is Halloween weekend me and my husband will not be at the event because we will be out of town celebrating our anniversary but I am honored to do something to help make the event a success and raise money for the cause.
Happy October!

  1. Congratulations!!! You two seem perfect for each other. you should get a tattoo for it lol, I know getting a tattoo on friday 13th is meant to be lucky, so I'm sure being together 13 years would be lucky…I think. I don't know what I'm talking about.I truly am sorry about your mother but well done for spreading the support, you can bet cancer support will be getting more of my money this month


  2. I love this post!! It put a smile on my face. I love seeing pictures of you and your husband growing up and on your wedding day, it's such a warm and wonderful feeling to have. 🙂


  3. Thanks Cherry and JK!! Our tattoo artist actually promised us a wedding tattoo but we just haven't came up with what we want yet. Something that symbolizes it all without any names. I dont like name tattoos unless they are memorial tattoos or of someones kid etc. So we still are trying to come up with the best way to express our love but in a design and symbolizing our wedding. I have some ideas. Just not sure yet and well if your not sure then you should always wait tattoo wise.


  4. Hellow Real Queen – yes it was a blast. All night everyone kept saying how our wedding was so us and they had never been to a wedding like it 🙂 It was very memorable. I went to my Mom's grave yesterday and left a beautiful fall bouquet of leaves and berries in her vase. I wanted her to feel the fall love as well.


Listen to them. Children of the night. What music they make....
