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!

Cemetery Gates…

A new painting I did for my brother, Mike called Cemetery Gates. I did this painting in memory of our Mom but also a tribute to his strength and all that I admire about him and her. I gave it to him for his birthday and he’s already talking about it inspiring his next tattoo 🙂

The way we were,
The chance to save my soul…
And my concern is now in vain.
Believe the word,
I will unlock my door…
And pass the cemetery… gates
– Pantera

Love You Bro!
