If you've known me long enough then you know that I LOVE costumes. I dressed up on The Screen Savers whenever I could for as long as they would let me. I think my love of dressing up came from my mom who made my Halloween costumes every year.
Whatever I could imagine, she could create. The year I couldn't decide between a queen and a blueberry, I was Queen of the Blueberries. The year I decided I wanted to be a writer (5th grade), I was a pencil.
Sadly, I cannot sew. But because my mom was so great at making costumes I couldn't bring myself to buy one for Annabella. Finally, last week I gave in and bought this one online. It was on sale because I'd waited so long, but I had to pay extra to get it here on time. I cut my losses.
I may not be able to make costumes like my mom did, but I will carry on the family tradition of wearing them again and again, long after Halloween. There aren't many excuses to dress up as Queen of the Blueberries in January, but that never stopped me.
