Happy Halloween!

October 31, 2011

On my 40th birthday, I wore Jenny’s Traveling Red Dress. And today, as I watch Harry get ready for tonight (Darth Vader in the house!), I’m reminded that there’s power in putting on a costume. I wrote about it today on Hitting Refresh.

“I know tonight, as little kids everywhere don their fantastical princess outfits, their super hero leotards of justice, or (in our case) their super evil Darth Vader garb, for just a few hours, they’re becoming something completely different…and something completely themselves too.”

Go on over there to read more (and see lots of red dress photos)…

Happy Halloween!
