HAPPY HALLOWEEN ::

Thg-pumpkin

Sandy hit yesterday; her winds blowing on trees like dandelions, the leaves circling in the chaotic sky before slamming, heavy with rain, against the windows. But today was cold, wet, cloudy and calm and as the sun set, Amanda and I decided it was time to carve our handpicked pumpkin. 

Because of early onset indecisiveness, we settled for a round of Hocus Pocus. Then after jamming out to “I Put a Spell on You” and searching IMDB to see what happened to Thora Birch’s acting career, we settled on the iconic Mockingjay from The Hunger Games trilogy. Awesomeness followed as we cut, traced, carved and stabbed our little pumpkin. The Civil Wars and Frank Ocean flowed out of the red Jambox and we finished the evening by fashioning a semi-stable candle contraption inside the pumpkin, turning off the lights and admiring our handiwork.

Happy Halloween!

First, props to Laura Tulli out in San Diego [by way of Dallas by way of Philly] for bringing us all together on a fun, fall afternoon in Manhattan. I started off the morning getting lost in Central Park, we wound up in Cloud City on the roof of The Met, had tea and coffee at Joe, let the golden leaves run through my fingers with the wind, stopped by Magnolia for some tasty autumn night treats, and retired with glasses of red wine and good movie.

[movie] trailer tuesday ::

So excited for Fitzgerald Family Christmas to hit theaters this holiday. I'm going to brag a bit and let it be known that the company I work for did the finishing for this film. Woot! It's neat to see all of our hard work pay off.
