Meet Jack

We got very into the Halloween spirit over the weekend and decided to do a little decorating! We can't go all out here because 1. as expats, we can't be here any longer than another 5 years, so whatever we buy will most likely be sold, thrown out or given away so there's no need to accumulate a load of scarecrows and witches as much as I'd like to, and 2. there's no storage in our apartment, so we can't accumulate anyway. But we did a little and I like it! Here's our door:

We also finally gave in and bought a pumpkin! I resisted at first, afraid it would rot in the heat, but it's been cool and raining a lot, so I think he'll last for a week at least.

This was the first time carving a Jack-O-Lantern ever for Mr. Julep. He said they didn't do that in Ireland when he was growing up so he particularly enjoyed doing this! I hadn't done one in probably 10 years or more so I was excited too! I think he turned out pretty good, don't you?

Hope you all have a Spook-Tacular week!!!
Pink Julep!



  1. Carving pumpkins is a blast and it definitely put you in the Halloween spirit!!

  2. How fun! It must be so interesting to create blended-culture holiday traditions!


  3. Great job on his first pumpkin! It looks great! Very festive!
