Last week was calm, this week is wild and fun as we run into Spoopy season!! I can't remember where Spoopy season comes from so if you do, send it to me (lol). Regardless, Spoopy season is the best season with pumpkin carving 🎃 the holiday season kickoff, and best of all - Cold Weather ❄️ (yay!)

Because of all this fun, there is an October challenge I'm kicking off with the help of my mom (who loves to get creative). I'll be publishing everyday this month with my responses to wild and wacky prompts that even I don't know, so tune in each day for the weirdness. I even created a tab at the top called "Spoopy" for you to find them all 👍🏼
