Boktoberfest





On Saturday I attended Boktoberfest at Bok Tower Gardens. I had been wanting to go for years now and now that I have weekends off, I was finally able to go.

*Those little wooden ornaments are from a Halloween tree that I have had since I was a little girl.

Poe of course) and have purchased tickets to a local production of The Addams Family Musical. This October is going to be a great one.
