Happy Halloween! It’s that time of year were you can eat, drink, and be spooky! Halloween has turned into one of the biggest party days of the year and my kids are beyond excited. Camille’s a crypt bride and Bentley is here to save the day as a firefighter. As we carry on tradition, we’re planning on trick or treating in the always festive Ravenswood area and digging into a nice burrito bowl to end the night. I hope you have a Spooktacular Day! Drop me a note and let me know what you'll be up to!

And, of course, if you’re looking or know anyone who’s looking for a BOO-tiful new house or want to sell, please know that I'm more than happy to assist with your real estate needs! Drop me a line anytime!

In the meantime, if you've ever wondered why we celebrate Halloween, please see below for an interesting read.

  • The word "Halloween" comes from"All Hallows' Eve" and means "hallowed evening."
  • Hundreds of years ago, people dressed up as saints and went door to door, which is the origin of Halloween costumes and trick-or-treating.
