Okay – so it’s finally October, which means it’s officially the Month of Halloween. Wahoo!! It also means it’s Spring for us in New Zealand and that Summer is just around the corner. I know that’s totally unrelated, but if you knew what our weather over here is like – you would be cheering for us! Summer! Summer! Summer!
