How the heck is it almost November? I still have a hard time remembering to say 2017 instead of 2016 when putting the date on a paper, but here we are, more than three-quarters of the way through the year. With Halloween just two days away, I want to hear everyone’s best Halloween costume choice. To be completely honest, I’ve never had a truly outstanding costume. My best idea was probably when I went as Jake from State Farm my senior year of high school. I’m excited to hear your Halloween stories, kind of like how you’re excited to take in these links.
