Resting Witch Face

Good Morning! . 

A little background story:  My parents have been married for over 48 years. When they met, my mom was 16 and the captain of the Sacred Heart Color Guard and my dad was 19 and marched for the world champion drum and bugle corps, The Boston Crusaders.  Through the years, my brother, sister and I have heard countless tales of how they met, and nostalgic accounts of their glory days of marching.  My father now 71 serves on the Board of Trustees for the Crusaders and it is still a very big part of their lives.  Between fundraising and competitions, it seems they are frequently and happily attending Crusaders events throughout the year.     
In the late sixties when they marched it was often what city kids did in order to stay off the streets and out of trouble. Most of the corps were broken down by parts of the city, and or church parish.  
Now these drum and bugle corps and color guards have auditions and accept kids from all over. They are gone the entire summer competing across the country. Every year they try to out do the year before, and this year they chose the theme of the Salem with trials.  It was fabulous! Of course my parents followed them to many competitions as they won top ranking in most.  Along with fundraising, the corps raises money through their merch. My dad got my mom and I these adorable and completely appropriate tees, boy he knows us so well.   

In addition to the tee being perfect for the Halloween season with it's witchy saying,  the cut and fabric are just so fabulous and comfy!   I can not believe that Halloween is Tuesday! I have always loved getting dress up for Halloween, not only on the day, but being festive through out October.

I hope you all have an amazing weekend and hopefully attending a Halloween party or two!

xx, Elise
