Our Halloween was very quiet. In a city still trying to get back on her feet after Hurricane Sandy, it hardly felt like a day for celebration. It was hard to wrap my head around handing out candy when almost the entirety of downtown Manhattan continues to be without power, water, food.
Mike walked home from the office last night, as subways were at a standstill and packed buses were stuck in heavy traffic. After dinner, I baked a fresh batch of Halloween Monster Cookies and we watched our favorite Halloween specials before calling it a night. Simple and sweet.
