Jules Header

Two pages from a Moleskine journal, letter is in black pen. Doodles include one ghost asking “Do I look like a sperm?”, another ghost answering “Yes” with an unimpressed expression; the second page has a ghost peeking onto the page with HAPPY HALLOWEEEEEN! in big, orange letters. The letter reads:

Dear Jules,

Hey! How are you? Are you ready for Halloween? I’m currently in a bit of a panic because I need a costume for this coming Friday… and I have $0. Cool. My options are looking like Wednesday Addams… or a cat. I’m usually the sort to have 800 costume ideas (I think about it all year), but I’m just not Feeling It this year… 😦 My youngest brother (Macen, 8) has a school party, though, and of course I’ll be in spirit!

Anyway, today is Monday (the worst) and my husband works late, so I think I’ll decorate before he comes home. 🙂 I have some things from last year to get feeling a little more festive/spooky.

I think I’m not into it this year because I’m stressed out about money. I have no idea what gifts we can afford, and I take gift-giving very seriously. (Other than my Harry Potter knowledge, it’s the only thing I get competitive about.) I dunno, I’m sure it’ll work out, but things are currently a mess.

I hope your autumn and Halloween are going beautifully! And I hope you’ve started on your holiday shopping. Best of luck, Jules!

  1. Awh thank you so much for taking the time to write to me! I really appreciate it! I’m also very excited for Halloween, and don’t worry I still don’t have a costume either. Yikes! Hopefully we can pull something together by next week hahaa. I know how stressful this time of year can be, especially the closer we get to Christmas, but I hope all goes well for you. I’m sure you’ll find some banging (that feels weird for me to say, but I kinda like the sound of it lol) gifts for you friends and family! Lots of love! 💜

    1. It was my pleasure! I love getting to write to people, and your Halloween posts inspired me. 🙂 I was thinking about doing a post about cheap/easy last minute costumes, but it might be ~too last minute for me to write that, haha. Anyway, best of luck to you! We can pull it all together. Things have a way of working themselves out. 🙂 💜 xxx


  2. Love to read your writing, & see your sketches.
    Sweetie, no need to purchase anything for me; I’m sure Auntie Betsy would agree. We spend time together! That’s the best gift available! (And saves others’ budgets, too!)
    I have a really old pirate girl costume in the basement… & maybe a few others… Want to stop after work this week to look?

    1. Auntie Betsy does agree! We were just talking about this yesterday, haha. 🙂 And Jonny and I figured out costumes! It shouldn’t really surprise anyone, but I’m not going to give it away until I post photos. ❤ xxxx
