Way more treats than tricks

This weekend was super special. As usual Matt and I had planned to carve pumpkins for Halloween. We grab some B horror movies and celebrate Halloween with a few hours of attacking a big squash.

What I didn't know when I got to Matt's apartment this past Friday was that he'd taken the day off work and instead carved a pumpkin without me. He used reference pictures such as Captain Morgan, which is much funnier if you understand his love of rum and that because of that he's my pirate.

It was hidden under a microwave box on his table for a few hours before he finally revealed the surprise. He threw a coat over my head (leather, ugh, heavy!) and turned out all the lights and lit a candle. When he removed the coat this is what I saw:

It was amazing, so original and personalized, it fits our relationship perfectly. As of the 25th of last month we'd been dating for 5 years and 1 month but I guess we have a new anniversary now.

Hope your Halloween was amazing as well
