Halloween was unseasonally cold down here which was surprising to say the least. I skipped my holiday festivities and ate (horrible) takeout Chinese food on the couch. Here is a key takeaway for you if you ever move down south from the northeast: don’t try to find good American-Chinese food takeout. You will just be frustrated by the fact that the fried rice doesn’t have eggs in it nor the lip-smacking taste of MSG. Pizza is a topic for another time.
Let me me rewind Charlotte for you to before Halloween. My camera was being tempermental, otherwise you would have gotten a post out much sooner.
Every weekend there is a tiny farmers market just outside of downtown (officially called uptown) Charlotte.
Right before Halloween most of the market comprised of pumpkins. I kept on telling myself that I would get a pumpkin but never actually did…. which was fine because I spared my apartment from the mess of pumpkin seeds and guts.
I love all the colours at the farmers market and it’s actually cheaper to buy produce there than the horrible Harris Teeter. Charlotte needs more grocery stores!
I really need to figure out the weather down here. I really can’t decide if it’s cold yet or not– my wardrobe is SO confused.
