Hocus Pocus

CREDITS: Hocus Pocus by Newlife Dreams Designs; font is Windsong

Journaling: One of my favorite memories from this October is going to take photos with Mathew Butler, an old friend from high school. We stopped in Bagdad, FL and took pictures at an abandoned house. This is the front door of the house, which obviously hadn’t been opened in quite some time. We went to the back of the house to discover open doors, and when we heard noises coming from inside, we became convinced there was someone inside the house. Yes, we left in a hurry, laughing all the while. Thanks Mathew for a fantastic afternoon! It reminded me thatwhile high school was twenty years ago, you and I are almost exactly the same.
