October may have come and gone, but it was definitely a month to remember.
It was a month filled with visits from old friends, paired with opportunities to make new ones, and lots of fun along the way.
We all know October's biggest holiday is Halloween, and for me it's always a toss up about how I end up celebrating.
With work demands, weeknight holidays tend to get overlooked, so this year I took full advantage of my days off falling right in line with the 31st.
My friends invited me to one of the coolest parties I've every been to.
Not only was the company great and the food delicious, but this household really captured the essence of Halloween.
It was my first time there, but I was told that this event gets bigger and bigger every year.
More than 1,500 trick-or-treaters stop by this house in Raleigh's Historic Oakwood neighborhood for a few spooks and handfuls of candy.
I could tell families came from all over the area just to check it out and have a fun, safe, friendly place to enjoy the holiday we all remember as kids.
Everyone talks about coming together, and on this night I saw first hand what a community can do.
Just a few friendly neighbors with BIG hearts was all it took to bring thousands together.
Imagine what would happen if more communities came together like this.
