Although I love flowers, frills and romance, I am always intrigued by the macabre. Every once in a while, I trade my pink dress for a black one. I love fall, when all the colors turn, and the trees turn creepy, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and I hope to live in an old “haunted looking” Victorian house one day. I was at a parade this weekend, and I saw the coolest old horse drawn hearse. If I weren’t getting cremated, I would totally want to ride in one of those to my burial. There is a city in Kansas where some of my relatives lived at one point, called Atchison. It is supposedly the most haunted city in America. They have haunted trolley tours that look so fun, and they even have a haunted tea party. I tell you what, one day I am going to drive thirteen hours and spend the night in Atchison, and do all the haunted activities just for the chills and tummy butterflies. I’m so excited to see where my relatives used to live, and check out all the cool old houses there. Have any of you ever been to Atchison? Do you have any real life ghost stories? Please share in the comments.
