I stumbled upon this tag somewhere (I don't even remember where), and it seemed both fun and perfect for the month of October! I didn't actually set out to do a bunch of Halloween-themed posts this month, but I follow try to follow my blogging whims, so here we are.

So whether you're already a die-hard vampire fan or are just a fan of good...
