I’ve typically used my blog for deep, thoughtful posts and meaningful experiences. But I’ve realized that it’s fun to share cool finds and interesting tidbits as well. So, for today’s absolute fluff, I present you with four items from our recent trip that have made me smile. Two are self-indulgent items and two are for… Read More 4 Fun & Frivolous Finds
I love clothes. I’m not really interested in make-up (I figured that would happen when I grew up but….) or shoes or purses. But clothes. Oh, how I love buying fun, colorful outfits. I buy most of my clothes online, and I pride myself on finding amazing deals at places like Target, NewChic and Zulily. … Read More My Clothing Revolution
This article first appeared here. I love the video below created by IsraelLife about three roommates (wait until the end for the third!) making Guided Aliyah with Nefesh B’Nefesh. In today’s world of Israel-bashing college kids and Jews who are either scared to show their Jewishness or embarrassed by it, these are proud Jews and proud… Read More Can I Be My Own Hero?
Last night, we made plans to take all six kids out for their grades, but in the end, only three came with us (teenagers, they are so busy!) We went to Beit Hakivun, a restaurant we’ve never been to before. It’s on the bike path at the Old Train Station and we’ve walked by it… Read More Light Up the Night
As many of you know, I’m the main representative female of the species for my sons. Of course, they interact with other women and girls; but they get most of their understanding of how the whole girl world works from me. Talk about pressure. And I’m not the most girly-girl out there, so they know… Read More The Gel That Binds
We interrupt my typically heavy blog posts, and the meaningful ones, for something completely fluffy. Weeks ago, I came across an article about a company called Morf. They had an idea for a shirt that can be worn 24 different ways. Their Kickstarter campaign went through the roof, raising $131,089 for the project. This was… Read More Morf Your Way Into Fun Fashion
I barely slept on Saturday night and only managed to get about four hours of sleep. Some people can function on that little – I can’t. So Sunday morning when I woke up groggy and kvetchy Josh said, “So maybe you’ll take a nap this afternoon.” And I had to laugh. Who has time for… Read More The Nap That Wasn’t
It’s the morning after the party and we are all still on a high. Pictures coming soon. But here is my speech from last night. I would share Yehuda’s speech, but it’s in Hebrew! Enjoy mine… We feel very fortunate to find ourselves, ten and a half years after Aliyah, in a place filled with… Read More A Glimpse of the Snow-Mitzvah Fun!
This week we stayed in a cave. No, we didn’t turn into the Flintstones and decide to sleep on the ground with rocks for pillows. Far from it.Israel is so filled with out-of-the-way and truly unique finds. It’s one of the things that I simply relish. When I plan a family vacation in Israel, I… Read More A Modern Cave Woman
At least 15 years ago, I found one of my favorite articles of clothing. It’s a zip-up pair of footie pajamas. No – not for the kids or the babies – but for me. Now, I know these have become all the rage now, but they weren’t 15 years ago. And I had a pair.… Read More Batman Strikes..in His Footie Pajamas
