BH, We recently welcomed another bundle of joy into our lives. She came a little over a month early, but thank G-d, she has surpassed expectations of a late preemie.
With this new addition to our family has also come the lack of sleep (although BH not nearly as bad as with our first). Also a very different busy schedule that has consisted mostly of breastfeeding and pumping.
Although I think about writing all the time, I’ve also been at a loss of coming up with ideas for writing.
But that’s the beauty of a blog, isn’t it? You can write about the exciting and the ordinary. Not every post has to be ground breaking and mind shattering. Although I suppose just by writing SOMETHING it can turn into something extraordinary.
So I’m going to challenge myself to write something every week. No matter how small or odd it may seem to me. So buckle your seatbelts kids and enjoy the ride.
Just received another Stitch Fix and this time the requirements I had for the clothes they sent me included: They needed to be modest (or the ability to wear a shirt underneath), comfy, and something that will grow with me a bit during this pregnancy.
Well, while I do miss the smell of a pine tree and the sight of the twinkle lights, there are other ways to get that fix. I bought a candle and I hung some twinkle lights for Hanukkah. I’m good!
After the tragic event of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, we all mourned the loss of the individuals who were brutally killed solely because they were Jewish. The question of “is anti-semitism rising in America” haunted and continues to haunt us all.
I was inspired to write about why I love being a Jew, and why I am proud to be called a Jew.
My article is in the latest issue of Nashim Magazine, please go check it out and make sure to share.
Sometimes the world seems so dark and the future so bleak.
It feels like we are so small and the rest of the world will overlook every truth and everything we do right just to say we are wrong. They will side with our enemies. No matter how much pain and suffering they cause, no matter how horrible their true essence is.
But while I was feeling pretty down about this cold and depressing truth, I realized that Hanukkah is coming up. And I wonder, what it must have been like for the Jewish people who lived during that time.
In a press release issued Monday, November 19, Airbnb announced that it is removing listings “in Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank [Judea and Samaria] that are at the core of the dispute between Israelis and Palestinians.”
This only applies to Jewish communities, not Palestinian ones. While national conflicts exist all over the world, Airbnb chose to implement this very anti-semitic policy specifically.
What about the Palestine communities that Israeli citizens are not even allowed to enter?
Winter is on the way, with its cold hands of death and its dreary demeanor. While staying warm on the couch all day with a blanket and a warm cup of coffee sounds amazing, it is, unfortunately, not always possible. And as much as I’d like to crank the heater up to 75, my husband would not like that much and neither would our bank account.
Even if it’s not winter, I’m always cold. My toes, hands, nose. It’s ridiculous. I remember playing soccer as a kid and not being able to zip up my coat because my hands were so cold they were numb. So I thought I’d look into it a bit and see what suggestions are out there. Here are the best ones.
The days are getting shorter and the weather is getting colder. Family movie night has once again become a weekly thing in our house. Typically on Sundays when motivation is low. If you’re like me, you will end up spending too much time on Netflix just looking for a perfect movie for family night. There is so much content on Netflix but the algorithm shows you what it thinks you want to watch. Which can occasionally make it difficult to navigate. Well, there’s a hack that will save you lots of time and help you find the right movie that the whole family can enjoy. Continue reading
