Birthday #28 😇💜 Baruch Hashem Baruch Hashem! Gloria a Dios, Gloria a Dios! Soy realmente bendecida. Dios es bueno y el honra a los que le honran. A mis 28 años estoy exactamente donde debo estar y eso me llena de alegría. 😊✨
Happy New Year!! 🎊 This past year was filled with so many changes, big and small. Some of the bigger ones including my boyfriend and I moving in together, my parents packing up and moving out to Texas and my sister going off to college in Paris! My family has always been extremely close, so needless to say it was really nice to get everyone back together again over the holidays! This was also the reason for the radio silence over here... I was doing my best to be fully present and to soak in as much family time as I could before we went our separate ways again for a few months. But, I’m back! And I have been working on a couple surprises/announcements that I’m excited to be rolling out and sharing with you in the next few weeks! So definitely stay tuned for those! But in the meantime, I want to hear from you guys! What are some of your goals/plans for 2019??
I have never had a Christmas tree - for good reason - being brought up in Jewish household. I never coveted one but have always loved candles and all the festivals of light at this time of year. After eight years of having a home together @cookefawcett made us this reuseable plywood one and it is creating great delight as our toddler insists we sing 'happy birthday' or 'happy hannukah' every time we light the candles. This is the making of a new cross-cultural tradition. (The purple light in the background is our neighbour's karaoke shed.) Happy festivities one and all. . . . #reducereuserecycle#tealights#happybirthday#happyhanukkah#plywoodchristmastree#cookefawcett
Danas judaistički vjernici pale šestu svijeću na svijećnjaku zvanom hanukija. Hanukija ima devet svijeća - jedna je glavna. Osmoga dana pali se posljednja svijeća i tada je blagdan Hanuka. Ona podsjeća na događaj iz 167. g. pr.n.e. kada su Makabejci digli ustanak protiv kralja Antioha Epifana, koji im je oskvrnuo hram, najveću svetinju. Makabejci su uspjeli vratiti hram i ponovo ga posvetiti. Tada je po predaji bilo ulja samo za jedna dan, ali svijeća je gorjela osam dana. Stoga je Hanuka nazvana i blagdanom svjetla. Ima razne običaje, a jedan je i okretanje zvrka zvanog drajdl. Na slikama su razne hanukije: s Trga, iz Muzeja za umjetnost i obrt u Zagrebu koje izlažu hanukije iz Češke i Ukrajine iz 19. stoljeća te iz Vilniusa u Litvi, također od prije 150-tak godina, a posljednje tri iz Izraela. #hanukija#hanuka#ханукия חנוכייה# #chanukiah#hanukkiah#ханука#חנוכה חנוכה# #happyhanukkah
“We need a little Christmas”. Did some impromptu decorating this evening with my first tree! Using only mementos, souvenirs and various Knick knacks from my room, I did my best to don my tree in gay apparel. Spot the homemade snow (who knew you could have a white Christmas in San Diego!?), Cateye glasses, wand, flowers, equality flag, lapel pin, scarf, and pearl jewelry on the tree. And around it traditional Hanukkah gelt (gold coins), and underneath, my wizard of oz ornament, and my Mary Poppins umbrella head, resting on yet another scarf. And topped with a vintage hat given to me for my 16th birthday by @emmastees and @reecegbrind. All done while playing Waitress and Christmas carols in the background. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas Darlings! ❤️🎄❤️ *kinky boots keychain added near top of tree after picture. #christmastree#firstchristmastree#weneedalittlechristmas#christmastree🎄 #christmasdecor#christmasdecorations#happyhanukkah#merrychristmas
