My One Word for 2016

You know how everyone talks about making a “New Year’s resolution”? Well…if you know this, then you know that it also doesn’t take long for this “resolution” to become a whispering memory in the back of your head… A few years ago, I came across this blog post which changed the way I thought about New Year’s resolution. Crystal talks about how she chooses just one word which becomes her mantra for that year and how it’s much easier to stick to it because it’s just one…

6 Things I Learned from Boutique Shows

Being that Hanuka Boutique show season has just ended, I thought I’d share some things on how I tackle these shows. 1. Greet everyone with a smile Smiling is FREE! Besides for that, wouldn’t you want to talk to someone who has a happy face on instead of someone who looks bored, indifferent or unwelcoming? To give a hello and welcoming face to whoever walks by your table can go a long way. They may or may not be your customer, but they’ll walk away…

When life happens

My gosh has life been happening! There is so much to talk about that I don’t even know where to start. I could talk about how our summer went, with our second year of “mommy & me camp” round-robin. (It went spectacular in case you were wondering!) Then there are the holidays and back to school days, which flew by before I could even realize… And of course, there has been much excitement with the release of the #mydayplanner (have you seen it on Instagram?). Things…

A Pesach Lesson

I was at a friend’s house today. We were talking while the kids played in the basement. My friend was making dinners to put in the freezer for Chol Hamoed, which I thought was such a good idea. (at the time of this writing I still do!) As I watched her go about her way in the kitchen, I started feeling like I was not doing something right. After all, it’s the week of Pesah and I still have to clean my kitchen and do…

Snow Day

Yesterday was a snow day. Yeah, you could say that again. In less than five minutes, the roads and cars were completely covered! Amazing!! Ever since becoming a mother, I quickly transformed from the girl who loved getting all dressed up and playing in the snow to learning the joys of watching the snow fall…from the inside. (Can anyone relate?) Perhaps that’s why I surprised myself yesterday. As I was watching the big gorgeous snow flakes falling, I thought, maybe I should go outside with the…
