Happy Last Day Of Hanukkah
Can you believe December is almost over? It feels like the holiday season came and went in a flash and that the last day of Hanukkah was here in the blink of an eye! It usually feels pretty long, with all the same songs on the radio and commercials getting you in the spirit (see my post about what it is like to be Jewish on Christmas). But this year it went by really quickly for me. Probably because days fly by with the baby.
This year’s Hanukkah has been one that I’ll cherish for the rest of my life. Getting to share it with Sidney and seeing our traditional through here eyes is incredibly fun. We spent the time with both sets of her grandparents, which was so special. It was a long road trip, but SO worth it. On the day we drove back to Cleveland from DC, Dan said to Sidney, “you got to be held by all four of your grandparents today!” and it made me feel so emotional. Not many people can say they were held by all four grandparents in one lifetime. But this little girl got to be held by all four grandparents in A SINGLE DAY! She is so adored and lucky to be surrounded by constant love.
The photos today are a little peek inside our Hanukkah home. I bring out our Hanukkah banner every year and our Menorahs (we have a few, here’s why). With Sidney around, I traded in my fun poofy skirt for cozier digs like leggings and sweaters. This star sweater is festive, but I like that it doesn’t scream “holiday”. I can still wear it for the rest of the winter.
