What I'm thankful for this Jewish New Year is written in partnership with South Shore Fine Linens
Being that we are beginning a brand new year (sure it’s a Jewish New Year- but as far as I’m concerned any reason to pop open a bottle of wine and eat cake should be cause for celebration for all of mankind’s creatures)I thought it would be appropriate to jot off What I'm thankful for this Jewish New Year.
In this very moment- I am healthy and have a husband who understands the value of a TV in a marriage here is What I'm thankful for this Jewish New Year..
What I'm thankful for this Jewish New Year
Kids and two dogs who are 98 percent potty trained. I say 98 percent becasue when we dropped off the boys at my sister's house she found an unexpected surprise in her bedroom. Really this I count as one of my greatest achievements as a mother- the fact that I got two kids ( and dogs)– to learn how to use the potty.
No my dog doesn’t actually sit on a toilet- but you get the gist! Having a diaper-free life – where I don’t have to worry about forgetting to take one with me- and thus need to resort to using a makeshift paper towel one instead on a toddler who has just majorly pooped his pants – well it’s just plain liberating.
Coffee. Really need I say more—it is the sweet nectar of the gods and the spring in my step- the reason I manage to drag myself out of bed every morning at the crack of 5;30 am, to make PB&J sandwiches for my son- and smile sweetly at him, when he spills his almond milk all over his Stuyvesant sweatshirt, as my husband honks at our front door to make sure he doesn't miss the ferry to Manhattan.

Nutella. Apparently it is now considered almost as healthy a spread as peanut butter, being that it’s mostly comprised of hazelnuts. Truly a spoonful a day 9 Okay sometime a few a day)- is akin to that peppermint patty feeling of being taken away to a small café in Brussels, as I spread it on a biscotti (well at least in my head).

The brand new Chabad of The North shore. y'all i wish every member of the tribe could experience chabad. i wanted to do an fb live of Chabad North shore's rosh hashana service but since I couldn't take my word for it that YOU ARE WELCOME THERE in every sense of the word. and if you are a jew in any way shape or form Ya need to stop by and say hi 👋
SpongeBob Square Pants. Finally a cartoon that I can sit through more than five minutes of, without quietly trying to slip out of the room without my kids realizing. SpongeBob’s earnest goodness truly makes me want to be a better person and rid myself of my cynicism. It might just be the best sitcom on television.
And of course Rosh Hashanah. A holiday that sanctions eating yourself silly with no one passing any judgment on you—rather people continually asking if you’d like them to heap another serving of potato kugel on your plate. I mean really what can possibly be better than that!
Happy new year!
