Rosh Hashanah New Year Cards

In secular society, January 1st is the official start of the new year but for Jewish people world wide, Rosh Hashanah marks the new year and new beginnings.  For me, Rosh Hashana is one of my very favorite Jewish holidays. It is generally celebrated in September or early October. We cannot give you an exact date since the Hebrew lunar calendar is only 354 days verses 365 days in the solar calendar so the days don't line up the same every year. For example, Rosh Hashana 2018 begins on the evening of September 9th whereas the next year the holiday starts on the evening of September 29, 2019. This often coincides with the onset of a new school year. Growing up, when we went back to school shopping we also picked up a new Fall outfit for the High Holidays.

S'mores Party Invitations

We love Instagram.  We check our feed first thing every morning and today we awoke to this festive end of summer party idea courtesy of Tiny Prints.  How fun would it be to send off summer with a toasty treat by setting up a stocked s'mores bar in your back yard!  We just happen to have a fire pit (or two) so we can't wait to invite friends over for s'more fun.  Although we did like these joyful herringbone party invitations (they are no longer available), in the end we actually prefer the more literal s'mores party invitations available on Minted so there is absolutely no confusion about what to expect – no dinner, no cocktails, simply s'mores. We are especially excited that among the Minted invitation offerings is one of their free online invitations (*free thru 12.31.17) Continue Reading →
