Hey my sweets,
Last night was the first night of Hanukkah so Paigey, Jadey and I hosted a little family holiday dinner at our house. It was kind of last minute, but here are some pics! Our menu was: salad, steak, roasted potatoes, roasted cauliflower, corn succotash, potato latkes, and tonssss of desserts! Everyone is all over the place so it was nice to get everyone all together. When we were younger we used to pick names and do a gift exchange so we decided to reinstate that tradition this year! Wouldn’t you like to know who I got?!?!? Can’t tell yaaaa! Happy Hanukkah to all my peeps! xoxo, Whit

Hey my sweets,
Happy Hanukkah everyone!!!!!!!! I hope all of my fellow Jews had a wonderful first night and celebrated by stuffing their faces with latkes, brisket, gelt and other Hanukkah goodies. Everyone has their own Hanukkah traditions and memories, which is one thing that makes this holiday so special. For me, I am immediately reminded of how my mom used to line up EVERY menorah. We all made them when we were little so she would put them all out on the counter so there would seven menorahs in a row, one for each Port :)
What are you favorite Hanukkah traditions?
Happy Hanukkah my fellow Jews!!! Hannukah is one of my favorite holidays, not because of the presents or the latkahs or the brisket or the dreidel spinning or the gelt but because it symbolizes how important family truly is. I remember when I was younger reporting back and forth with all of my friends what we got each night, I was living in a dream world. But now all I can really ask for is to simply be with my family. I know I may sound like a corn-dog but take this time to reach out to those who mean the most to you. I think now more than ever hand-writing a card, framing a picture or simply verbalizing the worth of your loved ones are the best gifts one can get.
