My Jewish Mommy Life  ✡️ Jewish 💕 Minimalist Mom 🤰 YouTuber 📷! #JewishMom #YouTubeMom #Minimalist What to Expect at a Jewish Wedding 💐👰 🎩 ⬇️

I have a slightly embarrassing story to share this morning from my childhood. Growing up I thought "poverty" meant homelessness, or like child starving in Asia or Africa - and I had no concept that there was a continuum of wealth or need. I vividly remember the first time I met a girl who told me she hadn't ever been to Disneyland because her parents couldn't afford it. This was totally mind blowing for me (embarrassing I know!) - I grew up in an insular community and just had zero understanding that you could live in a home and have clothes to wear to school but still not have money for some things. So when @Flashlightpress offered to send me a copy of #MaddisFridge I eagerly said YES! I think it's really important to share with our children the idea that you don't need to go to the food bank or homeless shelter to do a #mitzvah, that there are people within our own community who need our help. Although my son was more interested in the beautiful pictures in this book then these big life lessons, I know it will grow with him and will expand his worldview. If you're looking for a good story with some #teachablemoments I recommend checking it out!

It’s summertime, love (and perspiration) is in the air and that means...it’s wedding season 💕👰💐🤵💕! I have a new video up on my channel all about what you can expect to experience as a guest at a #jewishwedding ✡️ so if you’re invited to one this summer and haven’t been before or are just looking for some inspo on all things Jewish related for your own wedding planning then check that link in the bio! I also shared some footage from my own wedding 🎩 💞👰 nearly....5 YEARS!!! ago (whaaaaaat where did life go?!). I have been to a lot of Jewish weddings and between the food and the #horah they’re pretty much my favorite thing ever. I also LOVE non-Jewish weddings and learning about how other cultures celebrate all things love. It’s been a while since I was planning my own wedding so this video was a fun trip back down memory lane. Enjoy!

It’s Tuesday, find your nearest tent and hide in it. #justme 😔? I’ve been in survival mode and listening to Harry Potter on Audible in the evenings and it’s literally the only book I’ll ever reread (or re-listen to) but it just has such a powerful way of making all the troubles of #adulting disappear. Anyone else have a book 📚 like that? Anyone else only like summer for a week and then want to hide from the sun ☀️? #noinspirationalquote #toohotforhashtags

Welcome to the summer! ☀️💙☀️ This is our family’s fifth year heading to the Massachusetts coast for one weekend each summer and it’s one of the few traditions we have like this. In a way it marks time and how life changes in between each visit. The little shops and old boats on the rocky harbors remain the same, but we are always different when we see them. Looking forward to a relaxing #Shabbat by the sea 🌊 💙. #ShabbatShalom

Very excited to share my blog post about our California 💙🚙💙 road trip today on my website (link in bio myjewishmommylife.com), if anyone is planning something similar and is curious to see our itinerary and the best stops we made down the coast from San Francisco to Los Angeles, the best of which I have to say was #BigSur of course for views like this one! I've also posted a 'How to Survive a Road Trip with a Toddler' on my YouTube channel if you need any tips for summer plans coming up! #takemeback

The minimalism journey continues! Although I haven’t purchased any new makeup 💋💄 yet this year (aside from one replacement mascara) I still had a super cluttered makeup drawer and it was really slowing down my morning routine and I felt guilty every time I opened it and saw things I had spent 💵 on that I wasn’t using. I saw how lovely @ashlynne.eaton’s single palette was and was INSPIRED to do some depotting and decluttering of my own! As this #yearofless goes by I want my space to feel more beautiful and more like me, and today was one step closer to reaching that goal. Check the link in my bio to see the final decluttered #makeupcollection
Anyone decluttering this weekend?!?!! What should I tackle next?!

There’s a new appreciation of an ancient Jewish value #treatyoself ! Self-love 💕 and self-care 💕are core components of Judaism ✡️ - because after all we are all created in the image of God - b’tzelem Elohim. #Selfcare may seem like a clichéd hashtag these days, but so many many women put themselves last and care for everyone else first.

As Jews we’ve been told to rest, relax and take care of ourselves since the beginning - it’s called Shabbat! A divinely ordained order to take a break from all the stress and stimulation of life and just BE. After a 10 day #Shabbat from life (i.e. a vacation) on our road to trip to California 💙🚙💙 I have found the return to normalcy a bit abrupt and annoying. I miss spending all day with my family, I miss hiking in nature instead of only exercising my fingers at a keyboard. I don't live to work, I work to live so I am #workingfortheweekend and #waitingforshabbat on this #humpday. Hope you all are having a lovely week!

PS - If you want to see what we packed for my toddler’s carryon for this great adventure the link is in my bio ⬆️

“Those that truly love, have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two”. So, we are home 🏡 again and I’m always amazed and thankful about how a traveling adventure makes me feel closer to those I’ve traveled with. Of course it’s partially the beautiful parts of Earth 🌎 you get to see for yourself 🌄🌅🏞, but it’s also the panicked moments at the airport when you can’t find your tickets right before you board ✈️, stepping out of my comfort zone and crossing thousands of miles reminds me home is where my family is, not where my house is. ❤️✈️❤️
So onto the next destination!!! 💕🌎💕
What’s your favorite ever place you’ve visited?!??? Tell me about somewhere wild and wonderful!

Well it’s #Shabbat and to me that means it’s time to take a little break. Our last days in California this trip are being spent with our family and that’s a break from our vacation cocoon but I think it’s the best way to bookend the experience and it’s the actual reason we flew here in the first place. We’re spending Shabbat with my parents who have a fully #kosher home so of course we stopped at 🍔🍟🥤 @innout first (though I got a burger without the burger 😂). Usually we land at LAX and get In n Out twenty minutes after landing so it’s been a long wait. #ShabbatShalom y’all!

Today we saw two pishies and a silly otter, according to Max. According to me we saw an incredible amount of the most beautiful sea creatures 🐙🦑🦐🦀🐡🐠🐟🐬🦈 I’ve ever gotten up close to at the @montereybayaquarium. The deep sea tanks and jelly fish exhibits were my favorite because they were quiet and mesmerizing. We got there before the aquarium opened (see my last post about early mornings...) and felt like we had the place to ourselves the whole first hour. When we planned this trip I knew we wanted to hike and be in nature each day so I was hesitant to buy tickets for this, but wow am I happy we did it. I think it was Max’s favorite experience of the trip so far and I think we will be hearing about all the fishies we saw for many days to come.

Our hiking ❤️🚙 California adventure continued with the trails of #PointLobosStateReserve and some thoughts about traveling with a toddler. We’ve been at every State Park almost at sunrise just as they open and it’s resulted in an almost private hiking experience in what would otherwise be a busy time of year. And the early morning crisp cold air from the sea breeze has kept us cool and energized. I know it wouldn’t be this way if it wasn’t for Max and his preference for East Coast time. I’ve thought about what we’ve missed by being on a toddler’s schedule and all I’ve come up with is wine 🍷 tasting? But compared to being on this adventure with Max and seeing it all through his eyes, I wouldn’t trade it for the world 🗺. .

Hiking California continues today with a gorgeous walk around the beaches of Big Sur and then a drive 🚙 across the famous Bixby Bridge and onwards to the coast of Carmel by the Sea 🌊 (which the baby slept through all of). We’ve tried to plan all our longer drives during nap time which has mostly worked out thankfully. Then we soothed our tired selves with the most delicious ice cream from @carmel_bakery and I fell asleep before 9. #itsvacationtime .
