A Little Recent. Scrappiness



Made the two pages above this week.

The top page is about our first apartment in Philadelphia, where we lived from our marriage in December of '08 until May. In this little box of an apartment (really a little box--you had to walk through the bathroom to get from living room to bedroom) we had our first taste of married life, hosted our first Shabbos meals, and learned about each other and ourselves. We lived in West Philly across from a 7-11, and used the curtains in the photo to hide the neon signs! I was glad to move to a bigger place, but nostalgic about leaving our first home together.

The next page is about hair covering. For those of you who don't know, Orthodox Jewish women cover their hair when married. I wear scarves, wigs, bandanna-thingies, you name it. This page describes my feelings as I adjusted to this new routine.
