Life has been really, really busy lately.
I've been making fall treats for the holidays:
Trying to get this one to eat food:
And even scrapping a bit when I can sneak away.
But in between all of the busy-ness, I've been thinking a lot.
Tomorrow night is the beginning of Yom Kippur, one of the holiest and most intense days of the Jewish calendar. There are a lot of explanations of what it means, but I like to say that it's a tax day for the soul. It's a day where we sit down and look at all the parts of ourselves, not just the bright, happy "facebook-ready" sides, but also the less presentable parts, the sharp comments and uncharitable thoughts.
The cool thing about Yom Kippur to me has always been the positivity underneath it. We don't address our wrongdoings because we're bad or flawed but because we know we can do better. This Yom Kippur, my first as a mother, I know I have a lot of growing to do. But I also feel so confident in the person I know I'm capable of becoming.
That's the great thing about potential. If you can go from this:
in seven months, how much can we grow in the next year?
Here's to a happy and healthy new year for everyone:)
And tell me, what are YOUR favorite fall treats?
