I just looked at the date, and realized we are halfway through March, and I haven’t even finished blogging about February, yet. March has already been a very fun month for me, as I just got back from spending a few personal days in Atlanta, and had such a great time.
When I came back from the Puerto Rico Interfaith wedding, I quickly got ready for Leah’s Bat Mitzvah. I have a friend who tutors children, and they were looking for someone to officiate the Jewish ceremony, so we worked as a team together. It was really enjoyable, and the family was so much fun to work with. The Bat Mitzvah was held on a Saturday evening, so we held a Havdalah service, which seems to be super popular these days. It happens to be my favorite Bat Mitzvah service, because I love including the contemporary Havdalah music and including everyone in the song and ceremony. What great fun! Leah did a great job, as did her sister, who also chanted from the Torah. It was a beautiful night!
Just before the Bat Mitzvah, I spent a few personal days in Orlando as well, and saw my newest favorite musician, Matt Shenk. He’s so awesome, and his music is at the top of my “most played” list in Itunes. He is a master guitar player, has an awesome voice, and his words are so relatable! Check him out at www.mattshenk.com.
Last week, I had the pleasure of officiating the Interfaith wedding of Micha and Sam. I don’t have pics yet, so I am saving the blog story, but they were so adorable, I just had to mention them here. One of the youngest Interfaith couples I have married, they are also one of the most mature. I can’t wait for them to get back from their honeymoon, so I can hear how their first week of marriage went!
This weekend, I am performing the Interfaith wedding ceremony for Annie & Greg. Annie is working incredibly hard at pulling off her wedding on a tight budget, and I think she has done an amazing job. I can’t wait to see the result of her efforts.
I am also performing a Baby Naming for Mason and Emily, Sage and Jonah. This is the couple I wrote about last week, titled, A Baby Naming, For all the right reasons…I can’t wait for this beautiful event, and to meet these two lucky little boys.
Trevor is home, and in between, I’m going to try to spend as much time as possible with him. It’s a busy month, and I am so blessed to be so busy! And I count those blessings, every day…
