    Airing My Dirty Laundry

      In this shocking video I expose the mess that I don’t want to face. My boys sleep three to a room and now their room has just gotten worse and worse. Oy! In the old days I would putter around their room every night and straighten up while I was putting them to sleep. That was before I had a job. I remember how when I walked into other people’s homes and saw the mess in their kids rooms,I […]

  • What it Feels Like to Paint the House.

    What it Feels Like to Paint the House.

        As we sat around the Shabbos table this Friday night it was like sitting in a new home. A wave of gratitude washed over me. The walls were freshly painted and all the corners of clutter cleared out. It’s actually been months now that we’ve been doing this painting. We thought it would take much shorter but instead it turned out to be a major life stage in itself. Our painter ( more on him in  my next post) […]

  • Letting Go

    Letting Go

    Today a friend shared with me some  wisdom borrowed from a Buddhist teaching. The topic was letting go, and it really stuck me deep in my core. As I listened to the simple words they resonated and vibrated deep within me and I recognized a power that I never knew that I had. The power to let go. Going through a transitional time myself it’s particularly poignant, but truly it’s relevant to all of us at all times: Here goes: He tells […]

  • Good Bye Wrapunzel

    Good Bye Wrapunzel

        Last night was Good Bye Wrapunzel night. Its a huge change but we are sure that  this will be the beginning of something incredible I can’t explain it in more profound terms, we just KNOW that despite the loss, everything is going to be amazing. In preparation for this new stage we’ve been fixing up our house. All those places (like our torn couches) that we had ignored while we were breathlessly busy were suddenly staring up at […]

  • My 20’s 30’s and 40’s

    My 20’s 30’s and 40’s

        Well, I have to admit – the title of this post is a bit misleading. I’m actually not in my 40’s yet. But I’m almost there… very close. The other day, my husband and I  were reflecting on life with my sister in law Tamar. She asked us where we’re at, and I began musing;” We’re like in our 40’s. You know,  In your 20’s you’re figuring out ‘who am I?’ In your 30’s, its all about ‘what am […]

    Gold and Sequins and Rustic Rainbows

      (Pictured here, Mommy in the orange shawl with 2 friends in Jerusalem)   I can’t just write about Mommy P, The P is for Perlman She gave me my name. I can’t just tell stories that will make your eyes shine and your heart soar She wouldn’t like that. Mommy likes the hidden world and the hidden words the unspoken messages of holiness and empathy and permission to be wrapped up in the olive dip and cashew spread offered […]

  • Touch – and It’s Magic

    Touch – and It’s Magic

        This post is about an extraordinary night. If this happened all the time I wouldn’t be writing about it. Like you, I’m generally in 6 places at once with barely enough time for basic life tasks. Please don’t get the wrong idea – I’m not mom of the year – I’m just really grateful. There are no pictures in this post. No pictures because what I’m sharing is such a sacred private moment with my children that I […]

  • Dear Diary,

    Dear Diary,

      Dear Diary, Dearest Blog Friends, Universe and Me, It’s been a long time (again!) since I’ve written and we have SO much to catch up on! I’m posting pictures here of the last few months! This past summer, you remember, was the summer of humbling heartache. My kids were struggling, my husband’s job ended and I was generally just treading water. BUT, do you remember just a bit before then, that I went to Israel? I went as a […]

  • Can G-d Grow Bread On Trees?

    Can G-d Grow Bread On Trees?

    Lech Lecha  are the words that were told to Abraham. “Lech lecha, go to yourself” when G-d sent him on a journey into the unknown. We read it not only as go to yourself, but, despite the hardship, go for yourself, for your own benefit.                                                                        […]
