We made it through a successful Shavuos! It was a long week, but we did it. We definitely had enough food, and although I definitely missed the cheesecake, I didn’t miss the extra calories.
We kept the kids busy and our days organized, which even gave me some time to myself each evening to read. Imagine that!
In the end, I’m really glad I got to spend quality time with my family in my own home. Planning and making yom tov took a lot of time, but was an exciting new adventure and I think it will get easier each year. I do wish we would’ve been able to have some company over, but with working full-time I’m glad I didn’t over-extend myself.
How was your Shavuos?
Until next time,
