6 months! It's amazing how time flies

Today marks Brad and my six month anniversary of marriage. It's truly amazing how time flies. I am so lucky to have you in my life Brad and I look forward to celebrating many more anniversaries to come. Thank you for loving me for me, helping me be a better person, being an incredible support system and the best husband a girl could ask for.
I love you with all my heart

Put on your yarmulke it's time for Hanukkah!

While the much of the world, and most of the BCS, is getting ready for Christmas, a few of us are celebrating a lesser known minor holiday known as Hanukkah. For those less familiar with the holiday, here's a little background...

Why is it perceived that Hanukkah is a major holiday when it's really not? Because of timing of course! Hanukkah, because of its proximity to Christmas, has been grandfathered into the trifecta of Holiday celebrations, i.e: Christmas, New Years, and Hanukkah (and sometimes Kwanza). In my opinion, fesitvus should also be included, because what's better than a holiday that is "for the rest of us?" 

So, here's to all of my fellow Jews and honorary hebrews. Happy Hanukkah and many more from the Krugel clan. May the warmth and glow of each candle you light make your heart and home happy and your Hanukkah bright It's the Festival of Lights! Shalom - Peace to you at Hanukkah and always. 

And of course, the "unofficial" theme song(s) of Hanukkah...

About Me

For those of you who know me, writing has always been one of my passions, with the exception of my Masters or any ridiculously long testament within the wide world of Academia. I've only had the pleasure of blogging a couple of times, mostly for a few classes in graduate school, but figured it was time to organize my numerous thoughts and musings with all of you out there in cyber land. I created this page because my mind is always running and often times my thoughts get lost in the hubub. Plus, my friends have always said that I'm a great storyteller, so I'd love to share them now with you. In the meantime, I'll leave you with this... Throughout the past 33 years of my life I've seen, heard, and experienced so many different things as well as had many adventures and dream of so many possibilities. But in short, what it comes down to is this..I'm just a little Jubana trying to make a difference in the world. Everyday I live my life to the fullest and have fun doing it. Life can't always be about work or how much money you make. There's so much more to life than that.
