Every Hanukkah is special, and baby’s first Hanukkah is a milestone worth celebrating. It’s an ideal time to gather the people you love together and connect in a meaningful way.
Tonight we are having a party. Like so many other firsts, this is definitely party-worthy! Whether you choose to host a big bash or simply a small gathering of your closest friends and family, your baby’s first Hanukkah is a sweet, can’t-miss occasion perfect for getting everyone together to celebrate the holiday.
Traditional Hanukkah colors are blue, white, gold and silver, and that gives you a lot of room for when it comes to choosing your plates, napkins and other party decor. Shimmering star-shaped ornaments add sparkle to the room.
Lighting the Menorah is one of the key items in any Hanukkah celebration. Every night for eight days, you’ll light a candle to commemorate the miracle of light. If you already have a menorah, great! Get that out ASAP for tonight and set it up in a prominent location.
One of the gifts that you can get for baby’s first Hannukah is a personalized onesie, romper or shirt that doubles as your baby’s party wear. Other fun Hanukkah gifts for babies include “My First Hanukkah” bibs, personalized rattles, a play menorah, Hanukkah menorah blocks or a special dreidel that your baby will play with for years to come.
Halloween is an annual celebration of renewal. The meaning of Halloween is all about the inherent potential all life holds for us. It is a profound moment in which we can transform darkness by pointing ourselves into the direction of our own guiding lights.
The meaning of Halloween solidifies the presence of great transition in our midst. Our ancestors could instinctually feel shifts within nature, and so they anticipated internal shifts within spirit, mind and body too.
Halloween was and still is a landmark way to embrace the changes in our lives and prepare ourselves to meet amazing transformation in the months that lay ahead.
There is more to the symbolic meaning of Halloween than how much candy we get at the end of the night. It is a sacred holiday that originated from some very cool ancient people. Before the days of grocery stores, people had to provide for themselves. Halloween is a time of harvesting those provisions, and celebrating the bounty of the earth.
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!!

National Breadstick Day recognizes the delicious goodness of dunkable pieces of warm enjoyment.
Breadsticks come in many forms. They can be soft or crunchy. Breadsticks can be flavored with garlic, onion, salt or cheese. They can also be sweetened with cinnamon and sugar.
They often accompany Italian meals. Pair them with pasta covered in alfredo or marinara sauces. Add them to a soup, if you prefer, enjoy them with your salad. The aroma of fresh-baked breadsticks warm a home and improve every meal.
When it comes to dipping sauces, breadsticks satisfy just about everyone at the table. Restaurants and home cooks offer up cheesy, herbed and spicy sauces for dipping. If you can’t decide, order extra and try them all!
Today invite family and friends over for a beautiful meal and add breadsticks to the menu.
What are your favorite kinds?
Happy Friday #NationalBreadstickDay
Healthy for the Holidays!

The sixth annual CONTACT in the DESERT 2018 has exciting new changes this year with a new amazing venue at Renaissance Indian Wells Resort and Spa with a fascinating line-up of speakers. With a highly active night sky and sacred land, it’s no surprise that we attract our ET friends yet again, this year. Saturday late night had desert views of the Milky Way which was spectacular!
Like-minded people have come together from all over the world in this intimate gathering to explore the science of UFO’s and extraterrestrial life, ancient aliens, human origins, crop circles, government disclosure, UFO sightings, interplanetary living, contact experiences, and the need to know.
It has been an experiment with new ways to describe the relationship to our extraterrestrial friends of the past and present without encouraging fear. We’ve studied the symbols and signs of sacred sites, and have met cutting-edge speakers, scientists, and explorers excited to share their knowledge.
This year CONTACT in the DESERT added more forums, a 360 Dome experience, new Monday Intensives, additional experience’s lounge, a special Star Saturday night event, as well as a chance to join in the Night Vision Fieldwork gathering and so much more! This year many have embraced the ever-expanding, vibrant, international community of friends old and new, who have all united with one common goal – the need to know.
Thank you to CONTACT in the DESERT and to the fellow beings participating in this wonderful event.
love, k ❤
