B-M is done!

Okay, I am really, really exhausted. But I do remember some guests telling me, "Oh, this is so nice. We've been to so many obnoxious ones. This is not obnoxious." Oh, please. LaMai doesn't do obnoxious. We just did a religious Jewish coming-of-age ceremony in a former brothel (and simultaneously raised money for Kids With Cameras/the Born Into Brothels kids). Folks who I never thought would show up, actually did.

We lifted A on a chair. I've never seen him smile so big.

That is all for now.

Mazel tov!

I'll be attending my first Bat Mitzvah in August and I'm looking forward to the experience. The mother is already choosing the flowers for her yard in the colors of the celebration part hosted at her home.

Thank you, everyone.

I finally am back and ready to post something non-BM related. The bills for this thing had my head spinning, and believe me, we did everything on a modest scale.

I did some crying over the amount of money it took to do this, actually. Primarily because A's father contributed zippo to it. Sigh.

One day. One day...
