Happy International Women’s Day, everyone!

Because it is always important to celebrate and honor the women in our lifes and around us, 

Happy International Women’s Day, everyone!

‘Cause the world would suck without us.

And also, Purim Sameach!!!

This photo is floating around the Jewish Blogosphere and I absolutely love it. Purim is the “Jewish Halloween” when it is a mitzvah to get extremely drunk- even for the Orthodox. Yeeehaw. This photo is taken from the men’s side of the Western Wall in Jerusalem, Israel. It is so full of win.

    Interesting picture!

    You from Israel?

    • From here? No, just another American trying to speak some version of Hebrew. 😉

        I thought it was interesting that IWD fell on Purim this year, the “hero/main character” of the story is a woman after all.

        Sort of fitting eh?

        By the way, as a American, what do you think of Israel and the current events that surround this tiny nation? Would like to hear your view on all that.

        • All that politics talk is something I try to navigate away from here, since it is very hard to do that in every facet of life when you live here. I hope you won’t mind me answering as such.

    Great post. Good on you for celebrating IWD. I love the Woman on a Vespa. 🙂

    • Why, thanks! When I saw that painting, I knew it would be perfect for the post. I was kind of sad to see few mentions around the other vespa blogs or communities about it being IWD. Thanks for visiting the blog and have a great weekend.

    Happy IWD… although a day late! I was celebrating quietly over here. Hell yes, the world would suck without us 🙂
