Shalom Y'All

Just returned home from the most magical trip to Israel.
(Yarmulkes in Jerusalem, June 2014.)

We rode camels in the Negev desert, walked with jaws dropped through the ancient stone city of Petra, pilgrimaged into Old Jerusalem, floated in the Dead Sea, explored the bottom of a three million year old crater and much more. 
(In retrospect, Luca and I probably shouldn't have been so close to the camel!)

While I was away, a lovely piece about my upcoming book "Novel Interiors" was posted on Tory Burch's blog. To say I am honored is an understatement --  a big thank you to editor Venessa Lau for interviewing me and writing the article. 
(Click HERE to read the interview.)

More very soon...I'm busy uploading photos and tussling with a fierce case of jet lag.


P.S. My friend Ione Skye just wrote a wonderful children's book called "My Yiddish Vacation" about her funny childhood experiences with her grandparents Ruth and Sammy in 1970's Florida. It's full of essential vocabulary words like "shvitz" which my son now uses as often as he can.

Luca: Mom, why are you shvitzing so much?
Me: Because it's ninety degrees and I'm lugging groceries. How about you put down your DS and help me?

 You can buy it HERE and read a great interview with Ione about it HERE.
