Zara's Shalom Soiree


(Rose Heart Bouquet made by friend Jane - www.budgetblooms.ca - the theme was hearts)

Zara had her first party. It was hosted by her amazing Zia Linda - the most VIBRANT woman in my universe.

Zia Linda is powerhouse mom of twins - Madeleine and Noelle.

Three old souls that I am blessed to have as my surrogate family.

Zia touched my heart and soul by investing her precious time and energy to organize Zara's party. She didn't forget a thing, from the kosher coffee to the creative gift www.heifer.org . It was a very enchanting day!

Zara spent the day asleep while a dozen women showered her with love and gifts.

Each of her siblings read her a short blessing and Zia read a poignant Kaballah story that didn't leave a dry eye in the room. (Zia's a very talented writer/teacher and is a natural born reader)

Zia Tracy wrote a beautiful poem from Zara to us called "What Am I Thinking" that even made the BH sob. (Zia T missed her calling as a Blue Mountain card writer)

Thank you Linda, Tracy and friends from that deep place in my soul full of LOVE.

Thanks for stopping by!

Your daughter is lovely. Congrats to you and your family.

Shalom - doesn't that mean peace?

Zara, a very beautiful name - what does it mean?

Thanks for visiting!

Yes, Shalom means peace and also hello and g'bye.

Zara means princess. Not in a Jewish American Princess sorta way - more like a flower love child princess.

I make my own rules (;
