Something about an intimate Bar-Mitzvah caught my attention. I guess because when you think of Bar-Mitzvahs you think of events similar to a wedding but for a 13 year old. They usually invite the entire class and then some. When David called and said he wanted to do something small with just a few family and friends for his twins, I couldn’t wait to see what he had planned. I love when things are unexpected. It terrifies me from a professional stand point but on a personal level I love when things fall outside the box.
Carens in Yorkville was the perfect little venue. Wine and Cheese, who could complain! Guess it’s not a 13 year olds preference but I will take a doggy bag please and thank you!
Baye and Matia are two lucky kids and whether they realize it now or not, their father loves them more than words can say. I’m actually tearing up thinking back to his speech. He spoke so highly of the two and with so much emotion it made my heart melt. Even though I don’t do emotional events (I’m a cryer with the inability to turn the waterworks off, so why start?!?!) I’m glad I took the time to listen. A fathers love for his kids and all that they have accomplished can move just about anyone.
