Mimouna

Mimouna is especially Moroccan. After pessah every welcomes guests and joins parties at each other houses eating as many cakes and pastries as they want.

Shiyara fell asleep at the house of some friends and I love carrying her up the stairs and home. Little princess.

Pessah in Casablanca

The best part of the seder is being surrounded by family, anyone’s family especially dysfunctional ones. I love the noise and the bustle of children playing and adults chattering and everyone having an opinion and where you don’t need to be polite anymore because you are with your crazy noisy big ridiculous family. I am sitting with an exes family and even though we are finished being a couple, his family to me is not finished. If we married people for their families I would have married lots of men. Families here remind me of my own big family with 5 sisters and an older brother and an aura of beautiful chaos.
