Ok so we know I’m in love (I’m happy to tell the whole world) but at a time full of festivities it does make you stop and think about loved ones. Being away from your family and friends that have known you for years can be so difficult. But, it’s the chance to make new friends, and meet new people. Although I have no family here ( and I do miss my own family a lot) I’m very grateful that I can choose the people I can call family now. The people that you know will be there for you, in exactly the same way! The quotation, “friends are the family you get to pick” (or something on those lines!)
So for all my new and original family and friends, I would like to wish you all a happy chanukah and may the rest of your year be full of everlasting light and happiness!
Love to you all
