3 Things I’ve learned as an Adbusting-Jewish-Wife

HAPPY BUY NOTHING DAY+HANUKKAH+BIRTHDAY TO MY MAN! 

Let me explain. For 5 years I worked at Adbusters magazine, the organization responsible for the anti-black friday campaign Buy Nothing Day. I’m also Jewish, and the festival of lights is now in full swing. And last but not least, 31 years ago today, my husband was born.

SO, as a ex-adbusting-jewish-wife of chris kelly, I have a lot to be thankful for today. Therefore, I wanted to share the top three things I have learned from each of these organizations/faiths/people:

From ADBUSTERS:

Be crazy. Seriously, have completely outlandish, off the wall ideas – and you might just have one that captures peoples imaginations and changes the world.

From JUDAISM:

Power of ritual. My adult bat mitzvah has been one of the most meaningful experiences in my life, but in addition to that once in a lifetime coming-of-age, every passover dinner shared with friends, shabbat with family, and high holiday service attended is a grounding force that reminds me of community and family.

From CHRIS KELLY:

Love fearlessly. From the first day I met Chris, he wore his heart on his sleeve. 1o years ago he made me open up at a time I didn’t think it was possible for me to trust someone, and still to this day he lays his heart on the table and tells me everyday how he needs my love. The boy ain’t afraid to love and does so with reckless abandon. It’s inspiring.
