BAR MITZVAH: Mitchel
West Bloomfield, Michigan
It may seem odd that I’m starting this blog telling you that I was greeted by Mitchel’s mother with a bag full of goodies for my two-day stay as I covered Mitchel’s Bar Mitvah celebration. To me, it was significant. Here’s why. As I got to know these fine folks and witnessed their interactions with family and friends who came to celebrate this special time, I realized it was this type of thing that made the two days wonderful. Sure, the food was amazing, the attention to detail, all the special touches, but it comes down to genuine love and appreciation for those in your life. I was a part of something amazing.
A wonderful family. Full of life. Pets. Great food. Friends. Laughter. Celebration. Proud parents. Generations. Tradition. Good music. Games. More laughter. Fun.
It had it all. Oh, AND it had a hilarious hypnotist, a juggling bartender, some amazing violinists and the coolest ice sculpture I’ve ever seen.
