new coming this weekHi all! I hope you had a great week!

This week kicks off Passover, so we have some family celebrations Sunday and Monday (we are starting a day early so we can take advantage of the weekend’s quieter traffic for our folks who live a bit further away). Both my girls will be there both days, so I’m really excited, as we aren’t always able to coordinate to have them both there at once. I hope everyone observing has a joyous and meaningful holiday!

This week we are also in the home stretch before our trip to the Netherlands and Belgium. We leave next weekend and so we have some last minute planning details, plus laundry and all the other pre-trip stuff. I am an obsessive planner, so all the major (and most of the minor) things are already organized, but we are still fine tuning a bit. I am so looking forward to it!

On the blog news front, I just wanted to let everyone know I’ve made the decision to shut down our Facebook group, the Joyful Jays. I started the group on FB as a place to repost reviews published here on the blog. Now, FB is taking away the ability to automatically send blog feeds to groups completely, and there is no way to cross post blog content there beyond reposting it all manually (which is just not feasible given how much content we produce here).

Just to be clear, because I made things confusing when I posted this on Facebook, this blog is not going anywhere. We are continuing to post here as normal. You can still find reviews here, you can still subscribe to our Daily Digest of posts, and you can still find reviews cross posted on our blog FB page, Joyfully Jay Reviews. The only change is that I’m closing the small Facebook group. I will keep the group open a few more days to give everyone time to see the message, and then shut things down.

Ok, so here is what we have planned for this week…
