Friends i hope you all had a very happy Easter full of happiness, chocolate mouthfuls, family, fondness and renewal.
Ours was simply and positively lovely. I didn’t manage to make the boys Easter attire this year as I have in years past but I did make little Miss a hand painted dress last minute. We threw on her bunny ears from last year (it’s amazing how much they can change in a year) and pulled out this little duct tape basket and off a hunting she did go!
The boys enjoyed hunting for eggs as well as helping their sister in the event (the boys wore clothing from past, such as this favorite sweater, which worked out just fine). And Jon and I enjoyed watching simple memories take place.
I think holidays like Easter and Christmas often “pause” time for a bit…allowing us to look at our life and what we have, sort of in slow motion. We are happy. We might not have a place of our own to call home, or a solid idea of what the future holds but what we do have a beautiful life. And the spring beckons me to begin again, find new pastures, plant new seeds and find beauty all around me. I love every minute of it.
