Easter was beautiful this year. Beautiful because of what it is, of course. But also because of what it was this year. This year, Easter was smaller, calmer, less outward driven for us, more deliberate. We had our traditional Easter brunch with delicious things we had on hand. I had two cans of cherry pie filling in our pantry, and Madison made a delicious coffee cake we hadn't thought of in years. We also had scrambled eggs, frozen cinnamon rolls, fruit salad, and some frozen hash brown potatoes that Madison found hiding in her freezer!
There were baskets and chocolate, and a beautiful Easter mass on television, offered by our amazing pastor and friend Fr. Ross. We didn't get dressed up, or take a family picture. I didn't even get pictures of the kids with their baskets. But we were together. We called my dear mom and texted other family members. We took a nap. And played a game. Easter came, despite a horrible worldwide pandemic. And this year, for me, it meant even more.
I hope you had a blessed Easter with your loved ones, my friends.
Now, I am off to put the bunnies and carrots away. I am feeling the need for a less cluttered space these days! Thanks for visiting!
