Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. I have so many happy memories that I associate with this time of the year. Easter egg hunts, dying Easter eggs, my mom's coconut bunny cake, fun Easter baskets, vacations in Florida. While none of those things are the reason for Easter, they're fun traditions that hold really happy memories for me. So you can imagine my surprise (read horror) when my husband mentioned that he had never had an Easter basket, dyed eggs, or had a proper Easter egg hunt!
As my family is in Michigan and his family is a bit spread out everywhere, we've always celebrated Easter just the two of us. In the past we've gone to the sunrise service at the Lincoln Memorial, which is pretty amazing, followed by going out to brunch.
This year we changed it up a little bit by going to our own church for the Easter service and making brunch at home together. I really enjoyed our service because it was a celebration but there was still a strong message and teaching to the service.
I made french toast sticks and we had mimosas and for being away from family it was the perfect Easter sunday. (french toast recipe coming tomorrow!)
My radishes appear to be growing strong two weeks in and the zucchini are just starting to pop up so I'm crossing my fingers both will continue to grow!
And I'm throwing in one random blurry picture from the night before when we went out to dinner with good friends. It was a great weekend overall!
