Hard to believe that we are just days away from Easter! It's really snuck up this year. For some reason, I always think of Easter being an April holiday but I know that certainly isn't always the case. Easter's definitely one of my favorite holidays, one focused around faith and family. I love that Easter is a little more low-key, expectations are simple and a great reason together and celebrate. Last year was one of the easiest Easter's I can remember. My mother had recently moved in after her accident and we where ready to just relax and come together again. I cooked a simple, Spring inspired meal that everyone loved.
When I started thinking about what I would do this year, I initially thought I would go all out. Then I took a step back, really give it some thought and decided I would follow last year's theme of a simple, understated Easter. It's supposed to be close to 60° here in New England with a lot of sun so I'm hopeful we can get out for a family walk, have a nice meal and just take the afternoon to relax and enjoy family. As my children get older, they become busier and it puts time into perspective.
