Holidays and family have become so much more important as I’ve gotten older and have a child of my own. Spending the day with friends and family is what it’s all about it. Right now I’m typing this as my 4 year old is passed out on the couch exhausted from playing with her “cousins” and my husband taking a break from cleaning up. (One perk of being 8 months pregnant and throwing a dinner party – you get to skimp on clean up duty) :}
But what I’m getting at is family, whether the same blood runs through your body or not, will always be there and there is no other people in the world you should share holidays with. My house is a mess from kids running through it, the kitchen is a mess from filling bellies but my heart is beyond full of joy and love I could ever imagine. And I wouldn’t change.a.thing.
I was too immersed in my family today to get pictures of everyone but just picture the cutest little girls playing in Easter dresses and one dapper little dude holding his own. Imagine adults talking over wine (or lemonade) about their lives and what lies in the future. The sun is shining and everyone is happy as a clam.
That’s what today was like for me and I hope the same for you.
However…I did manage to catch some photos of the setup along with my little helper. Those dimples melt my heart!

Happy Easter from our family to yours!
