|Back when the dining room was red. Clearly all this was a big surprise given the feelings leaking from his face. It was the best.|
This year it was particularly important to have some fun and bring some lightness to what has been a truly sucktastic couple of months. We don't really celebrate Easter religiously, as we are not religious, but it is nice to celebrate rebirth and Spring finally coming and a little happiness for ourselves, just as we are.
|I found CABBAGE napkins this year! This is Bryce's stash.|
|Before the crazy hunts, we did do traditional Easter baskets and Bryce found this Easter Knight (I'm sure that's not his real name) and put it in my basket. He comes out every year to oversee the festivities.|
|There weren't any over here, but I love this shot. This is the room that when I saw it I knew a man who had a library like this was a man I needed to spend my life with.|
|He found the "basket!"|
|Love the pure, unadulterated joy in this picture.|
|Searching, searching...he hid them so well!|
|Except the patio cushions, which hid in plain sight and I didn't see until I was two feet away.|
|Best. Tea towel. Ever.|
|Coincidentally, I gave him a tea towel, too. Great minds.|
|At the end, Bryce made a cabbage out of the cabbage napkins.|
|Some beautiful person (Charlotte, I'm looking at you) sent me this magnet, which was delivered ON EASTER. That dirt is from gardening, not my new career as a street urchin from Oliver!. Also, tears.|
|While gardening I ran into the Easter Snake. Just kidding, he's just a snake that lives under our front stone steps. I love him and am glad he survived the winter. He can be startling, but I love that snakes live in my garden.|
|Still clearing out the detritus of winter, but I loved these bright purple hyacinths with white bleeding hearts that are already starting to bloom. Go Spring.|
It was a glorious holiday for the most part. It was a beautiful day. We made the most of what we have, found some joy right now in this moment, and that was a beautiful thing.
