Happy Easter, Mama!

My mother has been anticipating Easter for weeks now, starting to ask us what our plans to celebrate the holiday were back in late February — would we like to spend Easter with her? At her house? At our house? Could we have ham?

If it wasn’t for her, I don’t think Sean and I would notice that today was Easter. I told my mother that Yes we would love to celebrate with her, and Yes she could come stay the night to wake up to a proper Easter, with baskets for the dogs from the Easter bunny.

I have to admit, I was not looking forward to this weekend.

Easter Shmeester, I said.

When I picked her up last night after work, she said, “I’ve been packing here and there for a few days now.” I could tell she was really looking forward to celebrating with us (she even wrote out a grocery list), and her excitement was contagious; I started to get more and more excited about the weekend.

And for good reason. This weekend with the three of us (+ dogs) has been absolutely phenomenal. We had way too much fun and I ended up taking 733 pictures.

Here are a few of them:

We cooked breakfast, and Easter dinner. We watched movies and went walking at the beach. We laughed all weekend and had a great time just hanging around spending time together. I felt like a kid again having my mom here to spend the holiday, and she seemed to glow with happiness.

I hope your Easter was just as lovely.
