Easter is one of my favorite holidays. I love waking up to the excitement of digging through the easter basket my mother so lovingly constructed the night before. It is, of course, different now that I’m older; my dad and I share a basket nowadays. Different is not necessarily bad, I can now return the gestures my mom has done for so long; I can give her presents and pick her wildflower bouquets.
I’ve begun looking forward to the holiday traditions Caleb and I will create for our own family. I imagine early mornings steeped in coffee and sleep-deprived eyes watching our lovely children rip apart easter baskets and pounce on every egg that we have hidden so easily.
I can’t imagine family traditions with anyone else.
For now, I am content with making traditions with our dog child Kyber.
Here’s a look into our Easter weekend this year:
