What a difference a week makes! My parents arrived after a short–but not insignificant–snowstorm that had my spring bulbs covered. Today, it’s in the upper 70s and sunny.Continue reading “Easter 2021”
Easter certainly wasn’t ‘normal’ for anyone this year, but being forced to spend the holiday at home allowed us to have special time as a family and experience some age-old traditions in new ways. Continue reading “Maelle’s 1st Easter”
This post is belated because I was waiting for these adorable mugs to arrive! I spied one (along with its matching child’s size version, too) at Grandma’s house while we were visiting last weekend and I fell in love. They’re from Sur La Table, my favorite kitchen-supply store, so we hopped on over on Saturday while we were out running errands. Unfortunately, they were only available online (and incredibly marked-down), so Grandma treated me to four for my Easter table.
The bunnies even remind me of Grandma–she was a librarian and with the glasses, it just fits!
For our annual Easter trip to Grandma’s this year, we chose to leave a day early to spend some extra time with Emily and Dan in Dayton. We ate pizza, the boys played laser tag, Nora played in her water table, and Emily and I hit up Whole Foods for their wine tasting and to pick up some treasures for me to take home. It was a whirlwind of fun and–as usual–we were sad to go.
Nora and I matched when we woke up on Saturday! We ❤ coral and turquoise!
On Saturday, we spent the day with Grandma. Our first order of business each time we come for Easter is to get her glass table and umbrella out of her shed, clean it and eat lunch in the fresh air. Afterward, we ran some errands to help her take care of replacing her water filter in the fridge and salt for her water softener. We ended the evening at Eddie Merlot’s with Aunt Linda and Uncle Dave, who invited us to join them for brunch the next day after church.
Grandma, Andrew and I joined Uncle Dave’s family at the golf club for brunch. We got to meet Chloe, Hannah’s (far left) daughter who turned one year old in January. Luke (far right) is a senior at Purdue majoring in engineering (like his grandfather, father, uncle and cousin, Andrew).
Until next year!
