Happy Easter!

I am in the in between moment of the day.  We've just gone to church and are preparing to leave for Grandma's in an hour.  Mom is running an errand, Katie's taking a nap, Dad is still at church, and I am sitting at the table, writing.

I love Easter.  I love this beautiful sunshiny 69 degree day (Minnesota in the spring-time is utterly breathtaking.  Mississippi is starting to become humid and hot, so it's a nice break to be here for a bit).  I love my family and how they remind me to laugh hard and be at peace.  I LOVE the music at church- the brass ensemble and the amazing choirs.  I especially love that tiny bells are handed out to kids to ring whenever the word 'Alleluia' is spoken or sang.  I love our family's tradition of making Ukrainian Easter eggs and I love the candied ham loaves Mom makes.

Happy Easter everyone.  Enjoy the beauty of the day.  I'm going to go play the piano to celebrate.

Best. Holiday.
