Easter Magic

I love holidays for a number of reasons, but uninterrupted time with my very favorite people is probably the #1 reason I love to celebrate anything and everything.  Easter weekend was no exception.  I saw everyone on my Fresno must-see list, which rarely happens these days.  I spent every single night catching up and being silly with my sisters.  I hung out with my doggies and kitty cats.  I felt peace in my heart on Easter Sunday.  I ate an enormous amount of delicious food, and was grateful for wonderful cooks with every bite.  My mom, baby sister and I spent a day in San Luis Obispo for sissy's softball tournament, and mama and I soaked up the sun and went shopping afterwards.  I've gotten really good at this whole being a grown-up thing since college, but I may have teared up a bit saying good-bye today.  I am so thankful for the four fantastic days I got to spend catching up, laying low and sharing lots of love. 


Clockwise from the kitty in the upper left hand corner: Our sweet Pookie, who provides us with countless hours of entertainment; my dad's adorable garden in our front yard; lunch date with my mom and some friends; ducky Easter basket, Jelly Bird Nests, and a strawberry pie (yum!); box of old home movies that we watched this weekend; early birthday celebration for me; opening presents that included lovely clothes, an emergency kit and all of my sorority composites framed (so grateful); hitting the road; watching softball; teeny (almost invisible) lizard; fro yo from my favorite place in SLO; Mission San Luis Obispo; eating at a SLO institution, F. McLintock's; scary bear watching us at dinner.

Easter, and anytime I am with my family, always makes me think of these song lyrics
You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.  

I hope everyone had a great weekend!
