Memories Monday, April 9th
This picture is me from Easter last year. I have been thinking a lot about Easter holidays and how important and special they were to me growing up. The fact was that I almost always had a new dress and new shoes for the holiday growing up. I knew that was not what the holiday was about, but it was always special. Aside from the new outfit, someone always did something different with my hair. I grew up with impossibly straight hair and it would get put in pink foam rollers for special occasions. The other fond memory that pops up for me is going to church with my Nanny. Afterwards, we would go to my Nanny's and have a special dinner and hunt for eggs. I have fond memories of coloring eggs and going out in her big backyard to hunt for them. Things were simple then...more so than now, it seems. I am trying to bring back some of those traditions with my family. All of my children were together in one house for Easter dinner, along with my mother-in-law. I hope that this is just the beginning of a new tradition for my crew. What fond memories do you have related to the Easter holiday?
