Happy Easter Weekend everyone! I hope y'all are looking forward to the holiday weekend and spending time with your families. I am especially excited to see all my cousins at the legendary Banks Easter Egg Hunt - it's so fun to watch the little ones running around so excited, while we the adults shamelessly pit them against each other pointing out to each of them where they can find an egg. What! they need a little help sometimes! They're like 5 and under, we'd be out there till dark.
I do have some fond memories of Easters past, especially when in the recent years when my dad knew we were all in college, high school, or living in NY and going broke, so he set up an Easter egg hunt in the back yard for just my sisters and brother with eggs...filled with money. Now we're not talking $100 dolla dolla bills y'all...but change, $1 bills, and one special egg had a $20. It was a fight till the death! Unfortunately, I never was the lucky one to find that egg...but I know my day will come...
Have any great Easter stories? I'd love to hear about them! And if you're looking for a small gift to bring to a family members for hosting the holiday or to give to the adults while the youngsters get their baskets, here is a great gift idea from No Fuss Fabulous - Enjoy!
