Then you blink and it is Easter. It took me by surprise, I seriously had lost the concept of time. This is our 4th week of quarantine and even when it is going to be a different Easter for us, we are going to make the best out of it.
Part of the “best part” it’s all the candy!!! I made these cute, delicious treats with my girls and we had so much fun. We ended up with chocolate on the floor, on our shoes, our hair, even my camera joined the fun. We each licked a spoon and it was just sweet and precious. We are planning an egg hunt in our back yard and other fun activities.
This Easter I am going to miss my Church, my friends and our delicious potlucks. I pray we come out of this stronger and we never take for granted again the blessing of gathering together.
Happy Easter, everyone!
