Happy Easter! 2015

He is risen! He is risen indeed!

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you had a beautiful day today! Mine was amazing. πŸ™‚ I cannot begin to express how blessed I am to have such a large close-knit family. My Mom and Grandmas’ are awesome cooks and one day I hope I’ll be one too! For now – everyone will just have to enjoy my super-extra-well-done oven french toast. LOL!

Traditions make holidays super special. Some of the ones we have for Easter are having poppy seed rolls (passed down by my Czech grandmother), purchasing an Easter Lily, having a butter lamb and eating horse radish before getting our Easter baskets – the last two which we adopted from the Polish parish we were members ofΒ before. (We’re not Polack! Lol!) Variety is the spice of life. πŸ™‚

And… of course I couldn’t resist and had to record the day through a series of pictures. Enjoy!
