Easter has felt a little lonely these past few years, as my family is far away. I have such fond childhood memories of the weeks leading up to Easter: shopping for that special Easter dress with my Mom and my sister, Palm Sunday church service, dying pretty eggs. No more waking up Easter morning to see what the Easter Bunny has so sweetly left in our baskets, sunrise service in the church courtyard, egg hunts, or annual picnic cookouts with Dad's barbecued chicken and what seemed like a dozen delicious side dishes. I don't think my husband realized how much I miss Easter with my family, until we were at the store today and I explained to him that I'd like to try and capture a little of that feeling this weekend. So right now, we're in the midst of smoking ribs and will have a special picnic-style dinner tonight, with a bike ride and a picnic at the park planned for tomorrow. What are your plans?
A few fun links for you this Easter weekend:

Happy Easter Everyone!
