Easter is Almost Here....Are you ready?

Happy Spring...

It's hard to believe that Easter is almost here. The excitement of the Easter Bunny, celebrating the true meaning of Easter and special time spent with family has always held a special place in my heart.  Those special memories are the exact same traditions I've tried to re-create for my own little family. Getting up at the crack of dawn (literally) for an Easter morning sunrise service at church, coming home to fix a big breakfast and see what treats the Easter Bunny brought and sometimes catching a little nap from getting up so early. We would finish the rest of the day with Easter lunch with family and afternoon egg hunt with cousins. The excitement from counting who gathered the most eggs or who found the prize egg are memories that last a lifetime. Getting to share this special time with family and being reminded of the true meaning of Easter has my heart SO full this Spring because we get to have these celebrations.

Last year during the pandemic, we were all so afraid to be around our loved ones so we created the "You've Been Egged" printable to help spread some Easter cheer from afar. Many of our followers shared pictures with us using our printable to bless their neighbors, cousins and friends with surprise Easter Egg Hunts that made for memories even during a difficult time. You all asked that we continue this sweet tradition so I am including this:
