I open the windows, the birds are chirping, the orange blossoms are intoxicating, flowers are blooming, and the air is just a little warmer! Spring is about to be upon us as well as my favorite childhood holiday...EASTER! As a young girl I loved Easter! I don't know if it was the feel of the warming sun on my skin, my new Easter dress and sandals, the pastels, the egg dying and baskets or the afternoon where all the family got together to celebrate! Family has always been a huge part of who i am as a person. Everything in life is better together and Easter was no different! we would meet up with our cousins and aunts and uncles at my granny and papa's house. We would have a big picnic lunch, run around and hunt for Easter eggs and build huge memories! Now I have children of my own, and although we don't get together every year with all the extended family, the day is still so much fun!
Here are some ways we welcome The spring holidays into our home:
We plant flowers in the yard
We put out our home and lawn decorations
We dye Easter eggs
We have an Easter Day Picnic
We surround ourselves with family
Sometimes life puts us all over the map and family is not always close. Unfortunately this is the case in our family, but thanks to Evite we are able to send a card to let the family know we are with them this season in spirit! I made a special card for our family using Evite to let them know we are thinking about them and can't wait to get together soon!
What are some ways you celebrate Spring with your family? We would love to hear about your traditions as well!
