Happy Easter everyone!

This is the first Easter I have not headed home for and frankly, I am a little heartbroken.
I know in my heart that I can get together with my family anytime, but I miss them.
I have only seen them here and there since Christmas and I need to go up and visit.
I need an overnight trip.
I need to sit on my Mom and Dad's front porch, overlook the pond and garden.
I need to sip hot tea and chit chat with my Mom while my kids run around in the yard.
Until then, I will enjoy my day as Easter is meant to enjoy. I will search the house with my children for their baskets, read books to them and talk about the true meaning of Easter, and do an Egg hunt in the yard, as today is going to be beautiful.

Enjoy your day and I hope you are having a relaxing day with family.

Happy Easter! I hope you had a good day - I'm sorry you were homesick, though. We had the same egg coloring kit here! :-)

Happy Easter too. I hope you enjoyed your day even though I know it was sad not to be with your parents. No doubt they missed you too.
