Easter almost didn't happen as I had originally planned. My return flight from Mexico City was cancelled and I scrambled to find flights that would get us home in time for Easter. Luckily, we arrived home safely in time to celebrate with family!
We went to church with my parents on Sunday morning. Although I prefer the traditional service on Easter for the hymns and music, we went to the contemporary service at 9:30 a.m. in order to accommodate all of our other plans.
After church, we enjoyed a delicious lunch at Schroyer's Tavern in Middletown with my parents. With everything from traditional ham and turkey to treats like asparagus and shrimp salad, I enjoyed several trips to the buffet. My mom prepared little Easter eggs for everyone that had their favorite treats. My eggs were pink and green with my favorite candy bar, Mr. Goodbar.
Later in the afternoon, we traveled to Northern Virginia to enjoy another Easter celebration with John's family. Natalia and Alexia hid eggs for the younger children to find. For them, it was more fun to hide the eggs than it would be to find them!
As I mentioned in a previous post, I wore Lilly Pulitzer for Easter. The Delia dress in Johnny B. beautifully combines green and navy. The incredibly dynamic colors are one of my favorite combinations. For reference I'm wearing a size 6, which is my usual size, since I fluctuate between a 4 and a 6. I paired the dress with a cardigan, also from Lilly Pulitzer, and sandals. My daughters both wore cotton eyelet dresses.
How did you celebrate Easter this year?
