Happy Easter to all of you who celebrate this holiday! It seems a bit frivolous to do an Easter post with photos of a bowl of pastel colored, foil wrapped chocolates, but I don’t have a good example/photo of Christ’s resurrection
ascension back to heaven, despite the many santos and other religious icons handed down to us from generations past, so chocolates will have to do. In addition to the religious significance of the holiday, in our home, with a young child around, Easter also meant all of the fluff of the season… colored eggs, more eggs, and more eggs, flowers, bunnies, chocolates, marshmallows, cookies, baskets, bonnets, dresses, hunts, etc. But it’s different this year, the Kid is now the Teen, she is fast asleep late morning hoping she will grow some more, and when she wakes, she’ll have this bowl filled with Easter chocolates…
Thank goodness we had some time to pass by a grocery in New Hampshire last week, as I LOVE holiday chocolates and almost always have a bowl put out of Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s and Easter chocolates… and these were a huge bargain at $2 per pack. If there were more kids around the house I would have snuck in several chocolate bunnies as well!
So whether you are at mass, at an Easter Egg Hunt, or cleaning out the cage of that silly Easter bunny the mall was giving away several years ago and whom the Kid took home, and who has been a faithful pet for over 5 years, well beyond its expected lifespan, Marketman, family and crew wish you all a wonderful Easter! We are having a ham today rather than spring lamb, how about you?
