Here Comes Peter Cottontail!

Connecticut is a sunny 68 degrees and with the double holiday tomorrow, I could not be happier. It is every so often that my big bro, Colin, (also, Grown Up Lady Me's "Mr. Ginger") gets to celebrate his birthday on Easter. What has this meant for the rest of us? More cadburys, more peeps, more cake, more everything, especially potatoes--boy loves his potatoes! The Easter bunny has a big job on this special occasion...
Even when Easter doesn't fall on Colin's birthday, I have always enjoyed this holiday. I love the pastel decorations, the easter egg hunts, the way it brings in Spring so nicely, and how everyone is so pleasant. 
But like most events in my life, Easter comes with its set of memories and traditions that keeps me fond of it, even now that I'm older. 

1. Dying Easter eggs with my Mom
2. A new Easter dress
3. The Spring Daffodil, which can always be found on the CT roadsides
4. Easter baskets
Stuffed with
5. Peter Cottontail, an oldie but a goodie!

This year comes with some new traditions...I'm the chef! I have already made dessert and they look pretty delicious. I'll see you Monday and let you know how the Easter menu goes!
Have a wonderful Easter!

P.S. Check out this beautiful Easter table setting from Erin at House of Turquoise!
