Happy Easter, beauties! I love this holiday because it’s all about new beginnings. Even if you don’t celebrate Easter, there’s no denying that the season is bursting with life and it’s a wonderful time to celebrate the regeneration of all life. Flowers are blooming. Tree buds are fighting to open. The birds, squirrels and bunnies have once again invaded my yard and are frolicking all day long. Nature is renewing itself, and I love it!
Inside my home, the preparations for Easter make my heart happy because I am a family tradition lover. Whether I’m making cardboard eggs from recycled materials with my boys or dipping real eggs into spring-colored dyes, taking the time to do something a little creative with the family helps us to slow down and enjoy the season. Filling Easter baskets with yummy treats and little gifts is also part of traditions that make this season special.
With this season of new beginnings also comes a little reflection. I think of my Grandmom Rose who loved Easter. I think of my faith, and I’m thankful for all I have. And, I think of all my Jing Ai beauties, and I wish each of you a joyous Easter, a wonderful spring, and a time of renewal bursting with new beginnings!
Pure Love Grows, Donna XOXOXO
