it's official, we've finally entered into Spring. how do i know? because i wore a dress to church on Sunday and wasn't freezing my tail off. YES. THAT IS RIGHT. on top of it, i love this dress even more than i did when i first saw it because it passed the test of comfortability while i was cooking and sitting during brunch. and the keyhole detail in the back? stop it. oh, it's 50% off today, so you should go get it.
i had one of the most enjoyable Easter Sundays yesterday with my people. my parents, brother, his girlfriend, Mike and i went to my church for an Easter Sunday service and then back to my apartment, where i hosted my first ever holiday all by myself. growing up, i'd always help my mom set up and prepare for dinners, holidays, parties, you name it. she's an excellent host, so i channeled her on Saturday when i was preparing the food and setting the table for brunch. i had a much simpler table scape than she would have, but it still included all the Easter colors and little details, like egg-shaped salt and pepper shakers and fresh pastel-colored tulips. we had some appetizers, since we were all pretty darn hungry when we got out of church. also, mimosas, because i will always find a reason to drink a mimosa.
the windows were open, the sun was shining, the food was delicious, and we had great company to celebrate the meaning of Easter and all that it represents to us. and we even got to open Easter baskets because, ya know, #foreverchildren. i've got Easter candy for weeks.
