If there is a day that is a touchstone for my life, and one that I remember more clearly than any other holiday growing up, it's Easter. Even many of my Christmases have blurred together with only a few standing out in my memory such as the first one spent away from home when I went to college, and the first one after I got married.
But for me, Easter day is different. I remember so many of them as I was growing up and spending the day with close and extended family and enjoying a big meal.

Easter and springtime is really the time of the year that reminds me that hope is eternal and all is possible. I hope today that you also enjoy celebrating Easter and spring for the promise that they both bring.
We have enjoyed a quiet weekend at home. We have gotten started on the spring yard-work, and just sitting outside warming up in the sun.
