The View from Here...

Easter is always one of my favorite days of the year and this year was no exception.  It was a blessing to have my mom visiting from the States and to wake up to sunshine on what was predicted to be a rainy day.  We took part in all of the beloved Easter traditions; watching the girls delight in their Easter baskets and hunting eggs; worshipping and celebrating Jesus' resurrection at church; and enjoying a leisurely and simple brunch followed by naps, an afternoon walk, and facetiming friends and family back at home....

I've just finished reading this book; and I loved how menus of special gatherings of friends and families were captured in writing so as to remember the meal shared together.  Thought it would be fun to start doing this for my girls too...

Easter Brunch

Mimosas & Juices 
Simple Green Salad
Strawberries & Raspberries
Memaw's buttermilk biscuits
Peach Preserves
Jell-o Jigglers (for the kids)
Carrot Cake Cupcakes

The refrain of the old hymn "Christ the Lord is Risen Today" is still playing in my head...
