I admittedly could not help myself this Easter on the mommy and me matching front. Even before all this corona virus stuff went down, something told me I didn’t want the girls to get too old where it’s no longer cool for their mom to dress like them so I had a sense of urgency this Easter to finally act on it. Even though we had nowhere to be on Easter Sunday and tuned into Easter mass from our couch in pajamas and slippers and had a box of crackers for communion, I insisted we change into our Easter Sunday best. Now, doesn’t mean sweatpants weren’t changed back into shortly after but it did make me feel hopeful, thankful and blessed especially on that day of all days.
Tradition is big for me especially when it comes to holidays and I was a little worried I couldn’t pull it off without all our family around but thankfully my parents had instilled a lot of tradition around this holiday and every holiday that I knew how to make it special all on my own from a special breakfast to hiding the baskets and even got a makeshift picture with the bunny from a photographer friend.
I can already tell this time with just us as a family is one thing I will definitely miss once we’re back out in the world, having to keep up with all the things, so I’m soaking it up as much as I possibly can.
