I hope you had a lovely Easter! Ours was wonderful and we are so grateful. We headed to 6:30 AM Mass (our barely-in-time arrival was captured by the news, ha!), enjoyed a big brunch at home, and then soaked in the sunshine at our friends’ house all afternoon. We have spent almost every Easter since […]
