What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Easter Cocktails?!?

I have spent every Easter since the age of 1 or 2 with my extended family. Nearly all 32 first cousins (with spouses and children in tow), plus everyone from my father’s generation would all converge upon one of the restaurants near the town where we grew up. There was an Easter egg hunt and games for the little ones, plus a raffle and basket filing for the older kids. And once you hit adulthood, the real fun started.

We’d spike our pitchers of juice, and sneak in mimosas and Irish coffees, then when the larger family party broke up, the adults and big kids would meet up in the bar and spend the rest of the day catching up and laughing and cocktailing together. This year, of course, all that is cancelled. I am raising a glass to my darling cousins and their families. I hope we can clink glasses again someday soon!

  1. I always thought that Easter egg hunts and basket were for the kids. At my age, and living where I choice to live there are no kids. This is the first Sunday in my memory that I have not gone to church. That makes me sad that I must remain somewhat isolated and alone. I look foward to better times and a more enjoyable days when this is over. Thanks for the post today. Hal

  2. Once I married into my husband’s family I learned that Easter=mimosas and salmon mousse. I added the children and deviled eggs. That lavender lemonade looks amazing, I say we need a choice. Or mimosas for breakfast and lavender lemonade for lunch….
