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

Repost: Easter Cocktails?!?

4/12/20: 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!

2023 EPILOGUE: Alas, we still haven’t all managed to get together for Easter since the start of the pandemic. Maybe next year… I miss those people!

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!
