Easter 2014

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter.  It’s a beautiful time, spring is finally here and we are reminded of new beginnings both in our surroundings and spiritually as well.


We used the dining table inside for our buffet and ate outside!

The weather has been so nice we decided to have Sunday lunch outside on the porch!

My favorite things:  blue and white dishes, monogrammed napkins from a sweet client, my Granny’s flatware and the words to this Easter hymn!IMG_1480 IMG_1481

And of course some Trader Joe’s flowers, an extra Ikea table I pulled in from the garage storage for the “kids table” and some Paper Source flowers and tags and stamp . . .and of course, deviled eggs.

So in love with these boys.  They are growing so fast. Henry blew my mind by actual wearing that bowtie for hours…SHOCKING but so darn cute. And Drew, well Drew is such a gentleman and just so Drew.  So thankful for them. And their patient, wonderful Daddy.


I will be honest I am feeling pretty overwhelmed this Monday morning with projects and work.  But the truth of Easter and my Savior remind me of the big picture and that everything really will be okay despite the chaos of our daily lives!

“He arose a victor from the dark domain and He lives forever with His saints to reign, He arose! He arose! Hallelujah Christ Arose!”

    So lovely…I would expect nothing less. I actually thought of you when I was putting out my paper plates and utensils 😀 I have around 25 people come and sometimes I crave the quaintness you table so perfectly portrays!! Instead..it is craziness…good but not so quaint. And that bow tie…that is as delicious as that ham! Lil cuties! Our Redeemer lives and I am so thankful for that!!!!!!!!!!!
