Happy Easter

In just a couple of hours it will be Easter Sunday, one of  my favorite days of the year.  And to top it off, it's also my birthday!  I am thrilled that my birthday falls on Easter.   And here's a fun fact:  The last time Easter was on April 24th was in 1859.  The next time will be in 2095.  Yes, I like to Google odd little facts like this.

My Aunt Riz, who has a delightful blog called Gifts from the Sea, sent me the loveliest Easter/Birthday package.  I didn't get a photo of it when I opened it (dang) but nestled in bright colored tissue, I found jelly beans and Easter chocolates, as well as a lovely teapot, tea crackers, jam & English breakfast tea, and some Easter towels and potholders, Peeps!, and a sweet little chick.  I felt like a little girl, seeing my birthday and Easter all wrapped up in a package.  It made me smile:)

This evening we went to mass for Easter Vigil and tomorrow we're going out for brunch with my dad and stepmom, and my brother, sister-in-law and my favorite 6-year-old:)  

Happy Easter, Happy Spring to everyone!

Happy Easter to you too. And a very very happy birthday. This is my favorite day of the whole year, and I would love to celebrate my birthday on it. So enjoy to the fullest!

Happy birthday, Karen! What a thoughtful aunt you have. :-) My hubby's birthday was yesterday. I don't think it's ever fallen on Easter, at least not in the 21 years we've been married. His eldest daughter's b'day is on the 18th, and we have celebrated it on Easter. Double delight, huh? :-)
