My family is at the Outer Banks celebrating Easter this year, so it was up to me to create some Easter memories for myself today!
First, I pulled out my Easter basket from when I was a kid, my name tag in my mother's handwriting still intact, and filled it with some special Easter goodies.
Then, I hard cooked some eggs for dying.
I've never tried coloring brown eggs before, but they worked nicely!
Of course the hues are different and I didn't attempt anything creative like last year, but I think they look lovely with my vintage Easter basket.
Then, I made some butter, a recent Easter tradition for me. I know it sounds goofy, but I find something very spiritual about making butter on Easter Sunday - creating something luscious from grass-fed raw milk cream, the beautiful yellow color on a glorious spring day, the anticipation of an abundant life because of what Christ has done....
