Filled to the brim. That is what this weekend was for me. My husband and I left Friday afternoon to first pick up our daughter, then we drove to pick up our son, and finally arrived at my sister's house to start off the Easter weekend.
I knew for quite some time that I wanted to spend Easter with my kids. It was just a matter of how to execute the wish. To spend Easter at our house would have meant even more driving time and less celebrating time. So being sisters I asked "can we celebrate at your house?" Being sisters she said "yes".
My sister is a fabulous cook and hostess. We had a whirlwind of seeing relatives, eating, talking, eating, shopping, eating. I think I'm done with food for now. Driving home yesterday (and dropping each kid off at their campus), my husband and I have sworn we are eating salads for at least 48 hours to detox from the sugar. Yep.
On Saturday night, we celebrated the Easter vigil at the "mother house". I wish I could remember the name of the convent. I'm going with Sisters of the Holy Spirit. Anyways, the service was beautiful even though it was long. I also ran into my 7th and 8th grade principal. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing her and remembering fondly my elementary school years. Seems like yesterday for me.
How was your weekend?
