The kids played together, watched movies together, and opened up Easter baskets.
I set the table using pretty, yellow daffodils and my ceramic bunnies.
I didn't take one picture.
I decided to simply live in the moment. To focus on preparing the food and joining in on conversation. I decided to not worry about how the lighting was or worry about bringing everyone outside for photos.
I wonder if I did the right thing. I know that life is short and moments with family should be captured. But shouldn't life also be fully lived for those same reasons?
In the spirit of Easter, I am sharing a gift box I created using Webster's pages goodies. It is simple packaging, but the intent is to bring joy in little ways.
I made a folded card with an envelope flap. The inside looks like this:
I used a mini bag to hold small candy. A couple of punched holes and some twine, and it is all fastened! I used the New Beginnings collection to make these goodies!
In the spirit of Easter, I decided to just be present yesterday. I will find a time in the near future to take those photos. Whether or not they are taken, the memories have been made!
