4th Annual Easter Brunch
Easter started a few days early for me, on Thursday. What would normally have been a totally terrible afternoon (my car practically broke down on my way to work; I had to turn around, and leave it at the shop, so I cancelled work and came home) was magically turned around when I was home to receive a special delivery from my mom: a beautiful pot of hydrangeas, which helped get my house in the Easter spirit.
Today was our 4th Annual Pot Luck Easter brunch. I played Easter Bunny yesterday, filling little baskets for everybody (16 people!) and snacking on lots of candy while doing so. The brunch was a huge success, and the weather cooperated this year. It was the perfect temperature for a little post-brunch walk, which I went on with a few of my guests. The spread of food was epic as usual. Lots of full plates, and, soon after, full bellies. The guests have all dissipated to sleep off the meal, but it will be Easter for a few more days at our house, where leftovers have taken over the fridge.
