Being Catholic, I absolutely love Easter. I think I love it more than Christmas which is hard for most people to believe. Easter is so joyous. I love the time leading up to Easter. Lent is such a wonderful opportunity for us to renew our faith in God and teach ourselves a little self discipline. This lent rather than giving up something, I just worked on being a better Catholic in small ways.
Easter was quite an event for us this year. We started our morning by meeting my in laws for breakfast, followed by a 2nd breakfast at my Grandma's house which included the traditional Polish breakfast. We have eggs, polish sausage, fruit, and these amazing pastries that we order from Chicago. They are amazing! All of the food is taken to the church to be blessed before we eat it which really makes it a special tradition. After breakfast we proceeded on to my in laws house for lunch. James' cousin has a daughter Sophia's age and it was so fun to watch the two of them interacting! Our last and final meal of the day was a delicious prime rib dinner with my family. I am very grateful to have such a wonderful family here in town, but I don't want to eat four meals in one day for a very long time!
