Happy Friday! And Happy Good Friday to those who observe the Easter holiday. Here’s what I love about Easter: brunch is almost a requirement and egg-shaped Reese’s. Here’s what I don’t love: jelly beans and having to leave all the easy eggs in the egg hunt ‘for the kids’. Oh and Peeps! I never really got into Peeps.
I will spend Easter this year with family – cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents. I haven’t done this in years, but I’m looking forward to brunching with a crowd that seriously knows how to party, and then watching the next generation eat too much sugar.
Next week you’ll find us in London for some work meetings. We can’t wait to be back ‘home’ and we have filled in all the blank space in our schedule with things like dentist appointments and assignments for the blog and lots of friend time. It will be magical.
Wherever this holiday weekend finds you, I hope that you have plenty of free time to download your brain with a few fun finds from the internet. Or, if your weekend is likely to be a pastel swirl of activity, take a break when you can to savor something mindless. Or something chocolate, as the case may be.
