Happy {Good} Friday

Easter might just be one of my favorite holidays. Well, if you know me at ALL, then you know every holiday is my favorite holiday, but I do particularly enjoy Easter. Beyond the obvious religious significance, it also signals that winter has come to an end and that sunshine and blue skies are ahead — remember, I live in Seattle, where the sun hibernates with the bears, all winter long. Don’t get me wrong, I love winter. It’s my 2nd favorite season (Christmas, duh). But there’s just something special about the world coming back to life — the days are longer, the flowers are blooming, and everyone seems just a little bit happier.

In honor of the holiday weekend, here are a few of my faves from the world wide web…

These banana scones with browned butter glaze might just be on the menu for Sunday morning breakfast:

This tablescape, which sadly will probably only be making an appearance in my dreams:

These DIY gold dipped + marble Easter eggs:

This centerpiece, which has been on my Pinterest page for 2 years running, yet I have still not made:

And I saved the best for last…this bunny, which I really hope ends up in my Easter basket (hint, hint):

P.S. Not from the world wide web, but something I wish even more would be present for our Easter celebration is my little brother, currently serving in the Marines — he, along with thousands of other troops, don’t get to celebrate with their families this weekend. Remember to say a little prayer of thanks for each and every one of them.

Happy Easter, lovelies.

    • Thanks, Maria :) I certainly hope so, considering I plan to dedicate a full post to you and your cooking in the very near future. Which means I need to cook more chicken mole and rice and beans and tortillas. Yessss.
