This Easter was all under my control which I loved. From setting the table, buying and arranging the flowers, what platters to use and how I wanted all the food to taste, etc.
Sunday I set my alarm for 8:00 AM, hopped in the shower and immediately got to work on making my homemade au gratin potatoes. Every kitchen needs a mandolin. It makes slicing so much easier and prettier. The ham got its glaze and before I knew it 11:30 was here and guests were arriving. We ate just before noon and everyone seemed to enjoy the food and went back for seconds.
After everyone left mom, dad and I moved out to the deck where I actually got a little sun burn. It felt so surreal to be sitting outside in the sun in a skirt and sleeveless shirt when just a few days ago we got nearly a foot of snow and I had to break out my winter jacket again.
I hope everyone had a lovely Easter and/or weekend!
