We had a sweet little day, just the three of us - which I treasured. It was delightful and calm and celebratory and normal and nostalgic all at the same time.
Delightful - the weather was glorious and I believe it was an 11 on the WIZ! Doesn't get any better than that!
Calm - It was just the three of us, which was such a fun treat.
Celebratory - We sang Happy Birthday about 12,943 times, got an easter bunny cake for her to dive into, and let her unwrap a rolling ball.
Normal - We were home most of the day hanging out in the back yard or inside watching the Masters, and ran a boring errand to exchange a baby gate for our den.
Nostalgic - We tried to comprehend that we have a toddler, a one year old, a little girl who can eat cake. We tried to comprehend how this little person, who was just a newborn, can now walk. We soaked up the chance to hold her a little longer each time she seemed to want extra snuggles on this day, did she know it was her birthday? We talked about how we couldn't believe we only have 18 more of these with her.

|Easter Sunday 2012|
Been so thankful to have this song on repeat in my head . . .
Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His Wonderful Face
And the things of earth shall grow strangely dim
in the Light of His Glory and Grace
