Easter is an interesting holiday in this house. We're far away from family, so it isn't one where we get together for a big Sunday dinner with extended family members. And we don't have kids, so awaiting the Easter Bunny's arrival and hunting for hidden Easter eggs aren't really on our agenda for the weekend. That said though, I do still like to do a few things to make the holiday special.
Sometimes my sister Emma comes to visit for the weekend and sometimes it's just Alex and me, but regardless, we always have Easter baskets filled with goodies. It's not toys or stuffed animals usually, but there is always chocolate. This year's Easter basket was filled with a few of Alex's and my favorites: Cadbury Creme Eggs and dark chocolate mini eggs for me; jelly beans and a Reese's peanut butter filled bunny for my husband. Along with all of that: a bottle of Uproot Wines 2011 Cabernet.
