Easter Edibles

Friends! As you may have gathered from last week’s series of late posts (I did finally share that pasta, by the way), things here have been a little busy as of late. After spending the week living out of a backpack and eating takeout, in the name of helping bring this project to life, by Friday I was properly frazzled. And so I made grand plans for the weekend. Plans to spend time catching up on the things I’d been neglecting, like cooking and sleeping and paying my taxes.

I joined my sister in hiding plastic eggs – stuffed with fridge magnets and little socks – for my nephew’s first ever easter egg hunt. Then I stuck around, for egg-dying, kite-flying, playground-exploring and barbecuing in the evening sun.
