Fun Finds For Mom

Happy Easter & Passover!

I love springtime — the perfect sunny breezy weather, inhaling the overwhelmingly delicious smell of orange blossoms, the beginning of swimming season, and memories of past spring seasons growing up in Phoenix.

This year, we got to celebrate Passover at a big seder at my friend Erika’s house. It was such a treat getting together with friends, and giving the kids a taste of their Jewish heritage. My parents are Jewish and Presbyterian, so we grew up celebrating Easter, and having the occasional Passover seder. I was really inspired by the seder, and may even host my own next year. I was worried it would have to be a serious, ultra-traditional event, but I think I’m over that fear now. Tomorrow we’ll be spending Easter with my parents, who are just back from their month-long cross-country driving trip. The kids had a blast decorating eggs at school and again today at home. Tomorrow, candy overload, yummy brunch, and egg-hunts galore. Wishing you all a wonderful spring weekend.
