An Adult Egg-Hunt

Sunday morning, Sam & I rose early, dressed in a hurry, skipped our usual early-morn coffee, & made the short drive to my parents house. This was the first year Sam had been invited to breakfast with my family, & a long time since I had had a meal in my family home. There were nerves & excitement.

Shortly after we'd arrived, everyone was ushered into my fathers beautiful native garden, designed & nurtured over several years, for an Easter egg-hunt - imagine five adults* running around their parents garden searching for chocolate like they're still wee one's - followed by a delicious breakfast of buttery croissants, gourmet cheeses, hot cross buns, fresh coffee, mango nectar & numerous bottles of  (non-alcoholic) wine. Small gifts were exchanged, a prayer was said & as quickly as we'd come, it seemed time to go again.

Sunday morning was simple & meaningful - a family coming together to celebrate the resurrection of the Son.

I hope you all enjoyed your Easter weekend, in whatever way & for whatever reason.. I hope it was filled with laughter & love.
