happy easter-y weekend!

I wish you and yours a wonderful weekend, and if you are celebrating Easter, I hope it involves lots of eggs. Last year, we hosted a post-church brunch and it was so much fun. It was our first official holiday-hosting gig for the family.

Easter is a special time of year for us; in 2009, when we were married, our wedding day was one week after the holiday and going to church once the season of Lent has passed, with wedding memories in tow, means so much to us.

I dug up some photos from last year's family get together to share as we head into the weekend (btw: these pics are obv. pre-blog and pre-knowing-anything-at-all-about-my-camera). Our menu was really simple and make-ahead friendly. I highly recommend two of my all-time favorite BC recipes if you're still working on yours:

+ Orzo with roasted vegetables
+ Maple-oatmeal scones

We also served fruit and two tartines; one topped with egg salad and the other with cream cheese, smoked salmon, onions, capers and dill. And, of course, a honey-baked ham (with Eddie's favorite mustard-y dip on the side).



One year later, our little egg hunters are so grown up. And, in the past year, we got another nephew and now the three of them have a cousin on the way. Actually, two! Big news: amazing sis-in-law no. 1 - Whitney - is expecting, too!

We are so blessed. Happy Easter, all!
