Lovely Days

I can not help but love, this time of year. A definitive vibe in the air. A mood. A sense of togetherness. Friends and family and celebration. Easter most certainly has a feel. And Easter two thousand and twelve, has been no exception. We have enjoyed the most wonderful long weekend. The kind I'd like to see keep on going and going... but then, that would be greedy.

On Easter Saturday, we were invited to a three course lunch, catered by dear friends, in their home. A truly splendid day, in every possible way. Sun shining, an abundance of scrumptious food, ten delightfully spirited children bounding around, lots of chit chat and laughter. A fabulous Easter egg hunt to round the afternoon off perfectly. As much a joy for the adults to witness, as it was for the littlies to take part in. 

Today, we were lucky enough to be invited to yet another delicious lunch, with more dear friends (Thanks Jen). Another perfect afternoon in the sunshine, watching our darling young ones relishing in each other's company... and the company of the cutest, pint sized bundle of energy... a new puppy. Beautiful, unforgettable moments, I honestly want to hold close to my heart forever. I am feeling especially blessed after this weekend. Having friends who make us feel as special, as ours do, is a gift in itself.
