I started prepping for Easter last night. I love arranging flowers, prepping my menu, and setting the table.
And as I was filling these Depression glass baskets with jelly beans, I got to thinking about how candy has become the nucleus of most holidays. It’s not just for Halloween anymore. I guess not a bad thing; certainly comes in handy for those like us carrying a substantial sweet tooth.
Regardless, I was thrilled to have found a palette of jelly beans that match my table runner perfectly.
But before I knew it, we had all this candy. Do you think we went overboard?
I mean really. Look at all this. Good thing we visit our dentist regularly.
Sean and I do our best to teach Mac and Caroline the true meaning of Easter, and just how special of a holiday it is. I could go there, saying that Easter has become just as commercial as the rest of the holidays. But I feel what is the most important thing is quality family time, and loving your children infinitely. Instilling good morals and values. All that good stuff.
And as a parent, I’ve got to be honest; a little candy does go a long way, if you know what I mean.
