Growing up Easter was a big holiday for my family. We threw a huge party, cooked food on the BBQ, and all of our family and friends would come out to spend the day. I remember being really excited for a day filled with fun and sun.
Then, I grew up, graduated from college, and moved in with the love of my life.
Since then it's just been Brandon and I. It's hard for us to go places on a Sunday because he works graveyard and I have to get up before 5am every week day.
So, we celebrate today the same day we do every other Sunday; by enjoying one another's company, making some food we love, and relaxing. It's definitely different. No huge parties, no buffet tables laden with food, but you know what? I like it. It's small, it's simple, it's comfortable.
Maybe our opinions on this holiday will change once we have a child. I mean, I want them to have just as much fun as I remember having. For now though, it's just us two and I like it just fine that way. To those out there lamenting the fact that we aren't at a shindig, don't worry about us. We're a perfectly happy couple :).
Happy Easter, Sunday, or whatever you choose to celebrate today. Remember, deep down it's all about love and life.
