Easter Duckies | April 6, 2017
Spring is trying so hard to be sprung here in Seattle. We have had a few days of sunshine (or really just no rain) and the trees and bulbs are starting to sprout. There is always this sense of cautious anticipation this time of year. You want to be excited and jump right into short–sleeved shirts and cropped pants, but then you go outside and realize you still kind of need a down jacket.
For me, my embracing of spring has always coincided with Easter. We were the children in pastel coats, matching hats, and (I may be dating myself here) white gloves. My mom provided big, bright colorful Easter baskets brimming with all kinds of goodies. She would make a big Easter feast and, for dessert, an Easter cake.
