Once again we will be away for Easter. It’s the second time and I thought I’d resolved it wouldn’t happen again.
No, I am not so undeserving as to regret last year’s magical vacation in Boston and Martha’s Vineyard. Today we are going to Greece and for months I’ve been skipping-in-the-street excited about our upcoming trip! It’s just the timing. Ages ago in January when we booked the flights it all seemed so far away. But Easter is approaching and I feel a pinch. These trips have come in the way of a much older custom, started I think when Leo was one, and the Easter Egg hunt followed by a massive brunch is my favorite tradition. I blame all of this untimely travel on the school holiday schedule…
Were we coming home a few days sooner, here are some of the things I would likely prepare.
And crucially we would, as every year but last, dye the eggs with leaf and flower motifs.
Happy Easter, happy spring!
